While kitchens knives do not make a cook, they can certainly make things much easier. There are many good and even exceptional knives in this world. This happens to be one of the accoutrements of the cooking world where opinions are wide and varied. We have used many different brands in our kitchen until we stumbled across Global knives. After that, for us, the knife question was settled on the topic of luxury cutlery. I must warn you, they are not what you call classic in looks, at least not when you compare them to the classic heavy handled German knives that so many chiefs love.
A kitchen knife blade has four primary parts. The cutting edge or side that cuts is the most important. It is the business or working section of the knife. It needs to be sharp and its surfaces must be smooth. Many times the blade forms a point or tip at the end. For example, a chef knife usually has such a tip.The side opposite to the cutting side is smooth. This is the spine. of the knife. The heel of the blade is the opposite end from the tip and evolves into the tang. The blade continuation that is between the two parts of the knife handle starts st the heel and is called the tang. To put it another way, the tang is the extension of the knife blade that goes between the handle pieces. When choosing a heavy duty work knife, it is best to select one with a tang that is as wide as the knife blade and extends to the end of the handle.
An in-drawer knife block is another option for storing knives in a drawer. Part drawer organizer and part knife block, drawer knife blocks are fitted with slots to hold knives of varying sizes and lie flat in a drawer. They provide protection and a way to store your knives out of site. The downsides are that they are not a very efficient use of drawer space and may not accommodate all of your knives. If you do not own a lot of knives and drawer space is not an issue, an in drawer knife block may be adequate.
