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.
