Kitchen knives are the basis of most of your cooking. Whether it’s vegetables, meat, cheese, or anything else you can eat, your kitchen knives will have to handle it. Kitchen knives include steak knives, carving knives, chef’s knives, filet knives, bread knives, cheese knives, santoku knives, and more. Depending on the food you are working with, these knives need to be very sharp and/or very durable. The quality of the knife can often change the quality of the meal.
