      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good utensil

      We have a set of knifes in a block but when I saw these knives reduced, I thought I would buy one. It's nice to have a knife for certain things, so I use this one for cutting veg. I am no chef and I am not too sure which knife you are supposed to use for which item but I use this to cut vegetables and salad. 

      ==Price and availability==

      The cost of the knife is £3.99 but I bought it half price for £2. It is available in many different colours. 

      ==Description==

      The knife is 10 cm long with a strong thick handle and a thin but sturdy blade. The handle is long enough to be able to wrap your fingers around and get a good hold of it. I do not find the handle slippy or troublesome to hold. The blade is strong and steady with a sharp edge that can be sharpened to keep on top of it. The blade is designed as a paring knife and a multi purpose one but it's not robust enough to cut through bone. I am keeping the knife purely for vegetables. 

      What I like about the knife is the colour. The brightness makes it easy to see in the drawer so there is no awkward fumbling around. You can locate it straight away. The knife is sharp and it has remained sharp despite it being used at least once a day. It makes fast work of carrots and cucumber amongst other vegetables. 

      ==Overall==

      The knife is good quality and for the money it is a good buy. You can afford to keep replacing the knife with a new one ever so often and it would be worth doing it. I find the knife easy to work with, I can cut and dice things easily and I find that leaves my vegetables with a nice neat line. The knife comes with a sheaf to store it in however in my opinion it's not prestigious enough to keep a cover on so I just throw it in with the rest of the kitchen utensils. I would recommend it, it's good quality and a good price. You can buy it in a number of colours, I have it in yellow so that it can be easily seen in the washing up bowl and around the kitchen.

        For the price super sharp

        Kitchen Craft Colourworks Multi-Purpose Paring Knife

        I have to admit that although I love cooking I am a liability when it comes to sharpening knives. I have tried steels, and gadgets that should make it easy... However I always end up injuring myself. As such I concluded that the bast way forward for me was cheaper knives (so I could just buy more)...

        I have since picked up two of these knives. The first before Christmas for £3.99, and the second in the sales for only £1. (They are purple, and blue however they both function in exactly the same way)...

        I was a bit sceptical about these knives thinking they would be really blunt, and the colour would flake from them, however having so few shops available in the small town I live in I had to kind of 'suck it up' as my other kitchen knives are so blunt...

        These knives are 10cm long, and have a 5 year guarantee, which for the price paid seems to be a good deal.

        I find these knives to be comfortable to hold as they have an indentation placed perfectly to place me index finger in, when clasping the handle... (I am a woman so this may be different for men who have bigger hands)... The handle itself has no grip on it though, which could prove to be 'slippy' if your hands were wet (it hasn't posed such a problem so far but it could)...

        Each of the blades is nice and strong no bending or wobbles have occurred, and they have managed well at cutting things of an appropriate size - I point this out as I got one wedged in a giant potato the other day - but to be fair I have always been taught the knife should be long enough to come out the other side of what you were cutting, and I should have thought this through before tackling the GIANT potato...

        Neither of these blades has scratched at all, and I find the protective case for the blade to be useful. I keep my knives in a drawer, and I do utilise the case for them. Although I try to be careful with them, I have a bit of paranoia about it - thinking that if I were to put the dirty knife in them and a bit of 'chicken' (or just general germ riddled bit of 'stuff') were to come off there is no way of scrubbing the inside of the case...

        A really good knife for the price paid - highly recommended.
