The next knife in the Knife Knowledge series (See Part 1 and Part 2) is not a common one. It is the Spreader Knife. In fact, I got this knife as a gift and it laid in my drawer for months before a friend told me what it was. Now, I LOVE this one! If you love sandwiches or bagels, you will really like this knife.

The spreader knife has a serrated edge on one side and a curved, wide, flexible blade which makes it perfect for smearing whatever you like. Here are some tips on how to use your Spreader Knife.

 

How to hold your Spreader Knife

For the best control, hold it high up on the handle (close to the blade). Place your index finger along the top edge of the blade. Your other fingers should fold around the handle. Your grip should be firm, but not too tight.

Uses for your Spreader Knife

This specialty knife can be quite versatile. The wide, flat blade can be used to spread anything you can imagine, peanut butter, jam, butter, mayonnaise, mustard, or cream cheese.

Use the serrated edge for slicing. The spreader knife’s unique serrated edge is great for slicing tomatoes (I love mine sliced super thin and this knife gets the job done easily).

Or just use it to slice your sandwich and cutting open your bagel or muffins.

Other uses include, spreading icing on muffins or cookies, slicing cake or pies, scooping and spreading soft cheeses on bread or crackers.

Buy a Spreader Knife

The best features of a spreader knife include a long handle (about 5″), a flexible blade and a sharp edge. Use a reputable brand, like this one from Wusthof, so you know the quality is good and the knife will last for years!

The Spreader Knife is a fun, versatile kitchen tool. When purchasing one, look for one with a sharp, serrated edge and a handle that is a reasonable length. Another quality I like about mine is that it reaches all the way into the mayonnaise or peanut butter jar to scrape the bottom.
