Best Kitchen Knives – Buying Guide

Here’s what to look for when buying high quality kitchen knives…

  • High-Carbon Stainless Steel – considered the best material for kitchen knives – it’s strong, stainless and durable
  • Forged Knives – tend to be higher priced and higher quality than most knives. They’re sturdier, less flexible and less likely to bend
  • Stamped Knives – less expensive but not as strong as forged knives and are more likely to bend
  • Bolster – helps balance the knife
  • Full Tang –  part of the blade that extends into the handle – it gives the knife balance
  • Riveted Handles – offers strong support and ensures the handles won’t fall off
  • Chef’s Knife – a must for cutting meat
  • Paring Knife – a must for cutting fruits and vegetables
  • Bread Knife – a must for cutting bread
