    im sticking with birds beak paring knife, i dont care whet the french call it :laugh:
  • AZRPAZRP Posts: 10,116
    That one threw me too but I knew it wasn't the other two. -RP
  • 100% here too, what's sad is I have every one of those knives except the curved paring knife.

    Likewise. Googling for Henckel's knives, it appears the only visual difference is a slightly long blade to hand ratio between the two. Otherwise visually very similar.

    I missed two.

    I called the tourne knife a paring knife

    I called the mincing knife a chopping knife

    That's the one i got wrong too. And i agree with you!
  • BobSBobS Posts: 2,485
    I got 100% -- sort of anyway.

    I selected paring knife for the first one, but when I saw the second one was a paring knife too, I went back a page and corrected the first one.

    Also, I guessed on the filet knife and got it right.

    I have them all and then some.
  • I went with "boning" too.
    Even thought the blade looked long for a boning knife....It also looked too heavy to be a filet.
    OH WELL. It was fun.

    Name that Knife!

    Score: 100% (8 out of 8)

    The sad part is not that I knew the names, is that we have two minching and three or more of everything else.

    Me neither. :unsure:
  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 27,574
    But it's a tourne knife :laugh:

  • Yah I got it by elimination. It's not whats normally called a paring knife. That surely don't mean I'm gonna remember what it's called the next time :unsure:.

  • I got all of them right even though I had no idea what a tourne knife was.
  • Carolina QCarolina Q Posts: 8,942
    I got em all, though I have never heard of a tourne knife (and neither has my spellcheck). Also, I have no idea what a paring knife is good for. It is the most worthless knife in my collection.

    Rada has that one, but calls it the Granny knife. I love it for peeling apples.
  • 2Fategghead2Fategghead Posts: 9,623
    It's for cutting pairs of food. :blink:
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 17,990
