A paring knife has a plain edge blade that's good for peeling and doing other intricate tasks such as de-veining prawns, removing seeds, or preparing garnishes. Paring knives are designed to be an all-purpose knife, like a smaller version of a chef's knife.
On the other hand, a peeling knife has a pointed tip that curves downwards, which is why it's sometimes referred to as a bird's beak knife. Peeling knives are like paring knives but more specialised - they're great for cutting decorative garnishes, slicing soft fruits, and removing skins and blemishes.
Every kitchen needs a paring knife or peeling knife – its small size gives it a great advantage in intricate tasks that need a lot of hand control such as peeling and removing blemishes.
