No other kitchen tool is more important or personal than your chef’s knife. Whole books have been written about what makes a great knife. I can’t tell you what knife to buy, because it is a very personal decision that depends most importantly on how it feels in your hand. But I will tell you which one I love the most. It is this Global G-2 – 8 inch, 20cm Chef’s Knife. I’ve tried cheating on it several times over the years and I always come back to it.
Treat your knife with respect; it should never go in the dishwasher or the sink, or in a drawer where it can bang against up against other stuff that will dull the edge. When you are done using a knife, wash it by hand and put it in a block or on a MIU France Stainless Steel Magnetic Knife Holder.
