I always have a couple of these laying around. Good little knife that wont break the bank.
great little knife for the $
This knife is the sharpest knife I have used. It stays sharp.
Came with a great factory edge. Not as pretty as some forged knives,but if you’re interested in utility at a low price it’s a great knife.

Very sharp and comfortable paring knife for the price. I’d pay more if it was a bit heavier.
I don’t particularly like it,mainly because I find the handle too small.
After I lost my second Henkels paring knife I looked for a less expensive substitute. This knife is just about as good at 15% of the price. I now have two.

I was a little reluctant to purchase a paring knife for under $6.00,and expect it to be sharp. However,this is by far the sharpest paring knife I have purchased thus far,and I recently retired,and have purchased quite a number of paring knives. I will certainly recommend these knives and will definatly purchase more. Thank you so much. Lena
Bought as an inexpensive utility knife,does the job well

I have owned at least a dozen Victorinox parers of various sizes and handle patterns over the years...
My take on these knives is that they are very well designed and as well made as a cast plastic handled knife can be,however the blade steel is typical "Swiss Army Knife" stainless; very stain resistant,but soft and not terribly wear resistant. When compared to other non-exotic stainless steel knives they are easy to sharpen,take a fairly good edge and hold it for a reasonable period. But they are nothing like the best carbon steel knives or some of the more modern stainless alloys.
The trade off in their favor though is that they are very hard to chip or break and if you do manage to severely damage one it’s cheap to replace!
If you want a reliable,competent knock-about parer it’s hard to go wrong with one of these!
