Knife Use

A small curved knife for slicing soft fruits, peeling skins or blemishes from a variety of fruits and vegetables, and cutting decorative garnishes such as rosettes in radishes or fluted mushrooms. Our bird’s beak knife has a concave edge profile that enables a controlled peeling style motion, to keep the tip forward and product on the edge of the knife without slipping.

Knife Care

Following proper care and maintenance will help prolong the life of your knife and ensure excellent performance.

  • Always keep your knife dry and clean!
  • Hand wash with warm soapy water. No abrasive sponges.
  • Never put your knife in the dishwasher or leave it soaking in water.
  • Dry your knife completely using an absorbent towel. We find paper towels work the best.

Important Information: All stainless steel contains some level of carbon, which is important for sharpness and performance. Because of this, light hueing can develop on stainless steel if not cleaned and dried properly.

Sharpening

A sharp knife is always safer than a dull knife.

When when your knife starts to feel dull, its time to have it sharpened. Learn more about knife sharpening for Town Cutler knives.

3" Bird's Beak Knife

This knife is known as the bird's beak knife, a name that aptly describes its small, curved blade resembling a bird's beak. Similar to a paring knife in size, it features a compact three-inch blade. However, its diminutive size belies its remarkable utility. It's important to exercise caution, though, as it is exceptionally sharp.

What is a bird beak knife used for?

The Town Cutler bird's beak knife is the preferred choice for peeling fruits and vegetables, especially when dealing with items like lemons, potatoes, apples, peaches, and ginger. Its exceptionally sharp, curved blade allows for precise close cuts to the peel or rind, resulting in minimal waste and maximal fruit or vegetable yield. With practice, it proves to be more efficient than a traditional vegetable peeler, significantly speeding up the peeling process.
