My grandma Bunny was an expert with a paring knife. She believed that fancy peelers and trimming tools were unnecessary if a paring knife would do instead. There were always one or two well-sharpened little blades on the magnetic strip near the stove and guests to her kitchen knew that future dinner invitations would be in peril should they mistreat her tools.
As an adult, I have also become attached to my collection of small, pointy-tipped, and serviceably sharp knives (though unlike Bunny, I often can’t resist picking up a new gadget or tool). As much as I love a good chef’s knife, I find that I reach for a paring knife far more throughout the day.
Recently, I had the opportunity to add Wüsthof’s clip point paring knife to my magnetic strip and it’s become a favorite. The clipped tip gives it a bit of extra flexibility that helps with things like cutting the cores out of tomatoes and hulling strawberries.
Thanks to the nice folks at Wüsthof, I have one of these little paring knives to give away this week. Here’s how to enter.
- Leave a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite kitchen tool is for handling summer produce.
- Comments will close at 11:59 pm east coast time on Saturday, August 22, 2015. The winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog on Sunday, August 23, 2015.
- Giveaway is open to US residents only (and is void where prohibited).
- One comment per person, please. Entries must be left on the blog, I cannot accept submissions via email.
Disclosure: The folks from Wüsthof gave me my clip point paring knife at a press event I attended back in June as a review unit. They are also providing this giveaway unit. However, all the opinions I’ve expressed here are entirely true.
