Final Verdict

Kitchen utility knives are very special for those who use it regularly. A chef loves his knife as much as he loves his chef’s coat. Poor quality kitchen knives not only affect the quality of the dish but causes accidents as well. You have to put extra force on the cutting object if the blade isn’t sharp enough. While doing so, the edge might slip off the surface and dice your delicate fingers instead. The bolsters in the Henckels knife acts like a finger guard to maximize safety.
