The paring knife is a small knife with a strong blade and center tip. It is ideal for cleaning, peeling, and cutting small fruits and vegetables.

ZWILLING Pro is the most user-friendly knife available to market. The unique curved bolster acts as an extension of the hand, supporting the professional pinch grip, with thumb and index finger on the blade, for safe cutting and less fatigue. The blade was designed with a broad curve in the front to facilitate the rocking motion of Western cutting, while the straight back is ideal for the Asian chopping motion. The full length of the blade can be used when cutting and can be sharpened from bolster to tip.

  • Curved bolster acts as an extension of the hand, encouraging cutting with improved precision, safety, and comfort
  • Polymer handle is ergonomic and durable
  • SIGMAFORGE knife is forged from a single piece of special formula high-carbon NO STAIN stainless steel
  • Ice-hardened FRIODUR blade starts sharper, stays sharper longer, and has superior resilience
  • Precision-honed blade and laser-controlled edge ensures ideal cutting angle for sharpness and durability
  • Full tang and handle are triple-riveted for superb stability
  • Dishwasher safe, hand wash recommended
  • Manufactured in Germany

ZWILLING Pro 4-inch Paring Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 321.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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 5 out of 5 by 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 from Incredible I am about to embark on a continuous series of fundamental and eventually more advanced cooking classes. As such, it was necessary to purchase the requisite products for my new career as "Home Chef". I had been using the same old knives for as long as I can remember but thought I should upgrade now. The Paring Knife (4 inch) sliced through the vegetables with such ease I kicked myself for not buying one sooner. I will continue purchasing your products as they are obviously made with exceptional care and make cooking a pleasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic Love the traditional rivets in the handle. This knife also has a curved bolster which makes it so easy to grip, and also allows the blade to be sharpened all the way to the end. Full tang and one piece construction keeps it nice and durable, and the life time warranty is just one more reason to add this to the collection. Use it practically every day, is truly an extension of the hand, which is what you want in a good quality parer. Doesn't hurt that it's made by Zwilling, a leader in the cutlery world. Well designed, just like I knew it would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zwilling Pro I had a full Cutco and a 3 piece Kamikoto knive set and I was really happy UNTIL I walked into a Zwilling Store. I was just browsing and Emmy attention was caught from an in store demo, so I decided to try ONE knife and I compared it to my other knives and found myself only using that one over and over. So I needed up going back to the Swilling store and purchased 5 more different knives and spent LESS money than my other previous sets and love them much better and the sharpness of these knives are AMAZING!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp meets sexy This knife looks amazing. The handle is long and comfortable. It is very sharp and cuts easily. My only pet peeve is that the 4" blade is a little long. I am accustomed to using a 3" blade but I am sure I will get used to using the longer blade in no time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for beginners. If someone got into cooking and needs a good upgrade on their knife, this is a perfect introduction. Easy to handle and 60-40 weight distribution (handle bias), the blade is easy to maneuver and doesn’t break the bank (I bought the 7” chef knife and 4” paring from Nordstrom Rack at $99). Would have preferred a wooden handle (not an unreasonable request in this price range), but the deal was too good to pass up. I need to test durability and will be back with an update. Currently, I like it.

What is the difference between the 38400-100, 38400-101, and 38400-103 paring knives?

Asked by: Bret
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.

Asked by: MelanieI
Yes, I see where I can find your blocks, I actually own this one, but the knife does not fit in the small section: I don't really need a bunch of steak knife slots. Might it fit into the 11 slot?
