Is it Time for You to Get New Knives?
Think of all the utensils that you have in your kitchen. Now think about how long it’s been since you’ve replaced most of them. You probably get a new set of forks, spoons, and butter knives every couple holiday seasons – but what about your knives. Many households use the same knives for years on end without even thinking about replacing them or sharpening them. For the vast majority, they don’t even notice how dull and useless their current knives are because they are so used to it from using the same ones over the years.
What I suggest to everyone out there is – get yourself a new set of knives. Maybe even spend a little bit more than you typically would, because in this day and age, you really do get what you paid for. It’s time to stop buying the cheap china set from Walmart, and step up to something a bit more artisan. I’m not saying you have to order some special hand-forged work of art from overseas, but maybe indulge in a nice set that is still convenient to purchase.
I personally suggest buying a set of ceramic knives. I say set because if you get just one, you will end up wanting more of them so you might as well just get them all at the same time. The best part is, you can just simply search Google for something like Best Ceramic Knives and there are already guides out there to help you pick the set that best matches your needs, like by prices, or by the reviews that the knives receive.
I myself choose to go with the Rihachan ceramic knife set. As soon as you pick one of them up you can immediately tell the difference from a typical steel blade knife. Ceramic is much lighter which is great for someone that has to wield a knife for long periods of time doing lots of chopping and dicing work in the kitchen for prep.
