Storing your knives loosely in one of your kitchen drawers is a bad idea, yet many people do exactly that. Doing so poses a danger to anyone who opens the drawer. Your knives can also be damaged while sliding around among the other cutlery and kitchen tools sharing the drawer.
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.
Knives used for softer foods do not necessarily need a full width and length tang. High carbon stainless steel is the top choice material for use in making cutlery knife blades. This top grade material keeps its color and is not damaged by acid foods like onions, lemons or tomatoes. Although it is much harder to craft a good cutting edge initially, it lasts much longer on a high carbon stainless steel blade. Materials that have less carbon content, like carbon steel and stainless steel, are also used for good kitchen knives. However, those knives do not last as well as those of high carbon stainless steel.
