Brand & Type: R H Forschner 3.25-inch Paring Knife, Large Black Handle
Price range: $5 - $10
Description: 3 1/4 inch paring knife with slip resistant handle made of black fibrox.
Pros: Comfortable handle design. Nice sharp blade out of the box.
Cons: Blade is stamped, that only matters if you want more weight or a thicker blade. At 3.25 inches it might be a little short for some uses. 4 inches is usually too long, so we prefer 3 1/2 inches. Conclusion: This is a very good knife, and of course it comes with the America's Test Kitchen recommendation. We generally prefer heavier knives from Wusthof but this is a nice knife and it is much cheaper than the German or Japanese knives.
