I received product from Chef’s Emporium for review purposes.
I have searched for more than forty years for a good kitchen knife. I wanted one that was sharp and would stay sharp. One that would feel good in my hand, and be comfortable to hold while using it to prepare food for cooking in my kitchen. It would also be nice if those knives would also be pleasing to look at. I have found that combination in these Chef’s Works knives from Chef’s Emporium.
Bottom knife shown above is called a 2.5″ Bird Beak Peeler. It is a small kitchen knife that can used for peeling all kinds of fruits and vegetables, coring apples, removing eyes from potatoes, getting the pit out of olives and cherries and much more.
The knife shown on the top is a 3.5″ Paring Knife. It is my favorite knife every since I received it. I use it almost daily for everything in the kitchen. Both knives are very sharp, and came with a blade sheath to protect the blade. I keep them on the knives when they are in the drawer so that I don’t accidently cut my hand when I reach in the drawer.
These knifes rest comfortably in your hand, and have just the right amount of weight. I have had knives in the past that were just too light to be used for much. I love the way these fit and feel in my hand when I am using them.
One other thing I like about these knives is that they are made in such a way that the blade is attached to the handle without a groove or slot where food residue can collect. My old knife was good, but it is made with the slot and I have always worried that it would have germs in it from whatever food bits have accumulated in the crevices.
As you can see in this picture, the knife on the top is my old one. It has that full length slot where the blade is attached to the handle where food and germs can accumulate. The Chef Works knife on the bottom is smooth and does not have any crevices in it. It is made with a seamless polypropylene (POM) handle that fits perfectly to any size hand.
In addition to knives, Chef’s Emporium carries a huge variety of chef’s apparel, hats, and uniforms.
