    Paring knives have short blades, usually 3” to 3.5”, with pointed tips. They are used primarily for work that requires more precision than a chef’s knife, such as peeling fruits or vegetables, segmenting citrus fruits, deveining shrimp, or coring tomatoes. Small and easy to maneuver, they can be more efficient for such detail work than a chef’s knife. Look for one that feels good in your hand and comes with a sharp, sturdy blade. The best paring knives are made of high-carbon stainless steel that holds an edge well and are constructed with a full tang for durability.
