Michael Ruhlman suggests a book about kitchen knives


Michael Ruhlman recommends the book An Edge in the Kitchen. It’s a whole book about kitchen knives!

Chad Ward, a writer based in North Carolina, has written a handsome volume on knives and everything you might want to know about them, and about using them: An Edge in the Kitchen: How to buy them, keep them razor sharp and use them like a pro.  It’s not only filled with good info put together with a good design, the writing is lively as well (“The knives found in most commercial and home kitchens are like supermarket tomatoes–designed more for sturdiness than quality.”).

    I’ve always taken “The Professional Chef’s Knife Kit”, a CIA (Culinary Institute of America) textbook, as my ‘kitchen knife bible’. I’ll check this one out as well.
