The Kuhn Rikon Comfort Paring Knife Colori is a must have knife in all kitchens. It is perfect for perfect for slicing cheese for your sandwich, peeling an apple for a snack or chopping vegetables for a salad. We just used it last night for BLTs! The Kuhn Rikon Comfort Paring Knife comes in different colors, so you can easily match your kitchen or your style.

The nonstick Japanese carbon steel blade means a super sharp edge and long lasting performance. The nonstick coating ensures foods will release from the blade making each cut easier and neater. The safety sheath helps keep sharp and protects the user when the knife is stored.

This is a great knife that I highly recommend!
