The small all-purpose knife that is known as the paring knife gets its name from its function. Pairing is defined as cutting away the outer surface and to removing the ends from either fruit or vegetables. Used for the preparation of fruit or vegetables in meals, other functions include the removal of cores, precision peeling, removing seeds to trimming meats.
The paring knife is a light-weight short blade with a pointed tip that is better suited for more delicate responsibilities that the kitchen knife would be too big for. The durable edge can suit more heavy-duty root vegetables or more deft actions like peeling and trimming.
