The WMF Chef's Edition carving knife 20 cm is perfect for cutting thin slices of meat and fish, thanks to its long and low blade. So what is it about this knife that lets it cut thinner slices than a chef's knife, for example? The blade is less than 3 cm high, so slices are less likely to stick to the knife than knives with a higher blade length. When slices stick to the blade, they are also more likely to tear. This small carving knife allows you to cut very thin slices.
