What type of knife is best for cutting meat?

A chef's knife or a cleaver knife (butcher knife) are the best types of knives for cutting meat. These knives are long and thin, with a sharp, pointed tip and a narrow, flexible blade that can easily slice through cooked meats, such as roast beef or turkey. They are also useful for slicing thin slices of raw meats, such as for making deli sandwiches.

A chef's knife is a versatile tool that can be used for many different kitchen tasks, including cutting and slicing meats.

A cleaver knife, at times very similar to a butcher knife, is a heavy knife with a thick, wide blade that is well-suited for chopping through bone.

How do I know what knife to use in the kitchen?

Here are some general guidelines to help you choose the right knife for the job:

  1. Use a chef's knife for a wide range of tasks, including chopping, dicing, mincing, and slicing.
  2. Use a cleaver knife for chopping through bone.
  3. Use a butcher knife for chopping through bone and other tough materials, splitting poultry or crushing garlic, chopping through thick vegetables, such as squash or pumpkins, and tenderizing meats. 
Use a boning knife for removing bones from cuts of meat, for deboning chicken, fish, and other small cuts of meat, as well as for separating meat from the bone in larger cuts, such as a roast.

Chef vs santoku knife: what are the main differences?

A chef's knife and a santoku knife are both versatile, all-purpose knives that can be used for a wide range of tasks, including chopping, dicing, mincing, and slicing. However, there are some differences between the two:

  1. Size and shape: Chef's knives are typically longer and heavier than santoku knives, with a wider blade and a pointed tip. Santoku knives are shorter and lighter, with a straighter edge and a sheepfoot tip.
  2. Blade: Chef's knives have a wide, sharp blade that tapers to a point, while santoku knives have a thinner, harder blade with a straighter edge and a sheepfoot tip.
  3. Use: Chef's knives are suitable for a wide range of tasks and are a good choice for general-purpose use in the kitchen. Santoku knives are also versatile and are well-suited for slicing and dicing small fruits and vegetables and for preparing sushi and sashimi.

In general, both chef's knives and santoku knives are excellent all-purpose knives and can be used for a wide range of tasks. The choice between the two will depend on personal preference and the specific needs of the user.
