Gourmet Chef's Vegetable Knife


Wrote Florence Fabricant in last Wednesday's New York Times Dining section, "It may seem like nothing could improve an oldfangled eight-inch chef's knife. But Wüsthof has found a way. Its new, well-balanced Gourmet Chef's vegetable knife has a row of holes near the edge of the blade and, on one side, a thin ridge above them. These features are designed to reduce friction as you attack that cucumber or onion, so the slices fall off onto the cutting board instead of piling up as they stick to the knife. But it's strictly a right-handed utensil, and Norman Kornbleuth, an owner of Broadway Panhandler, which is introducing the knife, said that Wüsthof has no plans for a left-handed version."

Once again us southpaws end up with our noses pressed against the window, fogging up the glass.
