Professional knives: maximum endurance and superior quality

Cut like a chef with our professional knives!Just as a magician needs a good magic wand to perform his magic tricks, cooks also need good knives and utensils to be able to perform the best dishes. Especially if cooks do what they do because is their profession, they need to use knives of professional quality that can withstand the exigencies of busy kitchens. The market is full of several beautiful kitchen knives of good quality that are perfect for preparing your daily meals at home, but in order to perform in professional kitchens, the knives need to have something extra. That something extra should make them durable and resistant over time despite being used intensively for several hours during every day of the week. It is simple: what professional cooks need is professional knives. 

You need to be careful though, because the word "professional" is nowadays being used massively in the names of several products just for purposes of marketing. Before choosing a knife, you need to know what differentiates a truly professional knife from the rest, and that involves more than simply looking at the name tag of the knife to see if you can find the word "professional." To help you figure out what defines the professional quality of a knife, the team of MyChefKnives has prepared this text for you:

What makes a professional kitchen knife truly professional?

The best way to differentiate between a common kitchen knife and a professional one is to analyze the characteristics and features that most (if not all) professional knives have in common. These characteristics might not seem so obvious for a home or hobby cook, but if you are chef, a butcher, or a baker, these characteristics are what help you do your job in better and most efficient way.

- Endurance

When you work in a professional kitchen, you certainly do not want a knife with a blade that will break after a couple of usages. You want robustness, strength, and durability, and all that is possible if your knife has high endurance. This is a key feature of any professional knife, because professional knives are often used intensively, meaning that they must "survive" long work days without backing up. 

No kitchen knife or accessory is eternal, but if made with the right materials, it can have long lifespan. For example, the blades of professional knives are often made of top-quality stainless steel with great resistance to corrosion, so there is less risk of the knife becoming useless due to oxidation. When it comes to the handle, most professional knives have handles made of strong and durable synthetic materials of high quality that have hygienc properties and are resistant to strokes. Some of the most used synthetic materials used in handles are polypropylene, POM, and ABS.

- Ergonomic design

Professional cooks use their knives and tools intensively, so their hands are naturally going to become tired of holding the knives for extended periods of time. For that reason, it is important for every professional kitchen knife to have an ergonomic design that can reduce the fatigue of the hand due to the intensive use. In simpler words, a professional knife needs to be comfortable to use, because otherwise, no cook would like to use it during an entire work day.

To determine if a knife has an ergonomic design, it is sometimes not enough to look at it. In fact, it is more important to feel it, because only by holding a knife is that you can know if it has a comfortable and solid grip that would allow you to do your job effectively and efficiently. This is why several professional knives have handles with carefully studied designs that adapt perfectly to the shape of your hand. Others, like the knives from the Fischer Sandvik series, have soft-touch and non-slip surfaces that make the usage of the knife much more pleasant and comfortable.

To cut and deal with big pieces of meat, butchers cannot use the same type of knives that a home cook will use to prepare lunch or supper.
