Learn About Professional Chef Knives
There’s a chef knife for every kitchen and budget. Well-cared for, a professional chef knife makes food prep more efficient and helps chefs work. Each style is specifically designed for various prep work. The type of edge and the edge shape differs between knives and knife manufacturers. Granton edges have hollows that help prevent wet ingredients from sticking to the knife- a great choice for prepping meat.
Handle materials range from plastic to wood in various colours and a variety of textures for a more secure grip. From simple and budget-friendly chef knives to blades that are functional, works of art that are an investment. It’s important to protect your investment. We have knife sharpeners that keep them sharp and ready for service.
Remember to protect your chef knives with a cutting board that prevents dulling the blade. Our Cutting Board Guide will walk you through cutting board materials and features.
With so many options, from top sellers like Zwilling, Dexter, F. Dick, Victorinox and Mercer, it’d be hard to choose. Thankfully, we broke it down for you in our Commercial Chef and Kitchen Knife Buying Guide.
