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.

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.

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.

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

    Who wouldn't love a banana yellow knife to color code specifically for bananas? Win-win, right? It's sharp, vividly colored, appears sturdy and is reasonably sharp for a paring knife. Dishwasher friendly, it seems it will last a long time.
    This company knows how to make a knife! Super sharp and holds the blade for a long time. Handle is comfortable too. I have several!
    These paring knives are very reasonably priced. The handle features a no-slip grip construction and the 3" blade size is great for more detailed and intricate projects. This knife also features a yellow handle which is great for color coding.
    This is a really good and comfortable to use 3 inch long pairing knife I got the yellow handle I really like all different colors they have
    This is a great line of paring knives for color coding your kitchen. If you want a quality paring knife at a reasonable price, I would buy this knife! Don't let the price fool you.

    These knives are awesome. The different colors can be assigned different tasks in the kitchen. Its a good blade that slices well with a comfortable grip.
    Yellow! Poultry knife, great for color coded kitchens. I definitely don't like to use the knife I just prepared the chicken with for the salad too. Now with these it's easy to differ which knife was used for what.
    Our staff loves these small paring knives. The selection of different colored handles is great as we can keep each color designated for a particular area or a a specific food product in our restaurant.
    This is a good qualitly paring knife. The handle is comfortable and the bright yellow makes it easy to see in the dishwasher or drawer. Five stars.
    These have held up well to a kitchen crew that is not the best at taking care of the knives. So far they have not been able to destroy any.
    Mercer Millennia knife are among the best around. We not longer have to read over adds. They come razor sharp and offer different color hands so each knife state in it own work station.
    These are great little paring knives for prepping chicken and other fowl, as the yellow handle is intended to serve. They are sharp as razors when they come and fairly easy to keep sharp. I can only recommend them.
    Out of all the colors of this knife ( and we bought each color) this is my favorite. Even the employees pick out which color they want to use and they are happier doing their job. and did I mention the price.....CAN'T BE BEAT!
    Awesome and perfect little knife, love the color codded handle, makes it easy to know which knife you've used on what project (this lowers the risque of cross contamination).
    You are just not going to fine nicer made knives for this low price. The handles are tough and the steel is of good quality. They take and hold an edge just fine and the colors are fantastic. This is our onion knife.
    This is my favorite paring knife! Light, sharp and comfortable to use for just about everything, this knife has it all. Now I want one in every color!
