In the pictures you see the 15cm Paring knife which makes it the ideal size for multiple purposes. For the best experience, use a wood support to use your Ceramic knife rather than a plastic or glass. Ceramic knives are a much more suitable culinary tool for slicing boneless meat, vegetables and fruit. Nevertheless, since they are brittle they may break if dropped on a hard surface, and cannot be used for chopping through bones, or frozen foods.
