Prepare the Potato
---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Square off the potato's rounded edges and ends, making cuts parallel to the opposite side of the potato. 2. You may leave one side uncut to use for a grip or handle. 3. Trim as needed to create a rectangular block.

Slice the Potato
---------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Place your middle, ring and pinky fingers around the handle of your knife, with your index finger and thumb around the blade for control. Hold the potato with your other hand by curling your fingers and lightly gripping the top of the potato. Rest your middle finger's knuckle on the blade. 5. Depending on the size you prefer your juliennes, either cut 1/4-inch, 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch slices from the potato. Handle up, back, knife forward and down to slice.
