If you are looking for new kitchen knife set, it is important to be acquaintance with certain basics like materials used for blades, design etc.

Blade is the main part of a knife and they are made of variety of materials including ceramic, titanium, Molybdenum, Vanadium and stainless steel. Even plastic knives are available. Stainless steel is the most common material. However, low carbon stainless steel blades are prone to rust and discoloration. It is primarily used in cheaper sets.

Weight of the knife is another important factor. However, it is up to the preference of the user. Some people prefer heavier knife while some like lighter knives.

Design plays vital role in choosing your chef’s knife. Knives are of three types – blocked knife, forgedknife or sintered one.

Blocked knives don’t have bolsters and have same thickness. By cutting the blade from single sheet and adding handles, these knives are made.

Sinters have a separate blade that fuse with separate tang. They are less expensive and durable.
