Knives are a very personal thing, and making sure you get the right one is very important.

After all they are a dangerous instrument so you need to make sure that you are comfortable and happy using the ones you choose.

A good place to start is to look at our 'must have' knives. These are the ones that we tend to use time and time again, and hopefully will give some useful guidance.

  • Paring knife
  • Cooks (or chefs) knife
  • Bread (serrated) knife
  • Santoku knife with fluted edge

This list is by no means exhaustive and of course there are many other useful knives that we will cover in another post.
