My 10" cooks knife - when sharp is brilliant for crushing garlic, chopping herbs, "julienning" carrots or celery but my old wooden knife is the best for almost everything else. It slices tomatoes with ease, it peels apples, it chops, it shreds, it slices and it most importantly feels like an extension of my hand. I almost die if I can't find it. I have banned anyone from putting it in the dishwasher and I have spent days hunting it down when it has gone missing. If I go to cook anywhere else I take it before anything else. I have searched every kitchen shop in vain to try to find something to replace it as it has a crack in the handle. In short, I don't know what I will do when it eventually goes to knife heaven!
