My Favorite Chef Knife

We have often heard that a sharp knife is a chef's best friend and as someone who loves to cook, I couldn't agree more! For me, cutting, chopping, slicing, mincing, or shredding the ingredients is as important as boiling, braising, roasting, or baking. Unless your ingredients are in place, no matter what your cooking skills are, you will never be able to achieve the desired texture or look of your final dish. As someone who eats with eyes first, the texture and look of my food is of utmost importance to me. So how do you get that perfect texture? Well the answer is quite simple, choose your knives carefully!

How to choose the right knife for you?

The first thing to understand here is that there is no single perfect knife because one size doesn't fit for all kitchens, so be sure to check your knife before buying. Finding your ideal knife isn't an easy task but trust me you'll know when you find one. The purpose of this article is to help you choose a good chef's knife fit for regular use in a home kitchen. Choosing a knife is similar to choosing a dance partner, so the first thing you want to look for is comfort. Choose a knife that feels comfortable to hold, one that you can use effortlessly. I would put my money on something lightweight, with a comfortable handle to grasp. The next thing to consider is size, an 8-inch chef's knife would be my choice because its neither too small nor too hefty. Honestly, a 10-inch knife would be too intimidating for me and a 6-inch one would be too small to cut bulkier vegetables. The next important quality to consider is balance. This basically means how stable is the knife, if it feels heavier towards the back of the handle or towards the blade, it is not balanced. Using an unbalanced knife can be very cumbersome and unsafe. Finally, the undeniably most important thing when buying stuff is the price. 

I found my perfect match!

I have tried using Chef knives from many different brands some of them although nice were too pricey. The other problem with the costlier knives is the weight, most of these knives are quite heavy for regular use. So basically, my search for the perfect chef knife for everyday use was on, until recently I came across, the Imarku 8-inch Classic Chef's knife

The Imarku 8-inch Chef knife is a multipurpose knife ideal for chopping, dicing, slicing, and also cutting fish or meat off bones. It has a user-friendly, lightweight, ergonomic design that ensures comfort while holding. The walnut finish handle is made from Pakka, a material that is of African origin and is known to resist moisture. Most importantly, the blade is made of high-carbon stainless steel that is glossy and tarnish free. The knife is reasonably priced and comes with different handle designs and colors. Be prepared to get something as good as a professional chef's knife at less than half the price. Don't believe me? Try it!
