The Paring Knife

"Our Favorite Knives." Saveur Magazine test kitchen


 A Cup of Tea with NWKW's Paring Knife from New West KnifeWorks on Vimeo.


The search for the perfect paring knife is over. And for those who only use a paring knife, this is the only one you will need in your kitchen.  Each chef knife comes in an embossed leather sheath. Unlike many paring knives which are very "pointy" and dig into fruit and vegetables when you use them, the Fusionwood 2.0 paring knife has a modified Drop Point Design.  This results in a more forgiving knife when you are coreing an apple or removing the eyes or blemishes from potatos.  Once you get used to this unique shape, you will love it. And one last thing, just because the blade is small, doesn't mean the handle should be dinky too. Our Paring Knife handle is a fair four inches which lends firm agility to the hand.

"When presentation is a concern, the paring knife is your savior. Control, balance, and small features make detailing your final ingredients much easier. Having hands like a surgeon do help too." - Anthony Campolattaro Sales and Marketing Guru.
