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.

Place the blade of the knife on the flat surface with the edge facing away from your body. Flip the knife and wipe the other side of the blade as well. Dip the knife in the solution and then take it out. Using a cloth soaked in the hot water solution, scrub the blade of the knife. Do it very lightly to prevent scratches. After you have removed visible dirt from the blade of your knife, clean the handle with soapy water. Rinse the knife thoroughly under running water. Dry the knife by using a clean dishtowel. Wash kitchen knives immediately after using them so that the food does not dry on their blades. It is never accepted to place your knife in a drawer without a plastic guard. Make sure that knives lying on flat surfaces are never covered with towels or napkins. After handling a knife, lay it down in a clear area with the blade and point away from the body and away from the edge of the table or cutting area. A knife guard is a rigged plastic sleeve that fully encloses the blade. A glass knife block sits on the counter offering convenient access when working and when safely putting knives away. A magnetic bar is a wall mounted magnetic bar design to hold knives firmly in place.

Grasp the knife by the handle allowing your thumb and index finger to rest on the blade for support. Before handling a knife, put a light to medium duty cut resistant glove on the hand opposite of the hand that holds the knife. The glove will stay on the hand until the knife has been cleaned and properly stored. Use the right knife for the right job. Keep it sharp.

If you've spent any meaningful amount of time in the kitchen you have cooked with garlic it is one of the most versatile ingredients on earth. So versatile in fact that almost every cuisine on the planet uses it. Today well show you how to prepare smooth garlic paste. Begin by breaking apart the head of garlic. You can do this with your hands or with a knife if the head is very hard. Once you've freed the cloves carefully trim the root and then give it a tight pinch and twist an you will feel the skin loosen. Carefully use your paring knife to clean the skin away from the clove. Once the garlic cloves are all cleaned you usually need to remove the germ, as the garlic matures the germ in the center grows green and develops a bitter quality. Slice the clove in half and use the tip of your paring knife to easily remove the germ. To speed up the pace process mince your garlic into small even pieces. Start with tight horizontal cuts, then tight vertical cuts, and finally tight cross cuts. No need to dispose of the root end here. Mince it into the same size and proceed to the next clove. To turn the garlic into paste we'll use salt not only as a flavor enhancer but as an abrasive to grind the garlic mince into a smooth mash. Evenly season your garlic mince with salt. Then carefully use the side of your chef's knife to grind the salt garlic mixture into an even paste, it only takes a few minutes to turn your mince garlic into a homogenized mixture. The paste can be used in Italian salad dressings, Chinese stir fries, Spanish marinades, Moroccan tagines, its applications are limitless

    I purchased this along with the forged version. I prefer larger handles while others who use my knives tend to prefer a small handle so I purchased both models. Out of the box, the millennia knife seems a bit sharper than the forged, which I tend to find with stamped knives. Since it’s a softer steel than the forged version, this will need to be honed and sharpened more often but it holds it edge for a long time. For those who wish to self sharpen beak pairing knives i wouldn't really bother for stamped knives since they are relatively cheap but you can use sharpening/honing rods most of the time. Alternatively you can go to an auto body shop and get fine grit sandpaper. Wrap a pen,a honing steel, or and round/curved surface with the sand paper and sharpen the blade as you would on a stone. Since it is rounded it makes it very easy to sharpen the curved blade. I will purchase again.
    Even though this knife's blade is shorter than most paring knifes, it is something everyone should have in their kitchen, even it is just one! The handle does fit in the palm of your hand and the blade is rather sharp out of the package. It is great for cutting garnishes or peeling potatoes.
    This is a really awesome blade. The handle is covered in a non slip grip and feel great to wield. The blade comes out of the box extremely sharp and ready to use.
    This item is amazing! It is so sharp it cuts through an apple without even trying! It's small enough to fit in palm of your hand.
    Wonderful mercy millennia peeling or perry knife. Mercer products are heavy duty and well-crafted. They last a very long time and always appear to be sharp.
    small enough for small hands. making it easy for anyone to use. comfortable grips. sharp and last a long time. a must for any cook.
    It is very close to the birds beak knife. I use them everyday. I bought a lot of these knifes. Wow that is what comes to mind when i used these knifes for the first time.
    Good quality and price. Nice feel in the hand. Good weight. Seem to be durable after repeated auto-dishwasher cycles. If they hold up for 6 months I will be happy and reorder.
    This is a really handy knife to have around. Can easily cut through garlic to fruits and/or veggies. These are a really nice knife for peeling tasks.
    These cut fruit extremely well. I've mostly cut strawberries, lemon and carrots with this, and I have yet to have an issue with it. Sturdy little knife.
    I purchased this knife to replace some older paring knives that I had. The blade was smaller than I realized, but that was my fault and not the fault of the description. The handle is a little wider which helps me grip the knife in my hand better for use without getting cramps. The blade is very sharp and works well to peel potatoes, fruit, etc. Definitely glad I purchased two of these knives.
    I love Mercer Millennia paring knives!!! I can't express how impressed I am with their quality. They are the most comfortable paring knives I have ever used! Excellent value! Would definitely buy again! Highly recommended!
    Not very expensive and a good addition to have in your kitchen. I don't like using peelers so I usually use this knife to peel potatoes and other vegetables. It is easy to use. the blade is a good shape for such and the handle is comfortable.
    Shown in the picture compared to other common kitchen knives. This is a strangely proportioned knife, with a good ergonomic handle like the rest of the millennia range. Be careful with the blade as it is not that resistant to being bent.
    This knife isn't the most used tool in my kit, but for the money it is a knife worth having. Has been handy for peeling oranges and other fruits. Nice sized handle for a small blade.
    We bought these paring knives because they were inexpensive. They work perfectly for coring tomatoes and the price is right so it won't be costly to replace them.
