I love nothing more than whipping up a storm in the kitchen and this knife is the one I really find more useful than any other. Part of the colori range from Kuhn Rikon - I own an aqua blue - this paring knife comes in a wide range of colours and even some special edition polka dot patterned blades. I paid £4.49 from TK Maxx for what is arguably the best knife I have ever owned, the average price of this is a reasonable £5-7 making it an affordable buy.
The knife has 9cm plastic handle and a brightly coloured blade, in the exact same shade, which is 10 cm long, it's the size of knife that you are most likely to use most often if you enjoy cooking as I do. It's dishwasher safe and apparently has a two year guarantee. I find that the knife sits comfortably in my hand and is just the right size for everyday use be it cutting onions, apples or slicing carrots. The carbon steel blade certainly makes light work of everything, the first time I used it I was actually shocked at how easily it seemed to glide through the red pepper I was cutting up. I find I can slice onions more easily and quickly and with greater precision than with the averagely sharp knife I had before, it's just a very, very efficient kitchen tool that is a pleasure to use.
The non-stick nature of the cutting surface is a boon as food doesn't stick to it, again making cutting things much less problematic. You do need to be a little careful using at first whilst getting used to how sharp it actually is - the end has a very sharp point and the plastic guard it comes with is actually very useful to keep it safe and from getting dulled. I am careful where I put my knife as the bright coloured look of both the shaft and blade could make it appealing to children who definitely shouldn't be allowed anywhere near it in my opinion. Like all knives this one is not for sale to under 18's.
Since I bought this most of my other knives have languished unused. I've chopped, sliced and diced with it, the blade has not become dulled at all and it comes out of the dishwasher every time looking as good as new. I will definitely be buying more knives in the range, as this is simply so much better than everything else I own. If you are interested I would recommend checking out the link below which has much more flattering pictures of the knives you can buy - I'm particularly tempted by the cupcake paring knife and the melon knife I have to say.
This colori paring knife is a must-own in my opinion, it's great value for money, well designed and makes the job it is made to do easier, and if I could give it 6 stars I most definitely would.
