If you prefer a chef’s knife that is especially lightweight and nimble, the Shun Classic Blonde 6-in. Chef’s Knife is a perfectly beautiful choice. Like all chef's knives, this is an all-purpose blade suited for a variety of cutting tasks. The 6-in. length is ideal for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. Yet many cooks prefer this smaller size for everything because it is so easy to use. The blade is wide enough for good knuckle clearance on the cutting board and makes it simple to transfer cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, this smaller knife can even be "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.
