To have some options to compare the knives you should know some general facts about how they are made and what is the difference between various types of knives. Generally, the knives can be divided into several types by material, of which a blade or a handle is made, the actions that knives can perform, profile, type of edge and blade manufacturing. Best kitchen knives usually combine the best qualities that can be provided by manufacturers.

The blade is generally made of steel, but there are also some other materials like titanium, ceramics or plastic. The sorts of steel can also differ. It’s considered that best kitchen knives are made of high-carbon stainless steel because these knives are prevented from rust and save their sharpness for a long time. They are not too weighty and not too light so the balance is good and comfortable for a cook.

What concerns types of manufacturing blades, they can be stamped or forged. Professionals usually prefer the forged ones. The blade can be serrated, that means wavy or saw-like edge of a knife.

The handles also differ by material they are made of. There are wood, plastic, composite and stainless steel handles. The most preferable are plastic or steel ones, though various manufacturers can provide other materials. The design of the handle is very important, as your comfort while cooking depends precisely on it. There are several parts of a handle, like bolster and tang, which influence the balance of the knife.

There’s also such kind of knives as chef’s knives. They are usually wider and universal so that you can use them for any purpose.

So to choose the best kitchen knife we provide the overview of some knife sets and chef’s knives.

After analyzing several kitchen sets and chef’s knives we can say that there are some main characteristics that should be taken into account when choosing a knife:

1) Sharpness of the knife, possibility of resharpening;

2) The form of the handle, the material of which it’s made, its durability and convenience;

3) The length and parameters of the knife, its balance;

The best chef’s knife is Victorinox 46892 Fibrox 3-Piece Chef's Knife Set. A professional cook can’t really deal with only one chef’s knife, so this compact set with help of which you can not only cut and slice, but also peel and do small works, is the best variant.
