The Right Blade for Every Purpose

Why Does the Right Blade Matter?

Having the right knife for the task makes food prep effortless. However, it can be overwhelming to know which knife is best for which job. Check out our suggestions below to make sure you're using the correct knife for the job!

The Straight Edge

The straight edge allows a smooth and clean cut. When carving, no fibers are torn out of the meat. This edge can be used for firm and soft foods like meat, vegetables, and fruit.
Straight Edge Example

The Serrated Edge

The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast, crispy bread, and robust vegetables.

The Hollow Edge

When cutting, a hollow edge knife creates air pockets between the blade and ingredients. This prevents the food from sticking to the blade and allows for finer slices. Hollow edge knives are perfect when cutting fruits and vegetables!
