Making the Cut
A good knife is a great tool. It doesn’t have to be expensive, though many are. Here’s what you should look for when choosing a knife.
What’s it made of?
You want a knife made of steel. No other metal is sturdy enough to make a high-quality knife, and ceramic tends to chip over time. While stainless steel is popular because it doesn’t corrode, carbon steel is harder and holds its blade better. As long as you care for it properly (which is easy), a good carbon steel knife should last a lifetime.
