The Handle

The knife handle comes in many different shapes and is made from a variety of materials. It is usually best to choose a simpler shaped handle, which would be more comfortable to work with for extended periods of time. To choose the right handle, it is best to hold a knife and pick the combination of shape and material that feels best.

Handles may be plastic, natural wood, or resin-impregnated woods. Rosewood, cherry, birch, and maple are a few of the natural woods used. The handle finish is very important also. Visible gaps and seams will cause deterioration and cracking, resulting in a sanitation risk. A good knife will not contain any filler where the blade and the handle meet.
