We were hooked. Being lightweight is one thing but the balance of this knife was superb. The design is sleek and modern in appearance but filled with the Japanese tradition of making some of the world's best cutting steel.

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.

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 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.

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.

Do I really need to buy a cookware set? - The first question you should ask yourself is whether you really need a cookware set.

But does a cookware set make everything a little easier? Sure. And if you make a lot dishes, it's very useful.
