I received a knife set in exchange for this post, however all opinions are 100% my own.
How to Keep Your Knives in Shape
Keeping knives in shape is harder than you thought. I mean, shouldn’t knives automatically stay in shape? What could you possibly need to do to keep them working their best? Well, there are. Keep your knives working correctly with these tips.
Take care of your knives
I can tell you that you will keep your knives lasting longer by using them for what they were made for. Opening paint cans with your knives probably isn’t the best thing. Use knives for cutting things up in your kitchen. If you need a knife for around the house, look at specialty knives.
Invest in a good set of knives
The knives you own are only as good as what you have invested. If you got a set of knives from the Dollar Store, you know the quality you’re going to get. I’d suggest investing in a set like this 21 Piece High Carbon Stainless Steel Knife Set . You can feel like a chef in your own kitchen and have every knife you could ever imagine needing. There are 21 pieces of knives in this set, so truly you pull out what you need. This set of knives comes with everything you could ever need for a set of knives as well. The set has knives for food preparation, shears, poultry shears, fork, and a blade sharpener.
Store your knives correctly
My knives have always lasted better when I store them correctly. Having a good knife block for your knives is always a good idea. They are stored correctly and you don’t have to worry about the knives getting misplaced. This knife set not only comes with all of the knives you see but it also has the following:
- 1pc 6.5” Cleaver
- 1pc 8” Chef’s Knife
- 1pc 7” Santoku Knife
- 1pc 7” Bread Knife
- 1pc 8” Slicer
- 1pc 6” Boning Knife
- 1pc 5” Utility Knife
- 1pc 3” Paring Knife
- 8pcs 4.5” Steak Knives
- 1pc Pair of Shears
- 1pc Pair of Poultry Shears
- 1pc Fork
- 1pc Sharpener
- 1pc Knife Block: rubber wood exterior, pinewood interior
Making it the perfect addition to Liz and Austin’s kitchen to help them on their way as a married couple. Although I will have to order another set soon because Brady was a little more than jealous about the cleaver as well as the knife block and amazing quality of this knife set. Do you have any tips for keeping your knives looking nice? I’d love to hear your tips to add them to the list.
