1. Wusthof WU4066/09 CLASSIC Paring Knife in One Size Black and Stainless Steel.



Promising review: ” I was using Wusthof steak knives to cut my stone fruit and lemons and such with good results, until my husband bought this paring knife. I have been missing out! This thing is SO sharp. It’s shorter than my Wusthof steak knifes so there is a lot less chance of stabbing my other hand that’s holding the fruit. ” – Claire T.
