A Quick Guide To The Types of Kitchen Knives

There are a lot of kitchen knives on offer at Spotlight - here's a quick rundown on the most common you'll see:

  • Vegetable knife: These slender knives have a thin and sharp blade that lets you cut through delicate vegetables without crushing them. While technically a chopping knife, they can also be used to peel fruit and veggies as well.
  • Carving knife: Slice meat to perfection with a sturdy carving knife! These large sharp knives cut through protein easily, although they aren't designed to chop through bone.
  • Santoku knife: This all-rounder knife features a wide, sharp blade with a tip that curves to a point. It's great for use on meat and veggies but is too large for delicate slicing.
  • Chef knife: A chef knife is like a larger version of a santoku knife. Chef knives are big, strong all-rounders everyone should have one of!
  • Paring knife: These small knives are useful for cutting and dicing smaller goods like potatoes and tomatoes, and for mincing garlic and onion.
  • Bread knife: The long blade and wide serrations make bread knives ideal for cutting through a loaf of bread with minimal force. This ensures you get a clean slice, without having to crush the bread!
  • Peeling knife: the curved blade of this knife makes it ideal for peeling fruit and vegetables in a flash.

Individual kitchen knives FAQ

What is a kitchen knife?

A kitchen knife is a sharp kitchen utensil used for chopping, dicing and mincing ingredients. They usually have a stainless steel or carbon steel blade paired with either a plastic or wooden handle, although variations in these exist. Kitchen knives need to be kept sharp in order to continue using them safely.

How to sharpen a kitchen knife

Dull knives can slide off their ingredients and hit your fingers or cutting surface, so keeping them sharp is a must! You can sharpen a kitchen knife in two ways:

  • Use a whetstone: If you use your kitchen knives a lot, using a whetstone is the ideal way to sharpen your knives. Some need to be used wet, so make sure to check which type your whetstone is! You'll be placing the knife at a 45-degree angle to the whetstone, which will be resting on your bench. Drag the knife across the block on both sides to get an even sharpening.
  • Use a pull-through sharpener: Also called v sharpeners, these handheld blocks sit on your table while you pull the knife through them. They often have a 'rough' and a 'fine' slot you can use. Pull the knife fully through the rough slot a few times before moving to the fine slot. When you're done, wash off your knife and it will be ready to go!
