Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoying my new pairing knife I received this knife as a Christmas gift -- I had requested a good pairing knife, but didn't want too much spent on it. My son found this knife on sale and got it for me. I love it -- it has a good hand-feel, with just the right about of weight. The blade is sharp -- not being to smart, I decided to lightly brush my finger against it in a way none of my other knives would have broken the skin -- this one did. On a more practical note, this knife slides effortlessly through a ripe tomato better than any knife I have owned. I will be taking good care of it and hope to add to the set down the road.

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 2 out of 5 by from The worst CS ever and material not as it should b I have had this knife for a while and have noticed a hairline crack in it, Not abused and one of my 4 Z knives. Wrote to company and after 6 weeks received an email that says to ship it for inspection and IF it qualifies, they shall replace in 12 week!!!! No mention if they would return my knife if it does not qualify and seems to be an excuse for just wasting my time and money.;

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need it, you just don’t know it yet! Love the size and quality of this pairing knife, I’m somewhat knew to quality knives so I was a bit hesitant to spend the same amount I could get a whole block set for with some of the cheaper knives.. I could not be happier with my decision. This will be our 3rd Zwilling knife product! The knives comes sharp right out of the package but I will be having it sharpened here at a local knife sharpener in order to get the full potential out of this baby. My wife and I spend more time cooking together ever since we have been using these knives.

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.

WHAT IS THE ANGLE OF THE BLADE EDGE? and can you make a master list for your product lines or put it in the product specs it is AS IMPORTANT as the size and weight!!!!!!

Asked by: gsmdtx
Thank you for contacting ZWILLING! And thank you for your feedback. We will certainly forward your feedback to the appropriate team for consideration. Our blade edge angle for all our Western Knives are 15 degrees on each side. Except for Santoku Blades, the blade-edge is 10 degrees on each side. Thank you ZWILLING

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?
