Chef’s Knives

With the right kitchen tools, a cook at home can feel like a professionally trained chef and create meals to match. Chef knives are indispensable knife storage options. If your space is severely limited, choose a chef's knife with a sheath. A sheath covers the blade while it is not in use, making it safer to store in a drawer or cutting board is just as important as choosing the knife itself, as the material can affect your blade’s lifespan. Chopping on stone and other hard materials causes the blade to dull over time, so softer materials make better options for sharp kitchen knives such as chef’s knives. Wood is a popular option, as it can endure regular chopping and slicing without dulling knives. Wood-fiber composite and synthetic materials are also excellent choices for maintaining sharp blades.
