Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I'm thinking about a Spyderco Spydiechef for a future knife purchase. I have good kitchen knives already, but I thought it might be a good idea to get one of these, so I'll have one good cooking knife that I'm not continually finding dull from the wife abusing it. I only hesitate because they're only 4" blades, which would sell to be of limited usefulness for cooking. My Santoku that I use all the time is 6", and I often feel like IT is too short. These shorter folders must be used more for push-cutting ingredients than slicing, as I usually do. Are these just a trick to try and sell more knives? Or are they useful and fun?
