How To Pinch Grip a Chef’s Knife


We’re going to speak to the proper method of holding a chef’s knife. This a forged chef’s knife as you see it has a bolster. And of course the blade is out n front of the bolster and the handle is to the rear. The proper technique to use is to take, and I am right handed, so I am going to wrap these three fingers around the blade, around the handle and the bolster. Take the thumb on the etch, and the index finger over here on the right side. That would be called a pinch grip. As you can see I can pinch the knife or hold by the three fingers, but either way, I am gripping the blade. And that is how we control the blade. That is the chef’s pinch grip.
