Turning or Peeling Knives

Small curved bladed knives for shaping, trimming and peeling vegetables. The classical turning knife as a distinctly curved blade that makes for easy turning of vegetables: that is cutting into a barrel shapes.



Blades between 5cm/2in to 10cm/4in. As with paring knives look out for a tang that is the full length of the handle and a good sized bolster to prevent fingers slipping onto the blade. The price you pay then depends on the quality of the steel. Some handles have the fused tangs and no rivets, so the choice it depends on how much you want to spend and personal preference.
