I am an advanced DIY and I am also a chef. While this may look like a "good tip" it makes no mention of how that nice chef's knife will be probably ruined by using it for this purpose. One or two cuts will only dull the blade, a repairable condition. But as it is mentioned the tip is for someone who has to do a lot of cuts the chefs knife will be trash when done. I have chef's knives worth more than $150. I'll stick with the utility knife thank you.
