    High quality knife. Very glad to use an American product. My only improvement would be a more weighty handle. Other than that I am very pleased with this product and would recommend it.

    These are made with my favorite color grey/silver so... they will always look great to me. They are very sharp when you open them so be careful. This is a great all purpose knife, I keep in a travel case so I can bring them with me to dinner at family and friends. You are sure to have the knife you want or need with this set.

    Used the Dexter-Russell 29473 V-Lo 3 1/2" Paring Knife to cut celery. I was able to use the knife to cut celery big and cut celery so thin. Really great. Easy to use. Fast delivery.

    Good paring knife. The grip on the handle is nice and the blades come super sharp. Not too hard to sharpen and maintain. Will buy again.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    One of the best paring knives I have used. Small handle but easy to grip handle makes this a very useful knife. I have abused it and it keeps on cutting! Run it through the dishwasher almost daily and it is still performing like new.

    Love this paring knife, it's so sharp and stays sharp forever. Never needs sharpening. Use this mainly for hulling strawberries and cutting bar fruit as well as veggies.

    from Legends Restaurant Posted on

    Extremely sharp and light. I like the nimbleness for cutting garlic, strawberries, and small fruits. The soft grips make these knives extremely stable and safe feeling in the hand. Great knife.

    After receiving this knife...I thought I would be disappointed because of the size. (it's a little bigger than I thought it would be) But, instead it's so lightweight and works well! Thank you!

    Super lightweight paring knife! Great for peeling potatoes! The handle is comfortable and easy to clean and maintain! Great price! Comes sharp straight out of the box!!!

    Posted on

    This is a nice little knife. It's very sharp and the handle is very nice to hold, it has a great texture that gives it a good grip. If you're going to do a task that requires using a paring knife for a while, this is a great tool. Personally, I tend to use paring knives more for little things - cut a few slices of cheese, open some packaging, etc. - so it's beneficial to have only one nice paring knife, and then four or five cheaper paring knives for one-use applications. This is the one nice knife for my set.
