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.

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.

People generally either have to be really happy or really disappointed in a product to write a review about it. When you consider the fact that people are more likely to complain about something they're not happy with than they are to write a good review, it's obvious these knives are of good quality.

This high-carbon steel is extremely tough and holds its edge well. They will need to be sharpened occasionally, but not as often as some similar knife sets, which need to be sharpened after every use. Anolon knives can be used multiple times before they need to be sharpened, and they sharpen easily. The blades are stain resistant and aren't prone to rust, but as with all knives, you have to make sure they stay clean and dry. They can be washed in the dishwasher, but it's recommended that you hand-wash and dry them so they will last longer.
