Perhaps one of the most important of all cooking utensils is the knife. So, what should you look for when shopping for the best knife (or knife set)? Be sure the knife is made of high carbon stainless steel. The high carbon is for durability and the stainless steel resists rust. When you hold the knife in your hand, make sure it has a good grip and feels balanced. The handle should be riveted to the blade. Luckily, there are several excellent brands that come in a variety of price ranges.
