The Dexter Russell SofGrip 12″ Cook’s Knife is not here to intimidate. As every knife has its own uses, we want to make sure you have options and the right information when choosing your knife. When considering the 12″ chef knife, make sure its not your only chef knife. Keep an 8″ chef knife on hand for jobs that require more time and precision. The 12″ knife should not be used for extended periods of time due to hand and wrist fatigue. This knife will come in handy for removing backbones, slicing large watermelon in one cut, cutting very large potatoes, cabbage, or squash. Once you get your initial slices down, you can then then switch to your smaller knife to make smaller cuts. We chose to feature the SofGrip for the 12″ blade because we want you to have the most comfort and grip possible when using the 12″ chef knife. This knife is built to last, with its NSF certified blade to handle seal and its high-carbon steel blade. Lastly, you will find yourself sharpening this blade less than chef’s knives you’ve owned in the past with its unique knife edge geometry.
