TODCR301: Dicer 3 Paring Knife

TOPS Knives

Now a tradition at TOPS Knives, an employee design contest takes place each year. TOPS asks its employees to design a knife for specific use with some required specs. In 2016, it was a hatchet. In 2017, it was a chef’s knife. And that is how the Dicers were born.

Since you can’t have just one knife in the kitchen, the Dicer 3 Paring knife was the obvious 2nd choice for the Dicer series of knives. The two most used kitchen knives almost anywhere are the chef’s knife and the paring knife. The Dicer 3 has a 3.5” cutting edge with an aggressive pointed tip. It is also made of CPM S35VN steel to provide a quality knife to last a lifetime. The sandwiched Micarta and G10 handle is patterned after the Dicer 8 with the same contouring for maximum comfort while using the knife. The Dicer 3 and Dicer 8 make a great choice if you’re interested in upgrading your current kitchen set.

Great blade, bad handles, horrid sheath
I'd rate this knife as "excellent" if not for the absolutely HORRIBLE sheath and a careless, visibly bad finish of the handles... The full tang construction is solid, sure, however, the handles seam cheap and poorly thought out... The sheath deserves its own special place in the Great Book of Big Mistakes: this is an expensive knife, how could they give it such a poor, cheap sheath? Could have made it out of leather or nylon but they went with kydex and it's really sad because it screams "cheap" and also "no!!!".

Superb Blade!
I own several knives from TOPS but this is quick becoming a favorite. I keep it in the kitchen and it can handle just about anything you throw at it. Slices tomatoes incredibly thin, cuts through meat like its butter, and has an excellent steel that is easy to keep razor sharp using only a good butcher's steel. I would love to make it an EDC but the sheath is the only drawback. Not really made for carry, as it does not come with a belt clip. The kydex sheath itself is a bit thin and flimsy, but does its job keeping the knife in a kitchen drawer. I am considering a custom upgrade for the sheath to make this my permanent EDC. Another winner from TOPS! Get one, you will not be disappointed.
