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.

The amount of Chromium is a debatable point some say 10.5% is enough for a steel to be stainless but when looking at most better quality stainless steels 12% - 14% seems to be the norm. That said Chromium is not the only element crucial to here. The quality of a kitchen knife varies considerably with the type of steel that the knife is made from. Many knives that are simply called stainless contain virtually no Carbon. Carbon is the element that allows steel to be hardened, hard steel will hold an edge better than soft steel thus providing better edge holding. Low Carbon Stainless typically has less than 0.03% Carbon, these tends to be used on inexpensive kitchen knives and other kitchen cutlery. They do not hold a very good edge and require frequent sharpening. Some telltale signs are highly shinny blades, often they are very thin and flexible knives, and commonly have serrated blades such as those seen on a bread knife.

The cutting edge or side that cuts is the most important. It is the business or working section of the knife. It needs to be sharp and its surfaces must be smooth. Many times the blade forms a point or tip at the end. For example, a chef knife usually has such a tip.The side opposite to the cutting side is smooth. This is the spine. of the knife. The heel of the blade is the opposite end from the tip and evolves into the tang. The blade continuation that is between the two parts of the knife handle starts st the heel and is called the tang. To put it another way, the tang is the extension of the knife blade that goes between the handle pieces. When choosing a heavy duty work knife, it is best to select one with a tang that is as wide as the knife blade and extends to the end of the handle.

If you buy a knife set, storage blocks are often included. You can also buy stand alone knife blocks in various sizes. Knife blocks provide safety and convenience, but they take up counter space and can be difficult to clean when necessary. It is important to make sure your knives are clean and dry before you store them in a block. Moisture, dirt and food particles can get stuck in the slots and cleaning the slots is not usually easy though a can of compressed air can help.
