From time to time I will experiment with new brands of knives; I’m always looking for the perfect cut… that perfect balance in my hand.
I recently purchased two Shun knives from a well- known distributor.
When I go shopping for a new knife, I always get excited- which brand will I choose? Is there a new knife out there that I’m not familiar with? Does it have superpowers? Will I be able to cut 1,000 onions in a single bound? Well, probably not, but I sure am going to have some fun picking out a new model.
One of the most frequent questions I get asked is, “What should I look for when buying a knife?” That’s a loaded question; let me offer a few tips. First of all, most good knives are made of high-carbon stainless steel.
