Shop chefs knives online at Top Gear
The boss of the BBQ deserves tools worthy of the position. To make the most of anything that’s not a burger patty or a chop, you need a decent set of knives. The right chefs knives can turn tomato into brunoise, hoki into sashimi, and chuck into eye fillet… Well, maybe we’re exaggerating, but they do make a big difference.
So what exactly are chefs knives? They’re knives of a certain size that are designed for versatility and strength. Generally, the blade is eight inches (20cm) in length. Depending on the origin (French, German, Japanese etc) they have different profiles and features, but a good one should be able to be used for a wide range of tasks from carving up a side of beef to opening a coconut. Also, you’d ideally pick the highest possible quality, built to last through decades of use even in a busy commercial kitchen. In some way, your selection of chefs knives will depend on personal preferences and budget. For example, you may want to reduce the time you spend sharpening, or make sure they stay stain/discolouration free forever (high carbon stainless steel).
If you’re tired of having to buy a new set of knives every couple of years, it might be time to make an investment in a few of these premium chefs knives. NZ wide shipping is available on all models in this range. We recommend adding a sharpening accessory to your order, to keep the blades in perfect condition.
