From chef’s knives to mezzalunas, from dices to chops to juliennes, and through all the basics of butchering meat, sharp knife skills are anything but easy to come by; they require precision, thought and a honed technique, even for everyday cuts into ordinary foods. No matter whether they’re competing in the wilderness on Camp Cutthroat (beginning Wednesday, Aug. 12 at 9|8c) or in the classically evilicious arena, Cutthroat Kitchen chefs ought to display top-notch knife skills, even in the face of diabolical sabotages. Before the Camp competitors pack their duffels for Alton Brown’s outdoor challenges, it’s your turn, fans, to see how your knowledge of knives measures up in the kitchen. Take the quiz below to find out if you’re a Knife Novice, a Sharp Slicer or a Blade Master.
