Proper knife posture.
Chad’s knife block.
And look, there’s more!
An example of a polymer plastic cutting board. These are cheap enough that you can have several in rotation in your dishwasher. Never cut proteins/meat on the same board as your ready-to-eat foods (vegetables, bread, cheese etc)
The big ugly rubber Sani-Tuff cutting board used by restaurants. These cost about $50 apiece and are nearly indestructible and are very sanitary to use for meat cutting.
One of Chad’s Japanese kitchen knives.
I really liked this one. It looks like something a Klingon would go into battle with.
Kitchen knives of various length. You’ll want to find the one that is most comfortable in your hand.
