The chef's knife is the classic tool and the centrepiece of a professional kitchen. It enables you to master a diverse array of tasks arising in the kitchen. It is ideal for cutting herbs and vegetables, but also for slicing, dicing, mincing and chopping meat and fish. Chef's knives have a slightly curved cutting edge that is ideal for making a rocking cut. One hand grasps the handle and the other stabilises the tip when making a rocking cut. Herbs, for example, are finely chopped with the upward and downward movements of the handle. The knife tip remains on the cutting board. The chef's knife should be present in any kitchen as it is part of an absolute basic range of knifes. It is available with different blade lengths between 16 and 30 cm.
