Top 4 Chef Knives
if you had the opportunity to use a lot of Chef knives. I suggest you this top 4 to cut through shallots, onions carrots…occasionally break down a chicken.
That is what is great about Chef knives, if you only buy one knife, this would be the one I recommend. This style of knife will give you the most versatility. It is why I never I understood utility knives. Why would I buy a smaller version of a chef knife? Instead, just buy one knife that can do all the things you need. Even Alton Brown supports purchasing tools that can perform more than one job in the kitchen.
