    How to cut dried tomatoes?

    As I got the impression a lot of kitchen professionals participate in this forum, I hope I may ask them for an advice: what kind of knife do you use when cutting (half)dried tomatoes? The combination of leathery skin, seeds and acidity makes to dull every knife I've tried yet. How do you deal with this?

    Usually I'll julienne through them with a gyuto. I'll just spill them out covering my board and walk the knife through them all. Very efficient.

    +1. You can stick them in the microwave for a few seconds to soften them up a bit.

    Thank you, ThEoRy, and thank you, other contributors, so far. Any idea about the dulling problem?

    Sun drieds are a natural duller of knives. Not much can be done about it that I can think of.
    I usually just stack them up and cut away.
