We did buy this knife just to see if what the man had said was true. He did not exaggerate. We were hooked. Being lightweight is one thing but the balance of this knife was superb. The design is sleek and modern in appearance but filled with the Japanese tradition of making some of the world's best cutting steel.
Knives used for softer foods do not necessarily need a full width and length tang. High carbon stainless steel is the top choice material for use in making cutlery knife blades. This top grade material keeps its color and is not damaged by acid foods like onions, lemons or tomatoes. Although it is much harder to craft a good cutting edge initially, it lasts much longer on a high carbon stainless steel blade. Materials that have less carbon content, like carbon steel and stainless steel, are also used for good kitchen knives. However, those knives do not last as well as those of high carbon stainless steel.
If you want the more affordable kitchen knives, you can take a look at the origins of the cutlery to trace their manufacturers. Usually some kitchen knives are made in other countries apart from where they are being sold. And of course, it really does help if you buy cutlery that are actually part of a set and are sold during sale seasons. If you want your money to go a long way, you should the more expensive sets at a time when they are priced lower than their original retail value.
