Never cut your fingers / paring knife

Never cut your fingers
Never cut your fingers

When people use a paring knife, cut fruits and vegetables are often the shape of a sphere or cylinder, but often paring knife blade into contact with the area of fruits and vegetables only 2-3 cm. Commercially available peeler blade length of about 4.5 to 5.5 cm, and therefore users often cut their fingers. o solve this problem, I designed the blade portion is only 3 cm in length, then the blade is fixed to the silicon chip. When people do the peeling action, they will be able to avoid a cut finger, because the contact area of the blade is smaller. Then add in the paring knife sideways skid surface, allowing users to better use.
