Cooking can be fun unless you have to do lots of cutting. In other words, lots of cutting takes the fun away from cooking. How can a Fusions Damascus Chef knife reduce your workload of cutting?
What kind of knife is suitable for heavy cutting?
Mostly cutting vegetables, herbs and meats take more human effort than any other task in the kitchen. Therefore, this one task can have a significant impact on your cooking. Hence, a knife plays an essential part in reducing the effort and time into heavy cutting.
You should consider five things when you select a chef knife for a heavy workload.
Choose a knife with a thicker spine. In other words, a knife with a thick spine from handle to tip will slide through more quickly than a knife with a thin spine. Hence, the Fusion Damascus Chef Knife has an extra thick spine.
What’s the difference between the rocking and pushing type of cutting?
Rocking is better than pushing. You move a rocking knife up and down when cutting. In contrast, you have to ‘push’ a straight blade. Why? It’s all in the shape of the knife. A rocking knife has a belly. In other words, it’s curved.
In comparison, a pushing blade is straight. While using a rocking knife, you mainly use your wrist. Most of the work is done by the weight of the knife. On the other hand, a pushing knife involves the movement of your whole hand; hence it takes more effort. The Fusion Damascus Chef knife is a rocking knife with a belly. Therefore, it takes less effort to cut with this knife.
Why does Bevel plays a vital role in heavy cutting?
Bevel plays a pivotal role in cutting. It should be of reasonable length. Furthermore, it should be easy to sharpen. The Fusions Damascus Chef Knife has both qualities. Firstly, it has a unique 9-inch bevel (Notice how it’s extended at the handle). Secondly, it’s made from the best 50-55 HRC carbon steel. Therefore, it’s easy to sharpen.
What’s ‘a full tang’ handle?
A full tang handle offers you better control than any other type of handle. Undoubtedly, you should be using a full tang handle if you have to use your chef knife for long hours. So, what’s a full tang handle? It’s the kind of handle in which the blade runs back to the end of the handle. A full tang handle offers you more control; therefore, the knife has a lot less slippage. The Fusions Damascus Chef knife has a carbon steel full tang handle.
A knife should be beautiful, especially when you have to use it for long hours. And that’s precisely what Fusions Damascus Chef knife is! Indeed, we have only one word to say about its raindrop Damascus pattern: It’s mesmerizing!
