Each Forged In Fire Kitchen Knife has such a high-quality and effective sharp blade because of the way it's made. Every stainless steel blade is hammered right after it comes out of the blacksmith's forge, and the stainless steel it's made of is of the surgical variety, which is often used to construct medical instruments. Following the hammering, each knife's blade is professionally sharpened, so you won't have to sharpen yours before you use it. Its sharpness actually leads to safer use since a super-sharp blade will only cut where you want it to, instead of slipping and making a cut in an undesirable place.
Some kitchen knives are so short and stubby that it's difficult to use them to cut something long or wide, such as a big cut of meat, but not this one. This knife's blade is a full eight inches long, and one end of the blade is just as sharp as the opposite one.
Many knives will dull after a few uses and will need to be sharpened again, but that won't be the case with the Forged In Fire Kitchen Knife. Due to the carefully selected material used to craft it, and its precisely shaped design, it'll remain sharp even after you use it to cut hard food items like frozen food or a large pineapple. As a result, if you make this knife your main kitchen knife, you won't have to keep a knife sharpener on hand or visit a professional knife-sharpening company on a regular basis.
The attractive red handle on the end of each of these knives has been ergonomically designed, which means it'll be comfortable for most users to hold onto as they make cuts. It's not thick enough that you'll have trouble wrapping your hand around it, nor is it thin enough to make the majority of users lose control of their slicing accuracy. The fact that each handle is about half as long as the blade it's attached to, instead of being much shorter, will actually give a user an increased level of control.
The Forged In Fire Kitchen Knife you'll obtain will be marked with a number that's been added by hand, in order to indicate that the knife's a limited edition that won't always be available. If you bring your knife out at dinner parties with friends or your extended family, that might impress your guests!
While this knife's strong enough to cut hard, stubborn food items like a piece of beef that's just been taken out of the freezer, you'll also be able to use it for fruits and veggies. It can be gentle enough that it won't squish or otherwise damage them, even if you're slicing them thinly, and the same goes for eggs or cheese. Although this knife has been designed with food items in mind, if you need to use a sharp knife to cut into a small piece of wood or plastic, using this one is an option.
The Forged In Fire Kitchen Knife is an ideal choice when you need to cut bread. Duller knives may just squish the bread instead of sharply slicing all the way through it, but this knife will make a sharp, precise cut from the top to the bottom of your loaf. You'll also be able to use the stainless steel knife to make attractive, even cuts through hamburger or hot dog buns that don't come pre-cut.
To add to your sharp kitchen knife collection, every one of these knives comes with a companion paring knife. You may choose to use this paring knife instead when you want to cut smaller food items, as its blade is also super-sharp and it has a similar ergonomically designed handle. When you're making an entire meal, a good way to go might be to cut your meat and fish with your larger knife and use your paring knife for vegetables, fruit or dairy items. This will still only give you two knives to wipe down after your meal.
Some knives as sharp as this one come with a blade cover, but this one doesn't. Therefore, if you want to cover your knife's blade while you're not using it, you'll have to create your own cover with plastic, fabric or a similar type of material that's available to you. Buying a cover may be an option, but you might not be able to find one that fits this type of knife perfectly. Covering up the blade of one's kitchen knife perhaps isn't a priority for everyone, but may be important to parents of small children.
On a related note, the Forged In Fire Kitchen Knife isn't one that would be commonly considered safe for children who haven't reached teenagehood to use. Although a sharp blade can be safer for an adult to use than a duller one, a child who doesn't yet understand the mechanics of cutting could severely hurt themselves with this knife's blade. You should even be careful when letting a teenager use this type of knife, and supervise them for at least the first few uses.
If you only have dull kitchen knives around, you might spend hours cutting and re-cutting certain food items to make them look even passably attractive for serving purposes. You might even end up throwing out food that's been cut unattractively and starting the whole food preparation process over from scratch. After you start using the Forged In Fire Kitchen Knife, though, you won't have to waste time like this. This knife will likely make each cut look attractive the first time, every time, and you may end up being able to slice everything up in half the time you'd normally take.
As with all knives, there's a certain way you should hold the handle in order to experience a maximum level of precision and control. When you're using the Forged In Fire Kitchen Knife or the companion paring knife, be sure to hold the handle in your dominant hand, as close to the blade as possible without touching it. If you use your non-dominant hand or hold the tip of the handle closest to you, you'll be giving up some control (and perhaps some accuracy!).

Bought this set plus two more for gifts and couldn't be happier with them. Sharp is vaguely describing this knife. Holds the edge well. Better have a cutting board ready. Great grip cuts evenly.
