A palette knife is useful for moving small items without breaking them, or lifting up pastry without making a hole in it.

This piece of utensil is often overlooked but is a great help when you need to handle very delicate preparations or to plate a dish like a great chef.

Palette knives are also very useful for cake decorating activities like frosting a cake.

Some palette knives items present a wider blade which is intended for moving and turning fish without breaking its fragile flesh because of cooking.
