Is a heavier knife better?

Only if you are strong enough to use it.  Weight is not an indication of the quality of a knife. A heavy kitchen knife will be great for cutting large tough vegetables so you may want to have one weighty blade in your set. It is important that you handle a large selection of knives when you are considering your purchase. Choose the one that has the right amount of weight behind it to suit the way that you cook.
