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.
First of all, these are lightweight. When I first picked up the "Deba" blade, I was surprised and a little taken back. These were knives that the knife shop had displayed behind glass in a locked cabinet, so I was expecting a different feel. The shop owner laughed and said most people were surprised when they first handled a Global knife, but soon got spoiled and would not use anything else.
Among the vast range of cutlery items available, knives have a prominent position. As they come into frequent use in the kitchen, it is essential that you have good cutting knives. The best kitchen knives are found in makes of stainless steel, ceramic, carbon steel and more. Among them, plastic knives are the most preferred ones in food service stations, as they make the cutting and slicing process simpler, and reduce the risk of accidents. Knives are presently available in a variety of names including butter knife, bread knife, chef's knife, utility knife and more, according to the purpose for which they are used.
