A good knife handle must be light, strong and be comfortable for the user to hold. These features provide a safe and efficient knife handle. The handle has two vertical pieces that cover the extension of the blade of the knife. (the part of the knife between the handle pieces is also called the tang....see below) Each of the two handle pieces has the same horizontal diameter. They cover the extension from the knife blade, which extends partially or completely the length of the handle. A quality kitchen knife tang runs the entire width and length of the handle and can be seen between the handle parts. Rivets hold the blade extension and the handle parts together.
Storing your knives loosely in one of your kitchen drawers is a bad idea, yet many people do exactly that. Doing so poses a danger to anyone who opens the drawer. Your knives can also be damaged while sliding around among the other cutlery and kitchen tools sharing the drawer.
On the other hand, if you want to use your kitchen knives with a little bit of elbow grease, you can. Should you desire them to be balanced and hefty, you can get the German kinds. Most European kitchen knives are all the more sturdier than their Eastern counterparts. There are lots of best quality knives out there that are fully forged. If you want sturdy kitchen knives you should stick to the forged lines which offer premium quality.
