Paring Knives

Paring Knives

Perform all of your peeling, slicing, dicing, and other precision tasks with these commercial grade paring knives. They may be the smallest blades in a chef's arsenal, but they're also a vital part of the prep work done in any professional kitchen. We offer all sorts of different edge styles, blade types, and handle materials so you can find the right paring knives for your business. First, decide what kind of edge you want. A smooth edge is perfect for creating even slices of fruits and vegetables, while a serrated edge will make it easier to cut through tougher skin and rind. Next, consider your daily cutting tasks to determine which blade type is best for you. Curved models like bird's beak and spear point blades are great for peeling, while sheep's foot and straight blades are better suited for chopping. You can also pick out your optimal grip by checking out our selection of handles. Whether you need the reliable value of polypropylene, the luxurious look of rosewood, or the ultimate grip of santoprene, we've got you covered! Like many of our blades, these commercial paring knives are available in a variety of colors to help you stay organized and prevent cross contamination. For superior sanitation, many models are NSF Listed.

Bring the professional quality that you've come to expect from Mercer Cutlery to your commercial kitchen with this Mercer M21052 Genesis 2 1/2" forged bird's beak peeling knife. Each knife is designed with an ergonomic Santoprene handle to guide the one piece, fully forged, razor sharp blade for superior performance.

Also known as a tourner knife, this blade is perfect for creating intricate garnishes and precise cuts for elaborate presentations. A tourne cut is most commonly used to prepare potatoes, carrots, or squash, giving these formless vegetables a defined, blunt-ended football shape when they are being served as part of a main entree.

The Santoprene that comprises the handle is a high performance, soft material that offers a safe and comfortable non-slip grip for all day use. It will not break down when exposed to kitchen oils, and is able to withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures.

Additionally, this knife's high carbon, traditional German no-stain steel blade features hand-polished edges that are taper ground for superior stability, easy-honing, and long-lasting sharpness. It won't rust, corrode, or discolor. A thick bolster strengthens the knife, adds durability, and provides optimal balance for a sturdy grip.

Blade Length: 2 1/2"

    knife great knives peeling blade nice handle potatoes holds tourned

    This is a very nice peeling knife. It is easy to hold and we find the curved shape has multiple uses. We cut the tops out of strawberries and tomatoes. It works great to cut the center out of peppers when we make stuffed peppers.

    Excellent knife. Feels good in my hand and very sharp. I used it to clean and process ears of corn and it sliced through everything. I would purchase another if I had the need to.


    This is an amazing knife that is a "must-have" for every serious chef! Not just for garnishing, it makes prepping onions so much easier than with a paring knife.

    I use this knife for peeling potatoes, mango, peaches, etc. it is a fantastic little knife. The material that coats the handle is nice. I feel confident that these knives will not slip out of my hand.

    Have had this knife for years in my knife kit from school. 6 years later, i'm still using it and it holds a great edge. Nice for torneing potatos and radishes. Also great for peeling.

    The razor-sharp contoured blade and pointed tip make peeling and carving produce a cakewalk. The knife is 7-3/8" long from end to end, with handle being 3-13/16"

    This is a great knife I own just about every knife in the series and use these knives at work and at home nothing can ever. Compare with the quality or price these knives have beat knives four times the price in test

    Just like all the other Mercer Genesis knives, this one has a forged blade, the same rubberized handle (which is quite nice) and a bolster without a gap. The blade geometry makes peeling fruits and veggies a breeze, and its also good for some decorative garnishes!

    I use a Mercer peeling knife to do all of my tourne work. After trying some of my friends' knives, I will say that these are as good+ as the pricier options.
