    I have several, and I like having my options. The short stubby parer is what I pull out for hulling strawberries and coring stuff. The regular pointy-tip parer gets every-day use. My sheep's foot gets used more with peeling and light chopping, and my slightly longer carbon petty gets used with bigger fruits.

    I've posted this set of parers before, and I still love the idea. I would love a maker to offer a set of 3 or 4 paring knives.

    Hmmm. It depends on which crowd you're after. The twobest parers I've ever used are both Sabatier TIs; One is a Nogent (I use it daily), and the other is their standard 4" parer with the rosewood handle. However, I'm not much good with a paring knife, but I amworking on it. My MIL can peel a potato in about 3 seconds with one and I want to be that good with one. My wife is almost as fluent in the language of the parer as her mom is and they both like 3" blades with very little height and an edge that is flush with the handle.

    However, Pierre is making my wife a custom parer with his "standard profile" and bulletproof materials.she almost made me keep that beautiful dammy with mammoth ivory parer I had for sale. So, in my mind, because it's a cross between what I like and what she likes (she's a parer expert), I say something very similar to that one.

    A little late, but the bottom one is my fave.

    The blade on the bottom one is almost exactly my Henckels right down to the bolster that needs a little grinding.

    Too handle heavy. Blade's OK though.

    Prototype: 1.5mm thick, 16mm tall, 3 inch blade, 4 inch handle.

    This one is san mai with carbon core and mountain mahogany.

    The handle and spine are straight with each other, it looks off in the pic.

    I made this one sitting down, prefer standing.
