Santoku, Chef, Paring, Boning, Bread, Steak, Slicing, Honing, Whetstone... this whole world of knives was unknown to me until recently!
Today, I enjoyed the pleasure of cutting beetroot with a santoku vs using a chef's knife. I experienced the kick of knowing that you sharpened your knives well enough to cut tomatoes without even moving it. Diced onion with surgical accuracy.
The right tools can make such a big difference.
