Good, sharp kitchen knives can seriously enhance your cooking prowess. But if you’ve purchased a starter set of blades and have no idea which ones are designed for what task, this handy primer by English knife manufacturing company Robert Welch provides amateur chefs with an easy overview. It lists the names of each cutting tool, briefly explains its purpose, and tells you how it's used.
