Think of A Stainless Steel Paring Knife as a Kitchen Essential

You likely know that a paring knife is a small, all-purpose kitchen knife with a plain-edged blade that’s used principally for peeling and other intricate food prep tasks. Similar to, but smaller than chef’s knives, paring knives tend to range from 2.5 to 4 inches in length. Simply put, a paring knife is a kitchen must-have. As such, yours should be well-designed and of the highest quality, since you’re likely to use it nearly every day if you’re at all active in the kitchen. That’s where the Chroma Type 301 paring knife comes in. Made of pure stainless steel, it’s resistant to stains, rust and corrosion. Better yet, it’s a Type 301 steel developed by the Japanese, whose obsession with optimizing steel pre-dates the Samurai sword.

Chroma 301 Paring Knives Feature an Advanced, Ergonomic Design

Since paring knives are quite versatile they get used a lot, so be sure to find one that’s especially comfortable to hold and to use for long periods of time. Here again, the Chroma 301 fits the bill. Its handle design is the result of collaboration between the German engineer F.A. Porsche (of Porsche 911 fame) and Austrian celebrity-chef Jõrg Wörther. Consequently, it’s both highly stylized and extremely practical. Lightweight and perfectly balanced it almost feels like an extension of the human hand. A raised metal bead on the side of the knife marks where the handle ends and the blade begins; otherwise you might not know. This smooth transition from handle to blade is pleasant to both the eye and the hand, feel and to see, plus it's ultra-hygienic, leaving no crevices where bacteria could hide.
