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.
Global is one of the most popular kitchen knife brands among professional chefs and serious home cooks. Global operates out of Japan and has established one of the most well thought of brands in cutlery. Once you experience using a Global knife it's easy to see why!
If you must store knives in a drawer, the best option I have found for storing knives in a drawer is a knife safe. These blade protectors prevent damage to both the blade and hands when storing knives in a drawer. Some two piece models snap over the blade while some are hinged and more like cases. Most are made of strong plastic and are dishwasher safe.
