A kitchen knife is anything but an everyday object. It is meant to be used occasionally and specifically for specific tasks. While much of the work can be done with some generic-sized general-purpose kitchen knives especially a big chef's knife, a kitchen knife set is designed to perform specific tasks. In fact, if you have ever owned a kitchen knife before you know just how difficult it is to keep your kitchen knife sharp. This is not only inconvenient; it's dangerous.
It is important to periodically sharpen your kitchen knives. In fact, sharpen them daily. For general-use kitchen knives, this means sharpening every couple of weeks; however, for chef knives or heavy duty knives, this should be done more often. Also, keep in mind that over-shooting the mark will cause the knife to lose shape and may no longer be as sharp. For the best results, follow the manufacturer's instructions for the exact amount of pressure to apply, as well as the particular type of knife you are using.
When it comes to choosing kitchen knives, it can be overwhelming, even intimidating for beginners. It is important to remember that the key to selecting the right knives is doing what you are naturally predisposed to do: that is, buying a good kitchen knife set, and spending the time maintaining it. By following these steps, you will be sure to find the kitchen knife set that works best for your cooking needs.
