Dexter 8″ Scalloped Knife. Whether you do most of your cooking in a home or commercial kitchen, you should have a good utility knife on hand, such as our BASICS® 8” Scalloped Utility Knife. Since it is only a little bigger than a paring knife, this knife is great for normal prep tasks like cutting and peeling vegetables. But, the scalloped edge lets it also be perfect for cutting through sandwiches, tough citrus fruits, and home baked loaves of bread. We also have a 6” version for those who would prefer a smaller blade. Imported.
