What is the best vegetable knife?

The best vegetable knives have a super-sharp, generous blade that is designed for clean slicing and dicing and perfect for moving veggies from the cutting board to the pan.

What to look for in a vegetable knife?

  • Wide blade
    Substantial enough to cut a wide variety of vegetables with ease. Then use the blade to scoop and transfer food from the cutting board to a bowl or pan.
  • Ergonomic handle
    Universal fit for large or small, left or right hands. Thumb and forefinger lock into place for safety and control. Fatigue-resistant design.
  • Ultra sharp straight edge
    The 30-degree inclusive angle and razor-sharp edge produces smooth slicing and allows you to chop straight through whatever you're cutting rather than using a sawing motion. Cutco straight-edge knives can be maintained and sharpened at home.
  • Full tang
    Provides strength and balance with the blade extending the full length of the handle. The triple rivet construction securely attaches the handle to the blade and the nickel silver rivets will resist pitting and tarnishing. Rivets are also flush with the handle for comfort and durability.
