There's a saying, a bad workman blames his tools. But a good tool makes a workman great. Take chefs, their main implement is the kitchen knife. It is the only tool that you use in preparing a meal (oh, you don't need a knife to open up your Kraft's Mac and Cheese? Is that even a proper meal tho?) so choosing a good knife is of great import.
There are different knives for different applications—filleting; boning; carving; bread slicing, yadda-yadda. And it takes some understanding of what each of them are used for. Like the all-rounder, the chef's knife, which is known for its long, broad blade that's widest across the heel and tapers to a point, then go for the more specialised knives. And there's the bread knife, which is recognisable by its long, sharp serrated edge.
German tableware manufacturer, WMF, puts out the Kineo knife series that has the backing of 160 years of design heritage. Made in Germany, Kineo knives have the WMF-patented 'Performance Cut', which imbues its blades preternaturally keening, precise and has a long-lasting sharpness to them. You'll find a design language to the knives. WMF Chief Designer, Achim Bölstler says that the looks are inspired by modern architecture, with light lines and edges, as well as, a "certain sensory tension in the surfaces".
The new WMF Kineo knife series includes a chef's knife in two sizes, an all-purpose knife, a bread knife—each with a double-serrated edge. Then, there's a carving knife, vegetable knife, Santoku knife and a Chinese vegetable and meat cleaver. All knives are available for purchase individually or as a set.
WMF Kineo knives retail from SGD79 but currently, the Kineo 6-piece Block Set retails for an introductory price of SGD239 (usual price of SGD569) for a limited time only.
