Knife skills - we’ve all got them, albeit in varying degrees of dexterity, but not all of us have the knife skills of a true pro, a person who has spent years slicing and dicing different ingredients.
That’s exactly what you see in this next video which shows chefs as they demonstrate their knife skills chopping fish, chicken, vegetables and tofu.
Apparently the first video shows the Chinese chefs in training in front of their master which is probably a good thing as most of them are sweating too much to actually serve the dishes.
The knives they use are all really big but they handle them with the ease and skill of true masters. The reason for using one knife for almost every job is explained in the second English video at the bottom.
The first video shows the skills quickly edited together, below that you can watch the a full documentary in English with an explanation on the different knife skills and dishes they prepare with them.
Take a look - this is a proper bit of knife porn.
