What are the Characteristics of a Good Knife?

Material isn’t the only thing you need to pay attention to when looking for a good kitchen knife. Several other factors come into play, from the size of the blade to balance of the knife itself.

Judge it by its size

 

Depending on the type of knife you’re shopping for, the size requirement will shift.

Chef's knife: For a chef’s knife—your go-to blade for chopping vegetables and meat—you want about 8 inches, which makes it universally sized to cut just about anything.

Paring knife: These smaller knives are perfect for precise tasks like deveining shrimp and cutting fruits, and they should be about 3.25 to 4 inches long.

Bread knives: You’ll find the best serrated knives in the 8 to 10 inch range, the ideal size for slicing bread.

 

Watch the weight

A good knife definitely won’t be the lightest item in your kitchen, but it doesn’t have to be the heaviest either. There are differing schools of thought on whether the best knives are heavy or light, but ultimately, it needs to be the right weight for you. You don’t want to purchase a knife that’s too heavy to chop with, so find one that feels comfortable in your hand.

 

Embrace balance

There should be equal weight distribution between the handle and the blade of your knife. If you find a knife that's too heavy in the blade, it will be uncomfortable to use; one too heavy in the grip will deliver uneven and less effective cuts. Hold the knife in your hand before purchasing to ensure its weight distribution is just right.

 

Prioritize comfort

Some high-quality knives are made entirely from steel, from the blade to the handle, and while they look sleek, they aren't always the most comfortable to hold. You’re going to use your kitchen knives on a near daily basis, so make sure you like how the grip feels. Don’t buy one that will leave you in discomfort!
