These versatile, everyday knives are ideal for precision work in-hand or on the cutting board.

Buy multi-purpose utility knives
A utility knife is a standard in every kitchen. It is also called a universal knife or utility knife and can be used for quick cooking work. Here, we highlight the features of our utility knives and other tips for using them.
Which features set a utility knife apart?
Most utility knives have a serrated edge so they can be used in a variety of ways. The most frequent uses of a utility knife at a glance:
A utility knife with a serrated blade can be used extremely well as a bread knife. Crusty bread can be cut evenly and crumb-free with the right utility knife.
The serrated blade on most utility knives is ideal for cutting soft vegetables such as tomatoes. The flesh is not squashed when cut.
Cleaning fruit and vegetables
You can easily cut all types of vegetable, such as zucchini or mushrooms, or de-seed fruit and vegetables.
Slice sausage and cheese
Do you need a knife quickly, to cut a piece of cheese or sausage into small slices? Then the utility knife is just the right knife for this job.
The utility knife is, as its name suggests, suitable for general kitchen work to a limited extent. When you need a knife quickly for a small kitchen job, then the utility knife is always handy. But it doesn’t replace specialist knives such as the bread knife, the chef’s knife or the vegetable knife. These kitchen knives are specially designed to meet the needs of working with certain foods.
What’s the right size for a utility knife?
You usually buy a utility knife in the medium length range, between 11 and 13 cm. This has several advantages, as medium-sized knives can be easily held and can be guided precisely.

Our tips for proper knife care
Once you decide on a multi-purpose knife, you want to be able to use it for a long time. Proper cleaning and care make a decisive contribution to this. Check the care instructions to see if it is dishwasher-safe. It’s always best to clean your utility knife under warm water after use. This avoids stubborn dirt and you can quickly use your utility knife again. You should use a wooden or plastic chopping board to preserve the blade.
