BALANCE Most knives should balance near the front of the handle. If it doesn't, you'll end up with doing more work at the wrist to keep the knife in control, which will tire you out. The blade should be full tang which means that the blade continues all the way to the end of the handle, giving it a better connection to the handle while improving the balance. In knives with a full tang it goes all the way through the handle. This improves stability, control, and durability. Cheaper knives with partial tangs will have the handle break off over time.yes, we are full tang. HEAVY Knives for slicing should be fairly heavy. They shouldn't be cleaver-heavy, but you want the weight of the knife to do the work, and not have to be pressing forward with your wrist as you slice. yes,we are heavy . Care and Sharpening of this Super Steel knife If you're buying a quality knife, then you ought to be buying quality tools to maintain it. A smooth steel or ceramic sharpening/honing rod is absolutely critical, and costs under $30. The knife should be honed regularly at an angle slightly steeper than the primary bevel. generally daily or before a major task. Regular honing prevents the edge from coming out of alignment and folding over. Cheap and grooved butcher's steels can rapidly worsen a knife, by chipping it away with their coarse surface. When the knife becomes dull enough that honing won't restore it, after a year or two, get the knife sharpened by a professional, or invest in a professional-grade sharpening system.
