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 Certified.

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

    Perfect for little and medium hand, very sharp and stays that way for a while. Perfect for veggies, peeling potatoes or opening packages. Would highly recommend.
    This 3 pack knife set is great for everyday use in the kitchen from coring strawberries to prepping potatoes, they're sharp and fully versatile in a busy kitchen environment
    These are very durable and sturdy knives. Really last a long time and hold up well. Very sharp I must have in any kitchen. Easy to clean and sanitize
    this is a killer deal. Three sharp knives for the price of one! My bar staff uses these knives daily to cut fruit for the bar. Highly recommend.
    Looking for quality paring knives at a good price? Mercer culinary is the ticket, is staff breaks them or looses them you will not be upset because of the value and they have the quality to get the job done.
    I love these knives! The blades are firm and sharp and the handle is comfortable to hold. The price is excellent for the quality. This is great for home or restaurant use.
    Nice pairing knives at a great price. The handle is solid and the blades sharp. They're easy to use for all your pairing tasks. I find them stiff enough for the toughest of foods.
    It came sharp right out of the package and you can't beat the price! The handle is comfortable to hold and it performs better than I expected. I couldn't ask for more.
    These Mercer Millennia paring knives are very good knives for the price. I was unsure at this price if the knife would be very good, but they were super sharp out of the package and have held an edge well
    The Mercer 3" paring knife 3 pack is a great deal. Since paring knives are so useful for multiple tasks, having a 3 pack makes sure there is always one around to use.
    These paring knives are very good. The blade stays sharp for a decent amount of usage and its easy to sharpen. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because the handles are not heat resistant. Once in a while an employee of mine makes a mistake and leaves it by an open flame and they melt then need to be thrown away. But non the less, for the price, I highly recommend.
    This paring knife is good quality and it holds up well. It's a great size and is comfortable and durable. Overall it's a great knife.
    Fantastic paring knife. It has a razor sharp blade that allows you to cut precisely and quickly. Perfect for soft fruits too, such as strawberry and melon
    This paring knife is very sharp, I especially love to use it when opening vanilla beans to make homemade vanilla extract. Glad that it comes in set of three.
    These are super nice knives with a razor sharp blade. Great for a number of uses. Perfect size and the fact they are cheap is great!
    One of the best paring knives I've ever used and it didn't cost a fortune to get this quality. Fits my hand great not sure if it's the shape of the handle or the whole knife but for some reason with my small hands when using other paring knives my fingers always slide onto the top of the knife and when I move them back onto the handle I don't seem to have the proper leverage and this wears out your hand quickly. Also they are very sharp and thin but strong, and they stay sharp for a long time. So this makes it a breeze to cut just about anything!
    Great knives, fit beautifully in the hand and extremely sharp -- great idea to do in 3/pack -- wish the colors were packed this way as well.. When one is "lost" in the kitchen, we all go looking for it as they have quickly become a favorite for us. We've taken to buying several at a time!
    This is a great little economical set of paring knives. We have been using them in our kitchen and have found them to be adequate for a number of different cutting tasks. Easy to clean and and store.
    This is a great price for these quality knives and they work well for cutting smaller peppers, cutting lemons and limes and they sharpen easily and quickly. We will definitely purchase again as needed.
    These are great for all the small jobs that come up during breakfast/lunch service in our coffee shop. The price is great and they've stayed sharp and haven't bent.
    my wife loves this mercer 3 inch paring knife set. They have a razor sharp edge and excellent commercial quality to them. She recommends them!
    My whole bakery needed new all purpose pairing knives and I've used these in the past, so when I saw a 3 pack of these at such a great price, I couldn't turn it down! They are super sharp! (I found out the hard way on that one, be careful!) They are also super economical, I bought enough for all of my co-workers in the bakery with enough for spares! Highly recommend!
    I have purchased a few knives from Mercer now and have been impressed with the quality of their products and the price can't be beat.
    These paring knives are very affordable and I like how they come in a pack of 3. They are perfect for coring tomatoes. I would recommend them.
    These knives are very high quality and built to last! This 3 pack value is unbeatable! Affordable price makes them great to use and abuse and then buy some more!!
