The peeling knife is well suited for intricate tasks, such as peeling smaller fruits and vegetables, deveining shrimp and creating delicate garnishes. Another unique knife in the set is the tomato knife. This knife has a serrated edge and fork tip. The serrated blade can slide through the tomato without damaging the interior of the food. The forked tip can pick up the thinly sliced tomato. The tomato knife can be used to cut citrus fruits or other small fruits and vegetables.
