The edge of these knives will stay sharp longer and you can use these knives for years if you can maintain them. Keeping your knife sharp gives you cleaner cut, more precise and just the knife cuts alone can make you a pro chef in people’s eyes.
What to look for in a knife?

_The handle should allow you to maintain comfortable grip while cutting without adjusting constantly
_The length of the blade will depends on what you cut. Usually, smaller knives are for more detailed cuts, bigger knives for bigger products. The longer the blade, the harder it is to control.
_The weight of the knife should not make your arm tired after cutting for a long time and you want to feel balance in your hand. Not too much weight on either the blade or the handle, this gives you better control.
