Chef Knife

Chef Knife

1. Chef Knife (French Knife)

This is the cooks most important and versatile cutting tool. This all purpose knife is used for a variety of cutting and chopping work, as well as slicing and mincing. The blade is normally 8 to 12 inches long and a few inches wide.

A good Chef Knife in the hands of a skilled cook can be more accurate and faster than a machine.

2. Utility Knife

This smaller, lighter knife is used for light cutting and slicing jobs, often on fruits and vegetables.

The blade is usually 5 or 6 inches long.

3. Bread Knife

For slicing breads, cakes and pastries, a bread knife is used most often in the bakeshop and to cut loaves of crusty bread.

The blade is usually 8 to 10 inches long.
