Buying an inexpensive, high-quality knife is not as difficult as it may seem at first glance. Of course, the most expensive option is Chinese stainless steel products. However, these blades will not last very long, will need to be constantly sharpened, and with heavy use, they wear out very quickly and need to be replaced.
Another thing is the Chef knives sets which are made of high carbon steel or zirconium ceramic knives. They are distinguished by the extreme hardness and sharpness of the cutting edge, which is sharpened at an angle of at least 15 degrees. This means that the blade can easily cut through even thick food fibers without much effort on your part. The blade stays sharp for a long time and does not require regular maintenance.
When choosing a budget version of a knife without sacrificing performance, you should prefer models with plastic or polypropylene handles. This material is cheap, simple, light, and durable. These pens are simple in design and can melt when exposed to an open flame. This is where its flaws end. This way, you don’t have to pay for expensive and better materials, you get a product with excellent cutting properties at an affordable price. Similarly, the use of economical packaging in polyethylene or cardboard makes it possible to reduce the cost of the product.
