Absolutely obsessed with my chef knife!

I’m absolutely obsessed with my chef knife. Not only has it been recommended by many people, it is also the best chefs knife anyone would ever. The chef knife that I’m talking about is the Wusthof Classic 8-Inch. I would be really happy if you give this knife a try as I have not look for another chef knife in almost 5 years already.

What I Like

What I really like about the knife is that it has a razor sharp edge that can last for a long time without honing or sharpening it. In the past five years, I’ve only sharpened them about three times at the local sharpening service. It also rust resistant. Sometimes, I forget to dry my knife after washing. Thankfully, the knife’s blade is still in perfect condition and there is no presence of rust at all.

The handles on this knife is also very comfortable to hold on. Imagine peeling through a sack of potatoes without suffering from wrist tension after. I also like the fact that the blade is attached to the handle. It’s much more hygienic. My grandmother loves using my chef knife as she said it gets the job done faster and it doesn’t take much moves to get what she wants. The knife feels well balanced and I think the full bolster helps it achieve this. The knife also won’t feel like it’s going to fly out of your hands.

High Recommendation

I’m really thankful that this chef knife also comes with a lifetime warranty that is great because for the price that I paid, I would be devastated if I had to buy another. This knife is sharp, handle-friendly as well as easy to maintain. What more could you ask for? As I have mentioned above, check out the Wusthof Classic 8-Inch Chef Knife.

How to Shop for Good Quality Cooking Knives

When I am shopping for knives, there is always the question about quality and how much I have to pay for good quality. What I have seen is that you can pay a little amount of money for good quality and you can pay a lot of money for poor quality, hence it is a concern. The purpose for the knife should be the main concern. A professional chef needs to purchase a top quality kitchen knife set and also a large quantity of them. The regular house hold, and mainly a beginner in the kitchen does not need the high quantity of knives but still needs a good set of high quality kitchen cutlery. This is where you don’t need to spend as much money.
The benefit of growing your knife set is that it allows you to experiment with different brands. If you are like me, I like certain brand name knives for certain jobs. There are several stores that will allow you to come in and test out different knife brands before you purchase. Before I purchase anything for my kitchen that requires a substantial outlay of funds, I try to test the product in order to ensure it is what I indeed needed.
When looking at choosing kitchen knives make sure you purchase a knife with a superior blade. The best material for kitchen knife blades is carbon steel, ceramic and titanium in that order. All of these materials hold a sharp edge over a period of time. Ceramic knives are incredibly sharp and easy to clean although a bit fragile. Carbon steel is incredibly durable and withstands a lot of use and abuse however can turn colors over time. Titanium is a great material but often a bit tougher on the pocket book.

There will be advantages and disadvantages to all material used in knives. I do prefer ceramic for paring knives as they do the delicate work wonderfully but when slicing through a big chuck of meat I would take carbon steel every time.
