Pareve knife

Question:

Hi. Maybe you can help me. I cut and peeled a dakon (like a big radish) with a clean dairy knife two days ago and yesterday I peeled and cut up the rest with a pareve knife. Do I have to consider the pareve knife dairy from now on?

 

Answer:

Hello,

You do not have to kasher the pareve knife and you can continue using it as pareve. This is because of a combination of reasons. First of all the milky knife is most probably not used mostly for hot milky things, that are of a kli rishon status, (hot pizza) or lasanga, but for foods that are from a kli sheini or not hot at all. Secondly the knife can be assumed to be aino ben yomo. Additionally it is questionable if the daikon is considered a sharp food in the first place. Adding all of this together, you don’t have to be concerned about the pareve knife becoming milchig.

Best wishes
