Utility Knives

Utility kitchen knives, also called all-purpose knives, are some of the most versatile knives you’ll find in the kitchen. They’re a tool that can be put to almost any cutting job, from segmenting grapefruit and fileting fish to chopping raw veg and slicing chicken into strips. You’ll find you use a utility knife on a near daily basis, usually multiple times per day, so it’s not a knife you want to scrimp on. A high-quality utility knife will make short work of any job you put it to, saving you time in the kitchen and making meal prep smooth and easy.

You don’t need us to tell you that a good utility knife is a must have for any kitchen. And you’ll find a fantastic selection of restaurant-quality kitchen utility knives for sale at Lakeland in our kitchen knives collection.

What is a utility knife?

A kitchen utility knife is the most versatile knife you’ll find in a professional knife set. It sits between a paring knife and a chef’s knife in size, usually between 10cm and 15cm (4 and 6 inches) in length. A utility knife has a longer blade than a paring knife, but is smaller and narrower than a chef’s knife, making it easy to use. Most utility knives are not serrated but some do come with serrated blades, allowing them to cut through soft foods like ripe tomatoes.

What is a utility knife used for?

Utility knives are known as all-purpose knives for a reason. With its mid-sized blade, a utility knife can slice, dice and chop with precision. As it’s smaller than a chef’s knife, a utility knife is nimbler and can be put to finer work, like chopping soft fruit. But as it’s larger than a paring knife, it can tackle bigger jobs too, like slicing meat or deftly cutting sandwiches into neat triangles. You don’t need a separate chopping knife or slicing knife if you have a utility blade - think of it as multiple kitchen knives in one.
