Common kitchen knives.

Orange Creme Anglaise - David Lebovitz:
"...when I started at the restaurant, I was told I needed four things: A chef’s knife, a paring knife, a bread knife, and a zester."

- A chef's knife generally has a blade eight inches (20 centimeters) in length and 1 1⁄2 inches (3.8 cm) in width, although individual models range from 6 to 14 inches (15 to 36 centimetres) in length.

- Paring knives are usually between 6 and 10 cm (2½ and 4inches) long.
A paring knife is a small knife with a plain edge blade that is ideal for peeling and other small or intricate work.

- Bread knives are usually between 15 cm and 25 cm (6 and 10 inches).
Serrated knives are able to cut soft bread without crushing it.

- A zester (also, citrus zester or lemon zester) is a kitchen utensil for obtaining zest from lemons and other citrus fruit.
