Geoff Feder is a bonafide knife expert who knows the ins and outs of every type of knife there is. I don’t mean that he can look at every knife and tell you who made it and how much it costs, but he is an expert and he’s about to drop some very useful and practical knowledge on everyone.

In this clip, he goes through various types of kitchen knives from paring knives, boning knives, chef knives, and serrated knives and identifies which ones are cheap and which ones are expensive. Along the way, he explains why makes a knife cheap or expensive and which key elements to look for in knives which may drive the cost up or down. If you’re not super familiar with knives, then this is a great way to learn why each type of kitchen knife is built the way it is:

Sure, if you were going shopping for some new kitchen knives you could just Google ‘best kitchen knives’ and read through a million different articles. But isn’t it better to know what you’re looking for in terms of construction? Now you can go forth into the world and stop buying cheap knives or getting ripped off by purchasing expensive knives that *should* be cheap.
