Dinner knives are an absolute essential addition to the restaurant silverware or hotel silverware collections everywhere. The dinner knife is one piece of cutlery that you must not forget when setting your table. In formal dinners, the dinner knife is placed to the left of the spoons, closer to the plate, if there is a fish course or salad served as a refresher after dinner, the dinner knife will go between the fish knife and salad knife in the place setting. When setting a casual table, the dinner knife is placed to the right as well, though usually it is the only knife. For etiquette’s sake, the knife blade must face inward toward the plate as well.
When selecting the perfect dinner knives for your restaurant supplies, there are many factors you must first consider to reach a decision.
