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.

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

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.

    great sharpen colors expected knives need often set smaller hold
    These knives do the trick for small jobs. Having the colors makes it fun, but is great for distinguishing one food product you are working on vs. another; meat vs. chicken, or veggie. Good price to get the job done when you do not need a larger knife.
    Very sharp knives. I use them only to cut lemons. I haven't had to sharpen them yet and they been used quite a bit. They have a great feel and are made well.
    Its a great set of few knives in one box, but they are smaller than expected. And also you need to sharpen then often enough.
    I love the different variety of colors in this set. This is great for color coding in your kitchen. The blades are firm and sharp and the handle is comfortable to hold. They are dishwasher safe and a great quality product.
