Kitchen knives Includes common every day food prep cutting tools like bread knives, carving knives, bird knives, fishing knives, chef knives, cleavers, paring knives and steak knives. This really includes any hand implement used in preparing and especially eating food. A person who makes or sells cutlery is called a cutler, which is exactly why we chose Atlanta Cutlery to be our name back in 1971. We not only carry unique, exotic cutting tools from around the world, but everyday knives used to simply prepare and eat food.
Kitchen knives are more usually known as cutlery, silverware or flatware, where cutlery usually means knives and related cutting instruments. The major items we feature are the knife, fork and spoon. Sometimes we are able to find a tool that actually contains all three utensils in one compact and easy to use package like our picnic set, watermelon knife or Ka-bar hobo. It was not uncommon for the military to issue their own version making eating in the field a much easier chore for soldiers.
Kitchen knives come in all sizes and materials. Although for health reasons and food prep there are specific choices which are better than others. A high grade, surgical stainless steel is a great choice for any need and gaining in popularity are ceramic knives, which don’t pick up any bacteria, are sharp for years and never rust. Of course they are very brittle and can break with intense pressure or dropping onto a hard surface.
Handle material can be equally important and a plastic, stainless steel or rubber grip are found on most. Exotic kitchen knives can use different handle materials to bring a unique and artful touch to the kitchen. Just be sure no matter how to wash them that you dry them fairly quick, no matter the type of steel if water sits on your blade it will have adverse affects over time.
