Nogent Expert Paring Knives

Hugh Acheson, James Beard Award--winning author and chef

"Paring knives are great to have around the kitchen because they are versatile. I can butcher a pig with a paring knife if I need to. Or I can slice vegetables or even cut herbs in the garden without having to wield a huge 10-inch chef's knife. Paring knives are definitely my most-used knives in the kitchen, and they're affordable if they need to be replaced for any reason."
