Chef Knife size considerations?

VACluny | Jan 2, 2009 07:36 AM

I have a wonderful 8" Chefs knife that I absolutely adore and want to get another one so that my husband will quit using mine! (it's a Kramer, had it three years now. It's wonderful, but took this long to save up for another!).

I'm trying to decide what size to get and suddenly realized that I don't really know the advantages of the 8" over the 10" or the 6". Is it strictly personal preference? I ordered the 8" we have now, because it was the middle size and it has really served us well. It's quite long and I'm almost a bit scared of the 10" although Hubby probably wouldn't be.

I can't help but wonder if would be a good idea to have the smaller one though? Seems silly to get another 8".

What do you all think?
