Chefs or rather experts say that you need four types of knives in your kitchen; a bread knife, paring knife, cook’s knife and an all purpose knife. Other than that, you can also go for stainless steel since its cheaper but unfortunately they get blunt really quickly which will take you a long time to sharpen. Carbon steel is better but more expensive. What makes it expensive is the fact that the metal is hard and doesn’t rust.
Below are some of the kitchen knife sets that you absolutely should have in your kitchen.
