Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Petty Utility & Prep Knife, 5.5-inches : With razor-sharp edge, perfect balance and curved bolster, this Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Petty Utility and Prep Knife is the multi-use essential for in-hand work and cutting board prep. The medium-size blade of this petty utility knife has the functionalities of 3 prep knives in one precision-forged blade. With the strength of a chef's knife to cut, chop, dice, mince and carve, this kitchen knife is a favorite of professional chefs. Premium blade has the precision-edge sharpness of a utility knife to slice meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables. This is the "go to" knife for slicing and delicate intricate work that never rests idle in the drawer. Easily butterfly chicken, shrimp, accordion-cut potatoes or short ribs. Slightly longer than a parer, the petty utility knife is engineered with an innovative blade shape for in-hand peeling, trimming, deveining and detailing. Uniquely curved bolster on this multi-use knife allows clearance from blade heel to cutting board, an attribute not always found in a traditional paring knife. Available only from CHEFS, this kitchen knife features a superior wedge-shaped blade developed by Premiere Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun exclusively for Zwilling J.A. Henckels. This is a one-of-a-kind SIGMAFORGE knife, engineered to reduce hand and wrist stress. Proprietary FRIODUR ice-hardening process produces a double-tempered blade of supreme strength and optimal 57 Rockwell hardness resistant to corrosion. Polished by hand to an exacting edge, with 15 degree angle on each side, this Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Petty Utility Knife ensures the precise, fine cutting-edge sharpness and balanced control you expect from cutlery experts in Germany. Stain- and pit-resistant. Curved bolster contours perfectly to the blade for comfortable grip, safety and support. Full-tang, three-rivet handle for longevity and strength. Hand wash. Made in Germany. Lifetime manufacturer warranty. For nearly three hundred years, the Zwilling Henckels cutlery brand has stood as the world's symbol for legendary quality and superior performance. Founded in Solingen, Germany, the "twin" trademark was registered with the Cutler's Guild in 1731. Today, Zwilling's high standards of craftsmanship and advanced technology create cutting-edge tools.

A new favorite " Go-To " knife for almost any purpose, it's a great size for lots of jobs, and sharp, sharp, sharp - plus its point makes it super versatile - may have to get more of these - would make a great gift for any chef, cook or culinary student, too !

This lovely large crock from Le Creuset's Poterie Collection of stoneware is not only lovely in a truly classic French farmhouse way , it holds so many utensils it's unreal ! We formerly needed up to three utensil holders , now this one can manage the whole job ~ love it and all the great colors ! I recommend adding felt feet to the bottom before use to protect your good countertops !
