Shun Ken Onion 5-Inch Utility Knife

A cook is only as good as the tools he uses, that isn’t a real proverb but it honestly should be. These days with shows like Masterchef, Top Chef and all those other generic cooking shows invading our television screens in the form of reality television, we can see the spike in the amount of people inspired to cook at home at an attempt to make fine dining gourmet dishes like the ones they see on those shows.

The problem doesn’t lie with the amount of ingredients or the measurements of the spices and seasoning. A big portion of the time something goes wrong in the kitchen, it is caused by a mistake during the preparation phase. This is largely due to the type of utensils used by the individual, especially when it comes to knives. Many people like to regard knives as a one knife cuts all. When in real fact every knife has its own specific place in the preparation work for cooking.
