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.
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.
Ask most people, and they will tell you that a knife has a blade and a handle. Usually that is the limit of the information a person has about knife structure. However, knowing a little more helps to choose a good set of knives. The handle of a knife is used for holding and for controlling the knife. Some handles are made from wood. These require careful care and will become damaged, if left soaking in water. There are knife handles that are hand carved. Synthetic materials, even plastics that are heat resistant, are commonly used for handles. Metal handles are also common and provide long life for a handle.
