Knife Drawer Essentials: What do I look for?

Before buying a knife, be sure to consider these features:

AK Home Cooking Solutions1) Buy a knife with a high-carbon steel blade. This type of blade is extremely durable, yet can be easily sharpened and will not rust.

2) Handles are a personal preference. Molded plastic is very sturdy but can be slippery when wet or oily. Wood handles are great looking but require a little maintenance.

3) Knife blades come either forged or stamped. Forged blades are usually better quality and will last longer, but if your budget won’t allow it, stamped knives are fine. They’re thinner and lighter weight but can cut vegetables and fish as well as heavier duty forged knives.

4) The most important characteristic of any knife is how it feels when you hold it. Grip the handle to find one that has a weight and shape that suits your hand.
