An appetizer can be a chef's best friend. You can excite your family and friends palate with a medley of well-balanced and precision cut ingredients. A large kitchen knife simply won't do for all tasks; a smaller, more agile knife is recommended for precision based cutting.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon Paring Knife is very versatile and can be used for small mincing jobs (eg, for mincing shallots, onions and herbs) as well as cleaning, peeling and cutting fruits vegetables.
Smaller cuts of meat, trimming fats, preparing appetizers, and peeling are common uses. For hundreds of years this German steel has evolved to become more durable and ergonomically balanced; a chef's #1 tool to remain consistent, accurate and fast (save time switching between multiple blades).
