Keep your edge in the kitchen. It’s easier than you think, especially when the J.A. Henckels 8-Inch Chef’s Knife is part of your arsenal. It is good for fruits, vegetables, meats; mincing, slicing, and dicing. This chef’s knife does it all. It’s sure to become your best friend in the kitchen. I love a good sharp knife! I primarily do the cooking in this house and this is a phenomenal piece of cutlery!
