Clark was super helpful!
5 /5
Clark was very quick with his suggestions and responses. When he did not response soon after he would give the reason for his delay. He obviously took some time to find the best product for me, taking into consideration my price preference. I absolutely enjoyed working with Clark.

Great guy! Personable indeed.

I had no idea how this curated thing was going to work. I took the quiz and after that I was put in a chat and also texts in you accept them. Clark was extremely personable (like talking to a friend) and super informative and even had one of the knives that he recommended to me. Great experience and would recommend to anyone. I did end up purchasing the Forge to Table chef knife which I’m looking forward to using.

I have been trying to research the best safe and quality cookware via the internet. Always skeptical because you don't know what information is real or motivated by communities or other financial reward. Mike and Anne were awesome, super friendly, knowledgeable, funny and the personal video from Anne sealed the deal!

Juju helped me narrow down the type of knives I wanted and came up with a perfect selection for me to choose from. It took the stress and the overwhelming feeling out of the process. I've been looking at new knives off an on for a while now and this helped me finally narrow down what I wanted to get.

Curated Experts Can Help You Find the Best Chef’s Knife for You

Chef’s knives are THE knife everyone who cooks needs. As the name states, it is indeed the boss’ knife. This knife does a lot of cutting tasks that include slicing, dicing, chopping, mincing, and even breaking down different kinds of proteins, should the need arise. It is by far the most-used knife in a kitchen.

In order to pick the right chef’s knife, it is most important to think about the length of the blade. Popular sizes vary between six inches, eight inches, and ten inches. Length is directly related to the weight of the knife, the amount of space you have to work in, and the type of knife applications. A longer knife is heavier, which is great when preparing lots of heavy vegetables for long periods of time. However, it can also be hard to maneuver in a small work area and might get in the way of your cooking. For most people, an eight-inch chef’s knife will cover the majority of cutting needs and facilitate plenty of strength during long cutting sessions.

The next big factor when choosing a chef’s knife is the style. A Western-style chef’s knife will be a bit heavier with a rounder tip—great for creating a rocking motion while cutting. A Japanese-style chef’s knife will be a little lighter in weight with a slimmer tip most fit for a push motion while cutting.

Being unsure about where to begin is very normal and it is part of the journey of creating a solid collection of tools. The chef’s knife you choose will certainly help you realize what other additional knives you will need in your kitchen.
