A kitchen knife is any specialized knife designed for use in culinary food preparation. While much of the work can be done with some common, general-purpose kitchen knives, sometimes a particularly tough cleaver, such as a paring knife, a serrated edge knife, or even some type of bread knife, is needed. This is where a professional kitchen knife can come in handy. The types of knives that are used for this profession normally have a special use, such as cutting through a thick slice of bread.
If you are thinking of buying a kitchen knife of any kind, it would be best to look at several different models before making a purchase. First of all, consider the size of the knife handle as well as what kind of cutting board and other furniture you will use with it. For example, if you will be chopping vegetables on a large cutting board, you will probably need a larger, heavier knife handle than those used for more delicate work, such as slicing cheese. It is also important to think about the strength, and sharpness of the blades, as well as the overall quality of the knife.
Some professional cooks swear by a high-carbon steel or glass block knife set. However, it should also be noted that these handles are often quite hefty. In addition, they tend to scratch easily and they can even stain your clothing if not properly cleaned. These two disadvantages are the reason why high-carbon steel knives are not as popular as they used to be. Still, though, there are some high-carbon steel cutlery brands available made from materials like stainless steel, which are virtually indestructible and easy to clean.
