Pro 12" Cook's Knife by Wusthof
The blade of a cook's knife is the business end that has equipped the kitchen staff of a Medieval German castle or the fast-paced commercial kitchen in today's competitive culinary scene. The legendary, German-made steel of the Wusthof PRO 12" Cook’s Knife is a multi-purpose knife designed to perform well at many differing kitchen tasks, rather than excelling at any one in particular. It can be used for mincing, slicing, and chopping vegetables, slicing meat, and disjointing large cuts.
Over the years of use, career chefs have perfected the "pinch grip" as the safest, most effective technique to maintain control of the blade. Briefly, the pinch grip is a way to hold the knife with the thumb and the index finger on the blade just in front of the finger guard. The middle finger is placed just opposite, on the handle side of the finger guard below the bolster. Those without culinary training often grip the handle, with all four fingers and the thumb gathered underneath. For fine slicing, the handle is raised up and down while the tip remains in contact with the cutting board and the cut object is pushed under the blade.
Since 1814, the Wusthof factory home of Solingen, Germany has evolved from the legendary Medieval sword and dagger bladesmithing history to be a premier high carbon steel cutlery manufacturer. If you are ever in Germany, make sure you visit the Wusthof Knife Factory and the world famous Sword and Blade Museum.
