“Le Chien” knife
This has to be the ultimate all rounder knife: Use it to prep with or as a dinner knife. Serrated blade and wait for it – “a full tang” so the metal of the blade runs all the way through the handle so it's nice and strong.
Thiers Issard is a French blade maker since 1884 and they are very proud of their “Le Chien” knife.
It's kinda crazy-looking in that it has an ornate handle of a very traditional design, beautifully crafted in….plastic.
It'll be your best friend in your kitchen drawer, you mark my words.
