Quality Blade

Sealed to the handle for greater sanitation, the high carbon, corrosion resistant Duo-Edge stainless steel blade has an individually ground and honed edge. When cutting meat, the grooves in its granton-edged blade fill with fat and juices that might inhibit a smooth cut, to allow more contact between the meat and the blade.

Ergonomic Grip

Its incredibly comfortable, high-impact handle is unlike any other; built for all-day use, this knife has an ergonomic grip that will stay put in slippery hands or on slick tabletops. Backed by Dexter's Lifetime Guarantee, this knife is a great addition to any kitchen.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

Can this knife be washed in a dishwasher?
No, hand washing with soapy water and sanitizer solution is always recommended. When placed in a dishwasher, the process will often rust and cause damage to the edges of the blade.

The 5 inch utility knife is ideal for slicing, dicing, and chopping smaller fruits and vegetables. The ultra-soft, textured handle allows me to grip it securely and comfortably whether I'm using the traditional pinch grip or the standard grip. It feels comfortable and secure in my hand and it gives me excellent control. The unique design positions my hand directly above the food for greater control when I cut and requires much less effort. With Duo-Glide's new way to cut, you'll easily tackle jobs that used to seem monumental. The blade is individually ground and super sharp and the indentations provide a non-stick surface for fast and easy cutting. The curved blade makes cutting scallions quick and easy. Lastly, the wide blade helps to transfer foods from the cutting board to the salad bowl.

    knife handle cuts Dexter russell sharp buy cut Glide cooler
    I love this little blade, but there are a few details that I wish I had known before I made my soule purchase, so I'd like to pass along some observations. Firstly, the grip is fantastic. There's a swell in the middle that not only aligns the blade in the hand, but also ensures firm grip. The santoprene material is tacky even when wet, so when doing things like washing hands between tasks, or trimming meat the knife c status alt in hand. That said, the unusual blade shape is sharp along the bottom edge so choking up into a pinch grip can leave that edge grating the middle finger. It can be learned and maneuvered around, but there is a learning curve required. Also, because of they unique shape, in learning to use the nose one can spicy a few knicks. I have by no means suffered serious injury, but a few thin slices of finger were offered up to the gods of kitchen cutting. Second, minor quibble, but I have no observable benefit from the grantons. This is not the only knife I've bought with grantons promising food release when slicing. Sticky foods stick, non sticky foods don't. Not a big deal, just an observation . Thirdly, the knife arrives reasonably sharp. Sharp enough to shave arm hair, but with work. I set at it with a fine grit wet some stone and within a dozen strokes, I had an edge that made hair dance off my arm. It takes but a few strokes on a honing steel to keep it that sharp. It's not the absolute best edge retention in my collection but it's really excellent in light of the cost. I have certainly spent more and bought worse. My final note is that this knife definitely cuts above its weight class. Whether I'm trimming a ribeye or dicing an onion, this little guy does the job. I like it enough that I will soon be acquiring his bigger brother, only because his smaller size limits some of the bigger cutting tasks I wish he could do. The design and materials are really excellent for this price point and I wouldn't hesitate to reckons the blade to anyone, regardless of their health status. The marketing for this line is directed as those with arthritis or poor grip strength, and while I am disabled, my grip strength isn't affected. Regardless, the weight, balance, and tacky grip are useful for any ability level, and the knife cuts like a dream. Dexter Russell won me over with this excellent budget knife. Read Less Read More
    I love utility knives especially Dexter-Russell brand knives. They are perfectly sized for anyone's hand and sharp, they're also pretty good looking. Non of that informercial trash product here.
    I bought this because I loved my Dexter-Russell paring knife and I wanted to match it. I love this knife. My favorite feature is how the blade extends back and away from the handle. It cuts easily and stays sharp a long, long time. The handle is soft in your palm and firm enough for total control. It's a cool looking knife and will make you cooler too! LOL! I used to have to bring my expensive Japanese Santoku knife to work from home, but I don't need to anymore. We say buy it. Jeff
    This knife I order because I wanted to cut small things like onions and tomatoes. I really like these types of knifes. I also have a big version of this knife and it is AWESOME
    Purchased this knife because of the softer handle and hoping it would be useful for hands developing arthritis. The handle feels comfortable but is definitely a bit shorter than I would prefer. I suspect I would have been happier with the larger chef's knife Duo-Glide. This knife cuts through hard vegetables and chocolate just fine.
    Used the Dexter-Russell 40013 Duo-Glide 5" Utility Knife to cut celery. The blade cuts celery so well. Glad with the purchase. Arrived fast and neatly packaged.
    Pass on this one. Sharp the first time you use it. By the third time, won't even cut a tomato! I will probably buy a sharpening stone just to be able to continue using, but just don't buy this at all. I tried it for the size. Slightly larger than a pairing knife, yet smaller than a chef's knife. Looks nice, but does not remain sharp. Totally disappointed should have bought the brand my neighbor recommended for the same price.
    Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that the knife you purchased has difficulty staying sharp. For a sharper edge, try Mercer's Deba (Utility) Knife.
    after using the 8in dexter - russell glide i had to try the 5in and "wow" still remains ill be replacing all my other chefs with these
