A cook’s knife, also known as a chef’s knife, is a versatile and essential tool used in the kitchen for a variety of tasks. It is a multipurpose knife with a wide, tapered blade typically ranging from 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 centimeters) in length. The blade is curved and usually has a pointed tip.
Cook’s knives are designed to handle various kitchen tasks, such as chopping, slicing, dicing, and mincing. They are suitable for cutting a wide range of ingredients, including vegetables, fruits, herbs, meats, and fish. The curved blade allows for a rocking motion, making it easier to chop and slice efficiently.
