  1. Now I know the differences in each knife and what one is best for using in my cooking. Definitely, makes a peeling or slicing easier when we use the correct size and blade in a cooking procedure. I am going to check out your sharpening post as that is a struggle to keep knives sharp.

    1. Hi Maria,
      Yes I love infographics – this is a good one to Pin on Pinterest to keep handy, or print out and have in your kitchen as a quick reference.

  2. Oh this is brilliant! I always wondered which knife was for each task. Now I know which knife to pick when I reach for one in the kitchen. It’s a nice clear chart for me to refer to and I think I might tag my carving knife because I want to get those nice slices every time I cook roast.

  3. My goodness! I was researching for information on a Santoku Knife and I come upon this beautiful and jam-packed with information site. No need to go anywhere else for anything knife related! Thank you, I too pinned your terrific infographic.

  4. Very interesting to know which knife to use on each job of cutting in the kitchen. I have some of these great knives. They make cooking so much easier. They are great. I love them.
