In cooking, a chef knife, or simply a chef's cutlery knife, is an extremely useful cutting tool utilized in all food preparation. The chef's cutlery knife originally was made primarily for large cuts of meat such as meatloaf and chops. While, today it's the primary general-purpose knife for all cooks, it was initially developed for cutting larger cuts of meat. It has grown to become a much-used kitchen knife since its creation and it's still one of the most popular kitchen knives available today.
There are many types of chef knives, but two particular types that are most common in the kitchen world are the carbon steel and the stainless steel. These types of knives are not only sharpened and painted to make them appear like their natural counterparts; they're also made with different handle materials such as wood and metal. The advantage of using these knives is the ease in which you can open and close them. If you've ever had to remove a knife from its sheath after using it, then you know how difficult this can be because you need both hands just to open and close the knife!
As you can see, there are many kinds of chef knives. Some chefs prefer to use dull knives so that they can more quickly focus on other tasks. However, I would recommend choosing your knives with a little bit of research. For example, if you're planning to use the knives in a raw barbeque, then I would personally recommend getting a set of steak knives instead of a basic knife set. Steak knives have a sharper edge and they won't wear down as quickly when you're working in a hot environment.
