Drawer Essentials: What do I look for?
Before buying a knife, be sure to consider these features:
Buy a knife with a high-carbon steel blade. This type of blade is
extremely durable, yet can be easily sharpened and will not rust.
2) Handles are a personal preference. Molded plastic is very sturdy
but can be slippery when wet or oily. Wood handles are great looking
but require a little maintenance.
3) Knife blades come either forged or stamped. Forged blades are
usually better quality and will last longer, but if your budget won’t
allow it, stamped knives are fine. They’re thinner and lighter weight
but can cut vegetables and fish as well as heavier duty forged knives.
4) The most important characteristic of any knife is how it feels
when you hold it. Grip the handle to find one that has a weight and
shape that suits your hand.
