Winemakers’ Prized Knives
Winemakers who cook are as picky about knives as they are about grapes.
J.A. Henckels Twin Pro S 7” Santoku
“I got it to fill a hole in my knife box, but now it’s my favorite.” —Kevin Holt, MacRostie
Kyocera Ceramic 6” Chef’s knife (KC-130 WH)
“A razor-sharp edge means minimal browning of easily oxidizable foods, like pears.” —Jeff Mangahas, Hartford Family
Kasumi 7” Santoku
“Even though it was knocked off a bench and hit the winery owner’s foot, I still like how it keeps a keen edge.” —Blair Walter, Felton Road
