Wonderful Serrated Paring KnifeOct 12, 2010
By J. Sexton
Every other knife in our knife block is either from the forged Chef's Choice Trizor line of knives or the forged Wustoff Grand Prix line of knives. In other words, our other knives are pretty darned expensive, with the 3.5 inch paring knife running close to $40.
I'm not saying that to brag, but as a means of comparison, because this $9 stamped steel knife is every bit as delightful to use as any of our other knives. Great ergonomics/handle and the thing cuts like a dream on everything we've tried it on. Incredible on tomatoes, great on sandwiches, and outstanding on cheese, vegetables, you name it. It's a wonderful cross between a 4" paring knife and an all-around go-to utility knife.
Most serrated kitchen knifes suck. Either the serrations are too aggressive, like on a Ginsu knife, serrations that basically turn the knife into a glorified hack saw rather than a genuine cutting instrument, or the serrations are nothing more than the wavy pattern you see on most bread knives or restaurant slicers, which hardly ad much to a blade's cutting abilities. Zyliss got the serrations right on this knife - aggressive enough to make short work of a tomato or crusty piece of bread, but not so choppy as to turn the blade into a saw. The only other kitchen knives with serrations this good are Cold Steel's old K5 and K7 line of knives and Spyderco kitchen knives, both of which have been discontinued.
If you're looking for a great paring or utility knife - and especially if you want one with an included cover/sheath that's ideal for camping, tail-gating, and picnics, then this is your knife. For $8 you really can't go wrong.

Outstanding knife!Sep 16, 2008
By Thomas Kirkman
The Zyliss Serrated Paring Knife is one of the best knives that I have ever owned. It is incredibly sharp and is truly a do every thing knife. At four inches it is large enough to do jobs that your three inch knives can't handle. It will even cut bread. The grip surfaces on the handle are in the perfect places, especially on top for the thumb. The sheath fits good and tight and is a great plus.
For eight dollars this is an outstanding deal. What can I say but I love it.

Zyliss Serrated Paring Knife, RedOct 25, 2009
By Amazon Fan
This is the greatest little knife ever. I paid twice the price quoted here at Amazon at a Bristol Farms and it has been worth it. It is sharp and will cut anything. I like it better than the Rachel Ray knives that I got at a great price here on Amazon. I plan to give those away.

POWERFUL LITTLE KNIFE !!!!!Apr 13, 2011
I agree with the last reviewer. This little knife is a good as my expensive top grade Henckel. Cuts a tomato razor sharp thin. Love, love, love it. I have many different knives but this is the best. $8 is a give away, you can't pass up this great knife and even greater value. Great as a bread knife and cutting sandwhiches.

good quality knifeFeb 05, 2010
By Will Siegfried
This serrated paring knife cuts well and is comfortable to hold.The handle is soft--sort of rubbery. There are times when I do find it to be just a bit bigger than I'd like.
