Forged knives are among the most expensive knives available because they have the highest quality. The process in which these forged knives are made is what makes it so expensive. The process of forging consists of pouring metal in its molten state into a mold and letting it solidify. Next, it is hammered, heated, and cooled over and over until the desired shape it reached. Forging produces a stronger knife because the metal's grain flow changes in to the shape of the part. Forged knives are a favorite among veteran chefs, so visit Jean's Restaurant Supply and make forged knives a part of your kitchen supplies.
