Many professional chefs would choose a 20cm cooks knife beyond all other knives. it's exactly the right size to cope with all types of vegetable preparation including cutting large root veg, pumpkins, watermelons and cabbages. As cooks knives get longer, the blade gets deeper too this provides more power to cut tough ingredients. The 20cm blade is not so unwieldy that you wouldn't be able to perform delicate slicing and dicing with ease. The hollows ground into the face of the blade create pockets of air which help prevent thin slices of food from sticking to the blade. This is called a Granton edge. The reduction in friction between the knife and the food means that the blade will glide through the food with greater ease. This is a great benefit when you are using the knife for fine accurate slicing
This is possibly the most versatile and useful length of cooks knife available, the pocked edge makes it an even more proficient all round performer.
