The most important tool in every kitchen is a high quality chef knife. The length of a chef knife can dictate the tasks it is best used for, but it really comes down to what works best for you.
The 6” chef knife is short and light. Suitable for smaller hands, it is easy to hold and control. Designed for slicing, chopping, mincing and dicing smaller vegetables, fruits and cuts of meat. Great for blocks of cheese.
The 8” chef knife is the most versatile knife in the kitchen. From the thickest cuts of meat, fish and poultry to all vegetable and fruits this knife is the workhorse of the kitchen. The perfectly curved razor sharp edge with contoured handle is designed for slicing, chopping, mincing and dicing with ease. No kitchen should be without it!
