Is a tournee knife the same as a Birds Peak? How useful would you say it is? Thanks
They look pretty close, to me. As for usefulness: how much garnishing work do you do? How often do you need to tournee vegs? If all you're doing is fluting mushrooms, I wouldn't bother with one. But if you have to make lots of those darned little 7-sided footballs, yeah, it's really good to have.
I believe the terminology needs to be distinguished. You use a Bird's Peak knife to to make a tournee cut.

As with any quality tool, it will certainly make your job easier if you can justify the cost against how much use you would get out of it.
