How to test
In choosing some of our kitchen knife, the Fine Cooking test kitchen ran more than two dozen models through this battery of tasks. Therefore, try using your favorite few knives to:
- Mince parsley
- Dice an onion
- Slice winter squash
- Cut carrots into thin strips
- Carve a melon
A chef knife should be sharp right out of the box.
- To evaluate sharpness, first of all try slicing through a sheet of paper.
- A really sharp knife will make a clean, swift cut. (Of course, if you have the opportunity, chop some food, too.)
- Also note the line of the blade because a gentle curve from the tip to the heel can help the knife smoothly rock back and forth during chopping and mincing.
For a substantial knife, its noticeable weight really worked in its favor. Markedly sharp and with just the right blade height, it has a comfortable, nubbly-textured handle that’s easy to grip.
Sharpen Your Knives
Once you have great knives, you want to take good care of them. You don’t need to sharpen your knife as often as you might think, but it does need regular honing.
Another good tip about how to keep the knives sharp is using good chopping blocks. Besides that, to keep them in the special drawer and knife block will help too.
The chopping block you use will affect the sharpness of the knife. The best surface on which cutting can be done is wood chopping clock.
