Knives are handheld cutting tools that are used to portion and prepare food ingredients. Cutlery such as knives should always be properly sharpened to avoid kitchen accidents (knives should cut clean, not slide off), properly stored (better sheathed in a wood block rather than getting damage knocking against other metal utensils in an overstuffed drawer). Knives should also be used for their intended purpose.
