The Chef Knife

Before you cook anything you’re going to need that one knife that’s the jack of all trades: a chef’s knife. Known as the master chef’s knife in Japan, the kiritsuke 8-inch will be your go-to when it comes to every cooking need: slicing vegetables to deboning proteins (even fish!). While a knife set is great, it can be costly and this one knife will do just about everything for you, and while looking good. It’s made from blue carbon steel and grey PakkaWood for a modern spin on the traditional Japanese knife. Chic!
