What's a Cook's Knife?
A cook knife is all-rounder in the kitchen: the most important piece of basic equipment for every hobby and professional chef, the Cook’s Knife is suitable for most tasks in the kitchen, for the widest variety of cutting and gripping techniques, it makes food prepping a pleasure.
My all time favourite as a professional chef would have to be Wusthof classic cook's knife 20cm as it offers free life time sharpening service and known as one of the most reliable cook knife in a busy kitchen environment.
Wusthof cook knife can be expensive but Wüsthof Gourmet Set of 2 Knives + sharpener is made for the home cooks and is at more affordable price. And they were successful! The Wusthof classic cook's knife 20cm blade seamlessly merges with the handle making them very similar to the knives from the Wüsthof Classic collection. The weight is also lower, which is great for many users prefect for house-wife's as it is not a heavy knive. With the Gourmet collection Wüsthof introduced a kitchen knife collection with an amazing price-quality ratio.
A great Japanese cook knife would have to be Miyabi 5000FCD Gyutoh Knife - 20cm is a general purpose knife for the preparation of larger cuts of meat and vegetables
