Paring knives are essential for most commercial kitchen situations, since they are the go-to tools for slicing, dicing, paring and peeling. These knives are typically a little smaller, with short blades and easy-to-grip handles. This paring knife is no different, although special in its own right. The Dexter-Russell 3” Paring Knife – Basics® Series (P40843) provides a straight blade with a pointed tip. At only about 3 ¼” inches long, this blade is easy to maneuver and perfect for peeling small fruits and vegetables, or slicing and dicing them on a small cutting board.The easy-to-clean polypropylene handle provides a comfortable grip.
