When it comes to precision and accuracy, the paring knife is every chef's answer. This 4" Swiss Classic Paring Knife with Spear Point is extremely sharp and ready for anything from slicing and dicing to peeling and garnishing. The smooth, uniform cuts will help you make every meal a work of art. With the 4" Swiss Classic Paring Knife you can expertly remove pepper seeds, core an apple, trim beans, and devein shrimp with ease.
A versatile paring knife is an essential tool in every kitchen. Like the chef's knife, a paring knife is meant to be used for a wide array of jobs; however, the first and foremost function of a paring knife is detail work and greater control. Its slightly curved blade and pointed tip even resemble a chef's knife, but, is a fraction of the size, which makes it great for small, precision cuts where control is essential. The 4" blade length, slightly longer than the standard 3 1/4" parer, offers additional strength when slicing and dicing fruits and vegetables. The pointed tip allows you to make intricate cuts or check the tenderness of meat and vegetables. With increased maneuverability and dexterity, you'll find endless opportunities to utilize this nimble knife.
Featuring a world-renowned blade and perfect balance, the 4" Swiss Classic Paring Knife provides a professional-grade tool optimized for home use. The tapered knife edge is ground in two directions to hold a sharp edge longer, and can easily be brought back to its original sharpness.
We’ve selected the best attributes derived from our rich commercial heritage and modified them to suit the home chef. The Victorinox Swiss Army Swiss Classic collection offers a contemporary handle, inspired by our patented Fibrox Pro line.

Whether a seasoned, or novice home chef, Victorinox Swiss Army offers not only the right tools and the know-how, but most importantly, the confidence to achieve one’s culinary aspirations. Expertly crafted in Switzerland since 1884, Victorinox offers a lifetime guarantee against defects in material and workmanship.
In 1937 Victorinox began selling cutlery in America through a Connecticut distributor called R.H. Forschner & Co. A well-known manufacturer of butcher scales, Forschner soon became the exclusive U.S. distributor for Victorinox knives, and was the name by which Victorinox knives were known.
In 2011 Victorinox began marketing all its product lines, including kitchen knives, under the common umbrella name by which the company is now popularly known – Victorinox Swiss Army.
Care and Use
Be good to your knives and they’ll be good to you. Following these simple guidelines will ensure that you get the longest life out of your knife!
Victorinox Swiss Army recommends washing all knives by hand. For best results, hand wash your knives with a soapy cloth and dry immediately.
While Swiss Classic knives are dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing as dishwashers are designed to spray water at a relatively high pressure, which can jostle the silverware and cause the knives to collide, dulling the edge.
Maintaining your Knife’s Edge
For optimum performance, knives should be honed after every couple of uses. Proper and frequent use of a honing steel will keep your knives sharper and performing at their best, but remember that a honing steel will not sharpen a dull knife. Honing steels are maintenance tools and are used to help keep an already sharp blade from degrading. During use, a knife edge becomes rolled or turned from direct contact with cutting boards, bones or other hard objects. In this case, honing is necessary to straighten the edge of the knife. After significant use, the steel particles become damaged and the edge cannot be brought back by honing, so sharpening is necessary. If your knives are dull, pitted, or you see visible nicks on the cutting edge, you’ll need to sharpen with a Swiss Sharp Handheld Sharpener (49002) or bring to a professional for re-sharpening.
History and Heritage
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and the cutlers’ union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 with the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as “inoxydable” and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born.
Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland."

Buggers are sharp!!!! They slice, they dice, if they did any better you'd have to leave a $20 on the counter everytime you used it!!!!
Ok enough of my infomercial and "professional" references.... Lol
Seriously these knives rock!!! Loving it and will be ordering more!!!
As always I paid full asking price for my knife on Amazon receiving no discounts, compensation, or sexual favors for my review. I simply write honest reviews about items and products I purchase and use to help others make better educated buying decisions.
If you found this review helpful please let Amazon and others know by clicking yes however if you didn't please let them know that as well.
It is my sincerest hope that I've been able to help someone out! Thanks for reading!!!
My only legitimate gripe with this was the packaging. This came in an orange padded envelope, and the only thing around the knife, besides the envelope itself, was a thin, stick-on plastic fingerprint cover. This led to me stabbing my leg through the package as I brought my mail inside.
The above complaint doesn't keep this from being a good product - it's just a warning to anyone who buys this to exercise caution once it's delivered.
CONS: Handle is thin, hard plastic. The handle is hard to grip especially with wet hands. The four inch blade is just a little too long for my taste...you might like it.
OVERALL: Good paring knife for the price. Like the blade geometry better than my Wusthof paring knives and much, much cheaper though the handle needs improvement,
washed them well w/ tea tree oil castile soap, hot water, dried them w/ kitchen towel
then tried them on many veggies, carrots, wong bok etc ,, wow wow wow, sharp
it was 5 stars & then my mind keep telling me better not cut my fingers w/ this bad boy ,,
guarantee will be hurt so bad & blood all over the place ,, uuuuhhh, am afraid now ha ha ha
my point is, this one not for the faint-hearted & if you do, be careful when using this ,,
having cold/flu medicine & operating this not really smart idea ha ha ha ,, alcohol even worst ,,
so am keeping this for day2day cooking not like those 'romantic' cooking date with my spouse ha ha ha
you need to focus & steady when using this bad boy as they are sharp ,,
the most sharp knife ever have ,, even my japanese knife isn't as sharp as this
however this one is thin (like razor blade it is, guess that's why it is so sharp)
am plang not 2sharpened it for long time so it will be bit dull for safety :D
Highly rec & will be buying again ,, victorinox rocks, made in swiss another positive point
I also own (and have used for many years) the Victorinox Utility Knife. More or less, if not exactly, the same thing but with a different shaped handle. Not fair to really say one is better or more comfortable than the other but they do have completely different feels. I thought I prefered the utility knife but that may have been because I had become so accustomed to it that if just felt natural. I use my knife 5 days a week in my job and now the paring knife feels normal. Ultimately it doesn't matter. I love them both so long as I maintain the edge
I assume that like the utility knife, with abuse (like using it as a box knife), the blade could snap and/or the handle could easily break... at no fault of the knife's. It is more of finesse blade and not heavy duty. I use/abuse mine pretty much for everything all day long so needing to replace a lost or damaged knife every year or so comes as no surprise and not a big deal. Used and maintained properly it should last for years I would (but can only) imagine.
I plan to continue to be a repeat customer of Victorinox knives.
I received nothing in exchange for this review and paid full price for the item!

I am actually a little bit afraid to use this knife, I managed to cut myself the first time because I have never used anything so sharp. If you are someone who is kinda clumsy look for something that is perhaps not as sharp.
Make a funky steak knife collection.
Perfect sharp everyday knife for juicy tomatoes.
