ZWILLING Pro 4-inch Paring Knife is rated out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Valentine from Didn't know what I'd been missing! I received this paring knife from my son for Christmas because I had asked for a new knife. He's one that reviews and studies before purchasing, and this is the one he gave me. I have been using it for 6 months now, and I really never knew what a pleasure it is to have a really good knife! I'm 71 years old and I should have found it before now. But definitely better late than never! I'm very pleased with how it well holds the edge and how easy it is to hold, and the size is perfect for most peeling, slicing, and chopping tasks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lwschaller from 4" Paring knife I love this knife. I have the 3" paring also but want another a bit long for some tasks. I am not disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bourbonbb from A great addition to any set This little three inch parer is the perfect addition to most sets. Generally you get a 4" parer in sets, which is a great knife, don't get me wrong. But for those smaller tasks like peeling an apple or removing blemishes from potatoes, this is great. The Pro line is the best workhorse of a knife out there. You cannot beat a knife that's forged from German steel and made in Germany. It will definitely stay sharp and last a lifetime. The curved bolster is so very comfortable and the three rivet handle has the perfect weight and balance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CookinginCali from Everyone's training knife. The paring knife. The first knife that most, if not all of us, used in our mother's kitchen. The perfect size for little hands and little fingers. So we all have opinions on paring knives. We are all experts! This is a really good knife. It is part of the Pro line. It features one of Zwilling’s best quality steels so it will its edge as well as stand up to a lifetime of use. The innovative angled bolster is easy to grip, keeping the thumb and forefinger in the correct position for maximum control. My only rub on this knife is I prefer a narrower blade. Even though this elliptical shape glides easily around an apple (my test of a good paring knife), I still prefer the narrower blade. (See Zwilling Four Star and Pro S lines for options.) But I am old school. And this new Pro line exemplifies the newest, most ergonomic thinking in knife making. It's your call.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from I love the Pro line and have the complete line on a few magnetic bars in my kitchen. I like to keep them where they are close at hand for whatever job I am working on in the kitchen, there will be a perfect knife for that job on my bar. One of our most popular lines with the curved bolster which supports the pinch grip. This grip provides the safest way to hold a knife and less stress on the wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marco1 from Replaced the same model I used 40 years. I added this to another Henckels paring knife I've been happily using for 20 years. Now, I have two. I ruined the handle in the 1980s and it just now fell apart. The blade is fine and I'll try to epoxy the handle back together. If successful I'll have THREE 4 inch paring knives. Absolutely the best, most reliable line of cutlery. It belong in your home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kammya108 from Great for all the little jobs I love this knife for all the little jobs I have around my kitchen. From peeling and cutting garlic to segmenting an orange, this knife is great! It fits into my hand and is super comfortable. I love the curve from the blade to the handle because it is another feature that just makes this knife the most comfortable one I've ever used.

What is the difference between the 38400-100, 38400-101, and 38400-103 paring knives?
These are all the same knife. The last number in a SKU is different only for packaging purposes.

I just bought this and it doesn't fit in our henckels block. We are not opposed to refreshing the block, do you sell any that it DOES fit in? We were replacing another paring knife from the International collection, but the block is from the German one.
Yes, I see where I can find your blocks, I actually own this one, but the knife does not fit in the small section: https://www.zwillingonline.com/35101940.html I don't really need a bunch of steak knife slots. Might it fit into the 11 slot?
