Over the next few weeks, I will be learning a new skill… knife skills.  No, not throwing knives (though that would be fun!).  But, how to properly use kitchen knives.

I am excited to announce that I have been selected to participate in the Chicago Cutlery Ambassador program!

I need this!

I am so deficient in knife skills.  My knowledge of different knives only extends to butter knives, bread knives and steak knives.  Other than that, I have no idea what different knives are used for.

A paring knife… maybe for chopping fruit?

A chef’s knife… for cutting meats or larger fruits such as melons?

I don’t cook much, but I would love to and know that with a better knowledge of different knives and how to use them, I would be able to.

The three knives I received to practice with are all Chicago Cutlery DesignPro Knives.  I have a paring knife, a scalloped bread knife, and a chef’s knife.

I’m looking forward to learning more about each of them in the coming month.  I want to learn the proper way to use each type of knife, and how to cut certain foods more efficiently.

So far I have only used the paring knife.  I used it just yesterday to slice some zucchini.  Not exactly sure if this was the correct knife to use for that job, but that is what I hope to learn.  The knife did wonderfully.  It was easy to hold and sliced through the zucchini like it was butter!

Keep watching, I’ll be hosting a giveaway from Chicago Cutlery in a future post!

How good are you with a knife?  Do you know what the different kinds are used for?
