Which Knife Should You Use?

By on January 25, 2018

Let’s talk knives.

Hopefully you’ve made the wise investment in a set of quality knives.  While you can spend less (sometimes considerably less), the difference between a high quality blade and a cheap blade is like night and day.  High end knives have a better balance and keep their edge longer.

Having the right tools for the job will make your life easier and your cooking more fun.


Sharp, quality knives will cut better and have far less slippage — which in the end will probably save your fingers.

Just make sure you keep your knives clean and sharp.  I suggest you never run them through the dishwasher — even if the manufacturer says it’s okay.  Hand washing and drying them will ensure that they stay sharper longer.

Store your knives in a knife block, magnetic holder, or a specifically designed drawer insert.  Knives should not be thrown in a utensil drawer.

You should always use a good quality cutting board as well.  Hardwood and plastic are the best.  Do your knives a favor and NEVER cut on glass, granite, marble, or porcelain.
