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.

If you must store knives in a drawer, the best option I have found for storing knives in a drawer is a knife safe. These blade protectors prevent damage to both the blade and hands when storing knives in a drawer. Some two piece models snap over the blade while some are hinged and more like cases. Most are made of strong plastic and are dishwasher safe.

Inspired by ancient Samurai swords of Japanese lore, Global knives are carefully weighted to have incredible balance in the user's hand. The construction of the knife blade to handle is seamless, which means no grooves or pits for dirt or food particles to get trapped in. The handles of the knives are dimpled to give the user a sure grip. Global knife blades are ground down to a point instead of being beveled like western knives which results in extraordinary and long lasting sharpness.

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.

They are made of molybdenum/vanadium stainless steel and razor sharp (and I mean sharp!). On top of that, the knives are both ice-tempered and resistant to rust or staining. That silly (at first glance) dimpled handle is much more slip resistant than our more traditional knives. One of the advantages of the all in one piece construction is that there is no place for bacteria to hide in the handle or the space between the blade and handle as there is in the traditional construction. Now add a limited lifetime warranty and you have a set of knives which will last for many generations. You will want to hand wash these knives just as you do any other good cutlery. Again, be careful, they are very sharp. They maintain that edge through a lot of use and don't require frequent sharpening.

If you want the more affordable kitchen knives, you can take a look at the origins of the cutlery to trace their manufacturers. Usually some kitchen knives are made in other countries apart from where they are being sold. And of course, it really does help if you buy cutlery that are actually part of a set and are sold during sale seasons. If you want your money to go a long way, you should the more expensive sets at a time when they are priced lower than their original retail value.

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.
