 How to correctly hold a knife using the Professional Pinch Grippinchgrip


I have fond memories of my grandmother and paring knives. She would always use them, I mean always. When I told my mother about writing this review she instantly thought of her mother. My grandmother grew up on a farm. She used every part of everything. She would use a paring knife to get small bits of meat off a bone, she would cut an apple so that all parts could be eaten, she really loved her paring knives. Below are a few examples of the many ways to use a paring knife.
