Using knives is an essential part of daily food preparation. But few cooks know the different parts of a knife and how they contribute to longevity of a knife. A kitchen knife has two essential parts. Understanding how the construction and component materials make a difference in durability of the knife is very important when choosing knives for the kitchen.
A magnetic strip mounted to a kitchen wall is another knife storage option and the one I personally use. Magnetic strips are simple to clean, can easily accommodate large kitchen knife sets, and this method of storage is extremely efficient in that it saves both counter top and drawer space. I would not recommend it, however, if you have young children or rambunctious pets.
Buy the right mid-range priced kitchen cutlery set and you may not ever have to buy another one. There are a number of mid-range sets that are built to last, and they will last many years if you take care of them correctly. This means cleaning them immediately after use and returning them to their block. Knives that are left dirty are prone to rust and corrosion, and they will not last long in thrown in a drawer with other knives.
