The J.A. Henckels Twin Cuisine 8-inch hollow-edge chef's knife is perfect for chopping, dicing, and slicing. Because of its special hollow edge, this knife will break the friction at the cutting edge to ease slicing. The hollow edge allows air between the blade and the item you are slicing, keeping food from sticking to the blade. Like all J.A. Henckels Twin Cuisine knives, this chef's knife is one-piece forged with excellent cutting retention and corrosion resistance, and it sports an exclusive ergonomic handle design.
