The versatile paring knife is an essential tool in every kitchen. Like a chef’s knife, a paring knife is intended to be used in a wide variety of jobs; However, the first and most important function of a paring knife is detailed work and greater control. Its slightly curved blade and pointed tip resemble even a chef’s knife, but it’s a fraction of the size, making it great for small, precise cuts where control is essential. The pointed tip allows you to make complex cuts or check the tenderness of meats and vegetables. With increased maneuverability and dexterity, you will find endless opportunities to use this clever knife.
Featuring a world-famous blade and perfect balance, the Classic 3″ Swiss Paring Knife offers a professional tool optimized for home use. The sharpened knife edge is milled in two directions to hold the sharp edge longer, and can be easily returned to its original sharpness. The Victorinox Swiss Army Classic Collection offers a contemporary handle, inspired by the patented Fibrox Pro line. Designed to reduce hand and wrist tension while providing a secure grip, the contoured nylon handle is lightweight and durable, making these knives feel less like tools and more like the extension of your hand.
Whether a seasoned or novice home chef, Victorinox Swiss Army not only provides the right tools and technical expertise, but most importantly it provides the confidence to fulfill one’s culinary aspirations. Expertly made in Switzerland since 1884, Victorinox offers a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
In 1937, Victorinox began selling cutlery in America through a Connecticut distributor called RH Forschner & Co. A well-known manufacturer of butcher scales, Forschner soon became the exclusive distributor of Victorinox knives in the United States, the name for which Victorinox knives were known.
In 2011, Victorinox began marketing all of its product lines, including kitchen knives, under the common umbrella name by which the company is now widely known – Victorinox Swiss Army. Today, the Victorinox Swiss Army still sells a few accessories, including the High Heat Turner line, under the Forschner name.
Care and use
Be good to your knives and they will be good for you. Following these simple guidelines will ensure that you get the longest life of your knife!
Victorinox Swiss Army recommends hand washing all knives. For best results, hand wash your knives with a soapy cloth and dry immediately.
While Swiss Classic knives are dishwasher safe, we still recommend washing them by hand because dishwashers are designed to spray water at relatively high pressure, which can jam the silverware and cause the knives to collide, dulling the edge.
Keep the knife edge
For best performance, knives should be sharpened after every two uses. Correct and frequent use of a sharpening steel will keep your knives sharper and perform at their best, but remember that sharpening steel will not sharpen a dull knife. Steel polishers are maintenance tools and are used to help keep an already sharp blade from getting damaged. During use, the edge of the knife rolls or shifts from direct contact with cutting boards, bones, or other hard objects. In this case, it is necessary to sharpen the edge of the knife. After heavy use, the steel particles are damaged and the edge cannot be turned back by honing, so honing is necessary. If your knives are dull, pitted or you see visible cracks on the cutting edge, you will need to sharpen with the Sharp Portable Swiss Sharpener (49002) or bring it to a professional for re-sharpening.
History and Heritage
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery store in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and his shaped cutlery guild produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with a proprietary feature now famous and universally favored by professional and home chefs. In 1891 Karl supplied the Swiss Army with the Standard Edition Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as “inoxydable” and used to make his own cutlery, Karl changed the company’s name to Victorinox. From those humble beginnings a global icon was born.
Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and the company and family are still based in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.
