What makes a good chef knife?
When determining what makes a good chef knife, keep in mind that the best product is the one that suits your individual preferences and needs. However, you should also consider the weight of the knife, the size, and the balance the knife has in your hand.
Chef knife uses
Chef knife uses include chopping vegetables for soup, slicing fruit for pies and tarts, mincing herbs, and cutting meat for salads and entrees once it comes off the grill.
How to correctly hold a chef’s knife
To correctly hold a chef knife, grip the handle towards the blade with your thumb and index finger on opposite sides. Your other three fingers should loosely grip the finger guard.
How do you use a chef knife?
To use a chef knife, hold the food item steady with your non-knife, guiding hand. Then, use the tip of the knife as a fulcrum and rock it back and forth across the item, so the knife never leaves the cutting board.
