While kitchens knives do not make a cook, they can certainly make things much easier. There are many good and even exceptional knives in this world. This happens to be one of the accoutrements of the cooking world where opinions are wide and varied. We have used many different brands in our kitchen until we stumbled across Global knives. After that, for us, the knife question was settled on the topic of luxury cutlery. I must warn you, they are not what you call classic in looks, at least not when you compare them to the classic heavy handled German knives that so many chiefs love.
A good knife handle must be light, strong and be comfortable for the user to hold. 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.
Using knives is an essential part of daily food preparation. But few cooks know the different parts of a knife and how they contribute to longevity of a knife. A kitchen knife has two essential parts. Understanding how the construction and component materials make a difference in durability of the knife is very important when choosing knives for the kitchen.
