Dexter-Russell’s 3 1/8” Scalloped Paring Knife – Basics® Series (P94846) is an excellent all-purpose knife. Next to a chef’s knife, there is no knife more versatile than the paring knife. Finely sliced onion and pepper rings, slivered fruits and gentle garnishes can all be yours by wielding a paring knife. The scalloped edge makes this knife perfect for cutting into thicker skinned fruits and other fibrous foods. High carbon stainless steel gives the blade greater edger retention and prevents staining that can occur from oxidation. The handle is made of a slip resistant polypropylene that is ergonomically designed to provide a safer and more comfortable grip.
