The kitchen scalpel.
This small chef knife works large miracles on delicate jobs. Ideal for hand held work, the extra small blade and ample handle master the nitty gritty of fine details. Great for coring, peeling and decorative work on fruits and vegetables, as well as all the subtle touches in fine recipes.
Cutting edge design equals paring proficiency.
Most paring knives are very "pointy" and often unintentionally dig into fruit and vegetables interrupting the flow of cuts. The G-Fusion Mini Paring knife has a modified "Drop Point Design" which results in a more "forgiving" knife that doesn't get stuck when, for example, coring an apple or removing the eyes of a potato. Once you get used to this unique shape, you'll love it and never want to use another paring knife. The broad belly and generous curve are particularly perfect for those who tend use a paring knife for everything. Though the blade is small, the handle is ample- giving the blade a firm agility in the hand.
