If a kitchen tool is good enough for chef extraordinaire (and our imaginary boyfriend) Anthony Bourdain (he’s pretty picky and opinionated), it’s definitely good enough for us. That’s why we perked up our ears when he mentioned his favorite chef’s knife at the premiere of his latest documentary, Wasted: The Story of Food Waste.
His go-to? The Global Classic Chef’s Knife, which also happens to be a best seller on Amazon ($100).
The eight-inch Japanese-style blade is a lot lighter than the European-style knives that often come in standard knife sets. In other words? Slicing and dicing veggies has never been so easy. The blade also keeps its sharp edge for ages, so you’ll be able to cut meat, veggies, or really anything you want with it, for years to come.
In addition to its many fine qualities, in Anthony’s words, “It has the added attraction of looking really cool.” Yep, he really gets us.
