We work with Wüsthof Knives and recommend these knives in our Knife Skills Class, cooking – and training classes.

Are you using the right knife?

Here are some Wüsthof Tips and Recommendations:


When it comes to slicing, dicing, mincing and chopping fresh veggies, wielding the right knife makes the task easy, efficient and enjoyable. Small vegetable knives perform superbly on small vegetables like cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes and more.


The peeling knife is small and handy with a short, sabre-shaped blade that is good for peeling and cleaning vegetables. The curved blade allows you to peel round vegetables, like potatoes, with extreme precision. As a result, the vitamins which are found just under the skin are left behind. The smooth cutting edge of the peeling knife also makes it ideal for anyone who enjoys decorative knife work.

A paring knife is perfect if you want to finely chop onions, garlic and other vegetables. This is a slim knife with a narrow, straight blade that makes this task very easy. Often considered to be a mini chef’s knife, the small size makes it quick and easy to manipulate.

A cook’s knife is an all-rounder when it comes to vegetable preparation. The wide, curved blade is ideal for slicing julienne strips, bâtonnets or producing a fine dice.

The hollow edge of a Santoku knife ensures that any thin or soft food does not stick to the blade – for example it is excellent for cutting or dicing cucumbers or potatoes. Its wide blade means you can pick up and transport the food directly from the chopping board to the pot or plate.

Chinese cuisine features a wide range of vegetarian dishes. No surprise, then, that the Chinese cook’s knife is perfectly suited for preparing vegetables. The knife is suited to carrying out fine and precise chopping tasks, such as creating julienne strips from ginger, runner beans or carrots.

We proudly recommend and supply Wüsthof knives to our clients.
