Chef's knives are commonly the most used knife in the kitchen. They're prized for their versatility and durability - used for fine tasks like mincing herbs or cutting brunoise all the way to cutting through chicken cartilage or roughly chopping tough root vegetables. The length makes this knife perfect for chopping, dicing and slicing and the wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board - ensuring less knife related injuries. This is an heirloom knife - one to hand down through the generations.
