I suggest you purchase individual knives rather than selecting a set. If you do select a set, consider what types of knives are included because many times sets will include some knives that you will not use often. It may be hard to find a set where all the knives have the right fit for you. You may be better off purchasing fewer knives and selecting those of better quality that will fit your needs better. Your first set of knives must include the four following items: chef's knife, pairing knife, utility knife and a serrated/bread knife. These knives should take care of most of the basic cutting task.

If you’ve already collected the must-have basic kitchen knives, feel free to add more specialized knives as your budget allows. Before purchasing a knife, be sure to understand its features to ensure it will perform the tasks desired and the sales rep can surely help you with your purchase. Be sure to pick up the knife and see how it feels in your hand. It should be comfortable to grasp and it should feel balanced, that’s your sign of safety when you use it at home. A heavy knife will require less effort when slicing and chopping. Consider the type of blade and blade edge the knife has and the care and maintenance involved. Some blades will need sharpening more often than others and some will need professional sharpening because of the type of blade edge they have.
