Things to Consider for Buying a Knife Set
As I already shared some of the best, so, don’t have to waste much time reading the buying consideration. I will be brief in here. But one thing I need to point out is that all our products are complete and meets all the requirement of an ideal knife set. Let’s see what to consider:
Materials(The most important !)
Well, before you decide to buy a knife set, it is crucial to understand that there are different types of knives. Knives are categorized depending on the material used to design their blades. You can either get knives that can be used for general tasks or those that are only used for specific purposes.
Such materials include but are not limited to high-carbon stainless alloys, carbon steel, ceramic, and stainless steel. All these materials have their exciting and disappointing points. Let’s highlight some of them.
Carbon Steel Blades
Simple to sharpen and hold
With longer edge than stainless
Prone to rusting
Excellent for stain
May become dull quicker and can be slightly harder to sharpen.
Signature Stainless Steel Alloys (TURWHO's Knives Choose To Use Japanese AUS-10V )
These knives are often found in Japanese blades. They combine the best of stainless and carbon, but on the downside, they can be quite expensive.
Ceramic knives come with a razor-sharp edge. However, they may chip and break with ease.
Modern knives are either forged or stamped. Forged knives will tend to be expensive, and they are less flexible as compared to stamped knives. A stamped set of knives provide you with excellent performance. They are also available at cost-friendly prices than forged knives.
Any welds or joints will be a sure weak spot, prone to breaking or bending. Single-piece design with either a full tang or three-quarter will provide overall durability and the most exceptional integrity.
The handles can be made from a vast range of materials such as wood, plastic, composite and steel handles. Most people prefer knives with a wooden handle. They are comfortable to hold but require some maintenance as compared to other materials.
Stainless steel and composites provide the best qualities regarding strength and durability. Wood may become rot and soft. Handles made of bones may dry out after some time, becoming brittle.
