A bread knife is used for cutting bread or other foods with tough skin or crust and soft interior. A chef knife is for chopping, dicing and slicing. A Santoku is an all-purpose Asian-style knife for slicing and chopping. The hollow grooves in the blade of this hollow-edge Santoku facilitate better release. Use a paring knife for cleaning, paring, peeling and slicing fruits and vegetables. A steak knife is a table knife handy for effortless cutting of meats. For greatest cutting power, use the sharpening steel every other time the knife is used.
