What utility knives can do
A utility knife can carry out a range of functions depending on how exactly it is shaped and ground. Traditional utility knives are typical all-purpose knives, which can be used for a variety of foodstuffs, for example cutting meat, filleting fish or dicing vegetables. Grand Gourmet, Spitzenklasse Plus or Classic Line – the WMF online shop offers you matching utility knives for the different collections.
A wide variety of utility knives
You can also find a number of special knives in this category. A filleting knife is 14 to 16 cm long and its special blade is used to slice meat and fish wafer-thin. Larding knives, however, are available in different lengths. But they also have long and pointed blades to help cut deep into the meat without destroying the fibres in the process. No cooking enthusiast should be without the parer, which is just 7 cm long and has a relatively short, beak-shaped curved blade. This is used to peel round types of fruit and vegetables without too much effort. Boning knives too have a slightly curved blade. They are more than twice as long though, and with their very narrow blades they are used to remove skin and bones from meat.
The WMF ham slicer is particularly long and as such is ideally suited to slicing large pieces of ham. Last but not least no well-stocked kitchen should be without a snack knife. With its soft serrated edge, it is used at the table to cut bread rolls in two, chop tomatoes or spread butter.
