Why buy a Chef's knife?
Chef's knives are characterized by a series of aspects that make them one of the most appreciated tools by the cook. The first aspect that characterizes chef knives is in fact the shape. This is designed to be able to easily cut at the same time fillet a large number of foods if necessary. What varies a lot in a Chef's knife is the size of the blade. The average length of this type of knife is from 20 to 24 cm. but in some cases, especially if we are talking about professional articles, the size of the blade can reach and exceed 30 cm.

What to consider before buying a Chef's Knife?
There are several aspects that should be taken into consideration when buying a Chef's knife. If you have a specific desire for steel, this can certainly be a parameter, but for daily use there are many other aspects that we recommend taking into consideration.
One of the aspects that is often underestimated when comparing different models of chef's knives is forging. What do we mean by forged knife? When we talk about a forged knife we refer to a knife that from the tip to the handle is the result of a single piece of steel. This type of knives offers better balance and therefore greater cutting precision, but at the same time they are also heavier.
There are several aspects that can vary in a chef's knife depending on the origin. Today the shape of this knife is in fact often made not only by Western companies, but also by brands of Asian origin and in this case it often happens that the typical characteristics of the European chef's knife are less. The absence of some aspects is obviously not to be considered a bad thing, but they must be taken into consideration if you are used to using a chef's knife with classic Western shapes. In this sense, among the aspects that can vary most depending on the origin we remember the angle of the wire, but above all the presence or absence of the protective neck at the end of the blade and at the beginning of the handle. This protective element in knives of oriental origin is in fact often absent because traditionally Asian the knife is sharpened on stone and the edge if present prevents it from sharpening in this way.
