A paring knife has a plain edge blade that is ideal for peeling and other small or intricate work (such as deveining a shrimp, removing the seeds from a jalapeno, or cutting small garnishes). It is designed to be an all-purpose knife, similar to a chef's knife, except smaller.
A utility knife is a medium size knife that can be used for a myriad of tasks (although many chefs will claim that a cook with a chef's knife and a paring knife can achieve these tasks just as well). Serrated Blade knives have a saw-like blade. Serrations make knives ideal for cutting things that are hard on the outside and soft on the inside (such as bread or tomatoes). Such foods might otherwise be squished by a knife with a plain edge blade. However, serrated knives should not be used for everything as they essentially cut by tearing the food.
A Sandwich Knife is perfect for such everyday tasks as slicing cold cuts, or cutting sandwiches, fruits and vegetables.
The chef's knife is an all-purpose knife used for slicing, chopping, dicing, mincing, and many other functions. The blade is curved to allow the cook to rock the knife on the cutting board for a more precise cut.
A Steel is used to hone a knife blade after sharpening or to reinvigorate a blade and extend the life of the last sharpening.
Shears are essentially kitchen scissors, though they can be used for many of the same jobs as knives, such as chopping herbs.
The full edge enables cutting along the whole length of the blade. This edge combines Japanese and European cutting culture.
