Kitchen Knives

The right Knife makes any task easier! There's nothing more vital than selecting the best knife for the job. Your first step is to identify the task you are trying to accomplish, and then choose the right blade. Some blades are suitable for a broad range of jobs while others are designed for more specific tasks. Depending on your hand size, a smaller blade or large one might be more to your liking. You don't want to be intimidated by the blade size. Feel the knife in your hand- the weight and balance should feel easy to wield in your hand. It used to be that all handles were the same, but now manufacturers are changing it up. The handle can determine your decision; find the one that feels the most comfortable to YOU.

There are two ways of manufacturing a knife: stamped or forged. A forged blade is a higher quality knife and normally has a raised bolster, which provides balance to a knife and also holds its edge longer. A stamped knife will generally be lighter, and does not have a raised bolster. We're now seeing some custom, handmade knives being made in the United States, but knives are primarily made in two regions: Europe and Japan. Each has a very different approach to making their blades. Japanese knives are a harder metal (more brittle, with a 60-61 rockwell) with a thinner blade for a more precise cut. They hold their edge longer but can be harder to sharpen; however, when it comes to vegetables you can produce a more perfect slice. German knives are a slightly softer metal (58-59 rockwell), have a thicker spine and are heavier, which provides additional blade strength when breaking down proteins (meats) with bones. Most high-quality blades today have 15% edge on each side while some of the less expensive knives carry a 20% bevel. Faraday's carries a "good, better, best" assortment of kitchen knives all at the best prices, with lots of options on sale.
