So, if you're looking to buy a chef's knife online, here are a few tips!
1. Look at the knife image and check the handle. Do you think it looks ergonomically comfortable in your hand? Be careful with rough corners, it can be very painful, cause calluses, and even break the skin.
If you really don't know if it hurts or not and you accidentally get the main knife at an uncomfortable angle, you can sharpen it later. Just cover the blade with cardboard or thick cloth, fasten it to the blade with a vice, and surround the corners.
2. Now it's time to check the statistics. Try to understand the weight of the knife. How much weight do you want to weigh? This is a personal preference. Small hands are not always like light knives, but arthritis fingers usually are.
So if you already have a few kitchen knives or even a few heavier steak knives, hold them in your hand, even slices of cucumber or mushrooms and see how much weight you intend to use.
3. Check the quality of the steel. This is tough because chef knife steel is made of material, but most companies won't tell you what it is. Do you want the simplest answer to steel quality? If this is a well-known brand and the price looks reasonable then it's most likely made of decent steel.
