There is great information on choosing knives and all sorts of tricks for sharpening and maintaining the edge on your knives.
I highly recommend this book.
You can always push knowledge further, yes I could be (and will be!) reading more and using microscope and so on, but this book was still more than basic, it gave a very good overview to be now ready to read more complicated books or sites and understanding what they are talking about!
I am a beginner, but I am sure professional cooks can find great advices and learn too.
I also liked the way it is written, with some humor, I have been reading it like a roman and could not stop!
Thank you Mr. Ward!
I keep the book on a shelf in my office as a reference and I recommend it to friends who are professionals or just enjoy great knives. As I do more kitchen work now in my own restaurant I have purchased several of the recommended knives with great results.

I got this for my husband and he thinks it great. He learns more from reading than from being shown how to do the cutting. 2 thumbs up!!Published on March 7 2013 by parrots
