Pro Chef Recommended The Best Damascus Steel Chef's Knife  Auckland NZ

 8" Chef’s Knife, also known as a Cook’s Knife, is the most versatile knife in the kitchen and thus the most used blade style by professional chefs. Unlike several kitchen tasks, cutting, chopping, slicing and dicing is still mostly done by hand. While many of us have modernised our kitchens with high-tech toasters, smoothie machines and slow cookers, possibly the most ancient device of all, the knife, remains.

 "There is no object you own that is anything like your kitchen knife," writes Tim Hayward in Knife: The Cult, Craft and Culture of the Cook's Knife. "Every day you pick it up and use it to create and transform. Eight inches of lethally sharp, 'weapons-grade' metal lying on your kitchen table, possessing the same potential for mayhem as a loaded handgun – and yet it is predominantly used to express your love for your family by making their tea."

The chef's knife – or cook's knife – can be used for anything from slicing onions, chopping herbs and crushing garlic to mincing meat. The main style we use today is developed from French and German traditions, though, increasingly, Japanese knives – with thinner blade and curved spine – are popular.  

Unlike other utensils, knives require time and effort (to master the techniques), and love and care (to ensure they remain in top condition for years). Perhaps it's unsurprising they inspire an almost cult-like following.   The most important knife is the all-purpose, versatile, sturdy, roughly eight-inch chef's knife. While manufacturers flog expensive knife sets, all the experts I spoke to recommend forking out (sorry) on a good chef's knife. Knives you might also want include a carving knife, a paring knife and a bread knife. However, you don't need the several iterations of the same blade you get with a set.
