Tips from the Experts:
When choosing a knife, the most important tool in your kitchen, do not limit yourself to a dollar amount. It is better to buy high quality knives one at a time than a full set of inferior quality. The most important thing other than comfort is the steel. The quality of steel is the determining factor in how well your knife will perform and how long it lasts.
The following factors should also be considered when choosing sharpening tool: high quality, high carbon, forged German stainless steel.
Follow these guidelines and your knives will give you a long life of quality performance. - Mike
