Use of a chef's knife
The chef's knife - also known as cook's knife - is the most essential of all knives used in the kitchen. It is used for chopping, dicing and mincing of all kind of food.
Chef's knives are available with blade lengths from 6 to 14". An 8" chef's knife is the most used chef's knife by home users; you will find it in almost any starter set. Professional users mostly use a 9 or 10" chef's knife or even larger. The larger size makes it more productive but you also need more experience to handle it (and a bigger cutting board).

The most common cutting techniques are chopping, dicing and mincing (see pictures below).
Chopping and dicing are techniques for making thin slices of e.g. cucumber or mushrooms. The index finger of the left hand is used to guide the knife while the other fingers hold the food. The mincing technique is mostly used to mince fresh herbs like parsley.
