A 6-inch chef’s knife
Never underestimate the power of using the right tool in the kitchen. Easily avoid slipping, chipping, and accidentally adding your fingers to a meal by using a high-quality chef’s knife.
The sky is practically the limit on how much you can spend on a chef’s knife (Germany’s Nesmuk made one that retailed for about $96,000!), but you can pay under $100 for a great blade from a brand such as Wustof, Henckels or Shun that will last a lifetime with proper care.
A high-quality knife will pay for itself many times over in time and effort saved in the kitchen.
