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.

There are a number of mid-range sets that are built to last, and they will last many years if you take care of them correctly. This means cleaning them immediately after use and returning them to their block. Knives that are left dirty are prone to rust and corrosion, and they will not last long in thrown in a drawer with other knives.

High Carbon Stainless Steel knives are ones that have between 0.1% and 1.0% Carbon as well as the needed amount of Chromium. They can be hardened through heat treating and will hold a good edge, requiring knife sharpening much less often. Typically these steels will also contain a combination of Molybdenum and Vanadium. Molybdenum is an element that increases a knife's toughness while Vanadium helps maintain a sharp knife edge for a longer period of time. High Carbon Stainless kitchen knives tend to have thicker blades and be less flexible. These kitchen knives tend to be more expensive as high carbon stainless is more costly to use. Instead of buying an entire knife set buying kitchen knives individually can allow a person to acquire better knives over time. Some examples of High Carbon Stainless Steels are 440-C, ATS-34, VG10, and S30V.

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.
