This is a go-to knife that can do almost everything in the kitchen. It has a long blade but positions your hand close to the front of it. You get the capacity to make big cuts, but with a comfortable forward handle, you can do precise cutting too. The handle is designed for both a whole-handle grip and pinching the top of the blade.
The XK1 can become your go-to knife for almost everything. It works for separating and cleaning chicken just as well as chopping onions and potatoes (whole blade stuff). It even works for separating the spines out of kale leaves and halving cherry tomatoes (tip only stuff).
