Kiwi Knife Questions

JVHcook | Jul 14, 2011 06:55 AM

Hi everyone.
I am looking to buy some new Kiwi knives, after hearing all the rave about them and I had a few questions. First, this is where I will buying the knives from:

Looking at their selection, my first question was would you recommend the plastic or wood handles for the knives? I don't really care about how they look, so if the plastic handle would be just as easy to use and of the same quality, I would rather buy plastic for easier cleaning.
Also, I am new to these kinds of knife, so after some research would I be correct to say that if I want to buy a few (why not because of the price?) should I buy a Thai Cleaver for everyday chopping (not bones), a fruit knife as a sort of paring knife, and the set of 3 plastic knives? Of the set of 3 plastic knives I figure the chef's knife would serve the same purpose as the cleaver, just as a different style to see which I prefer, and then the meat knives would be used for cutting meat (would these be suitable for cutting a small bone)?

Thanks for any advice, I tried to find out as much as I could about these knife styles online, but there wasn't as much as I had hoped for. I just want to be sure I am using the correct knives for their intended purposes.
