Black Friday Kitchen Knives
The 2017 Black Friday guide for cutlery and kitchen knife sets
Kitchen knives are products that you should not go out and buy on a whim during a Black Friday Kitchen Knife Sale. Quick purchases based only upon the lowest price may result in a set of knives that are low quality. You may also buy more knives that you actually need. There are several questions that should be answered before making your knife purchase.
I created SteelBlue Kitchen to help others discover, research, and select knives and other kitchen products that meet their needs, desires, and budget.

Types of Knives
Not all knives are created equal. Looking at only the price is one way to quickly be disappointed with your purchase. Take a few moments and research the various options so that you can make sure you get the best knives for your needs and budget. In addition to knowing about the options, you should know what knives will meet your specific needs.
What knives do you need?
Knives most commonly come in a set with a knife block. Other than having a good set of steak knives, these sets come with more variety of knives that you actually need. I recommend that you use what I call the Kitchen Knife Trio. This consists of a chef knife, bread knife, and
The chef’s knife is the workhorse of the three. It can be used for a wide range of cuts such as mincing herbs, slicing meats, and chopping vegetables. A good chef’s knife is between 8-10″.
A bread knife has a slightly different blade than the chef’s knife with its
Kitchen Knife Trio
Do your research…pay attention to these areas:
Be sure you are familiar with the blade style. Knife blades are either stamped or forged.
Many of the Black Friday knives have stamped knife blades. A stamped blade is “stamped” or cut out from a large piece of steel. It is then processed to add durability and a sharp cutting edge. (Example: Victorinox Fibrox Chefs Knife) These types of knives are usually lighter in weight and less expensive than forged knives. Don’t be afraid of stamped knives as there are some really some good ones out there at a fraction of the
The other popular style is the forged knife blade. This blade uses a piece of steel that is heated and hammered into the shape of the blade.
There are three main types of handles: wood, stainless steel, and plastic.
Wood handles used to be more popular; however, they are not seen a favorable in commercial restaurants because the wood can harbor bacteria.
Stainless steel handles require little to no maintenance. They are easy to clean and can help balance the knife as compared to wood or plastic. The only concern with stainless steel is the grip can be slippery if gotten wet.
Plastic handles are the most popular for knives today. They are easy and can provide a solid grip
Santoprene handles is another type that can fall under the plastic category. They are made from a blend of synthetic rubber and polypropylene. This provides a really good surface for gripping.
Warranty & Return Policy
The warranty and return policy is an important factor to consider when buying a cutlery on Black Friday. Make sure that you can return your knife set if it does not meet your expectations when you get home. Especially with all the excitement of good deals mixed in with the pressure for high demand during a short amount of time you want to make sure that you are not stuck with a knife that you are not happy about. Look into any fees or shipping costs that may be required by the company to return the item. You don’t want to try and return the knife to only find out that it will cost you the savings you may have gotten from the sale. Also be aware of the warranty for the knife. A company that does not stand behind their product with a big red flag.
