I use a thick bladed 9" chefs knife. Always chop hard vegetables with a rocking motion to the knife. Set the point of the knife down to the cutting board, and use this point the pivot point for the knife, rocking the blade up and down. NEVER chop by lifting the knife out of the board and to cut it like an axe, this dull your knife in no time, and it is dangerous, as one slip could relieve the other hand of it with the fingers. **The only exception to this is the use of a blade that must be cut through the bone.
