Kitchen Knives – Why it’s Important to Test Drive Before Buying!

What kind of cooking we do in our kitchen is as individual as the type of cutlery we choose to buy. If you’re out looking to upgrade your kitchen utensils and cutlery, know that as much as you read about a particular brand or model; it’s not the same as test driving the knife for yourself. Why? Take a look at the average size man’s hand compared to that of the average woman as just one example. Hand size and strength will undoubtedly influence the type of knife which feels most comfortable for you to use.

Here’s an example where knife choice is individualistic: A husband and wife are out shopping for a knife set at Sur la Table in San Francisco’s Ferry Plaza building. Which set did they choose? Henckels. The man liked the heft and weight of the Henckels chef’s knife compared to the same 8″ chef knife by Japanese knife maker, Global. Even though they were also comparing a similar quality line of Wusthof knives, the man still preferred the substantial weight and feel to the Henckels. His wife, it appeared, liked the price of the Henckels and went with the opinion of her husband.

The point: would she have chosen the heftier Henckels over the lightweight smaller handle Global knife had she been alone? (We don’t know!) But for you, be sure to choose cutlery based on what feels comfortable and balanced in your hand. Have your own set of knives that you like working with.
