The three winners earned points for great maneuverability, aesthetics and included extras. The knives stayed sharp through our multitude of tests, and we were big fans of the cushion-grip handles that kept them from slipping, as well as the classic look of the chestnut-stained wood block.

If you’re looking for a complete knife set you’ll be proud of at a price that won’t put a dent in your savings account, this is the clear winner. If you’d like to step things up a few notches, it’s hard to go wrong with the Willing Pro 7-Piece Knife Block Set.

Complete with four knives all forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, the precision-honed blades are extra-sharp, stylish and just feel really nice in your hand. But if you’re looking to make an investment in your kitchen tools, we can’t think of a better place to start.

At first blush, we didn’t think we’d like the poly padded handles, but they were actually extremely comfortable and kept the knives from slipping, even after they had just been hand-washed. Plus, it is exceptionally sharp and took practically zero effort to drag through a few-days-old loaf of crusty bread, take the rind off a cantaloupe or slice berthing pieces from a tender tomato or peach, earning it more points than the Willing or Author versions.

After plenty of chopping, slicing and dicing, the Chicago Cutlery knives remained as sharp as their brand-new counterparts. Also putting Chicago over the top were all the extras: The steak knives performed great while slicing through grilled filet Mignon and the two Santos knives were handy for slicing cheese, mincing garlic and scooping everything off the cutting board.

They’re great for chopping soft or sticky things like meat, veggies, herbs and cheese and for scooping food off your cutting board, thanks to their wide blade.) When you’re seeking out knives that are super sharp, durable, ergonomic and will last a lifetime, we highly suggest you stop and give this standout set a good look.

Heckles, which was founded back in 1731, also takes into account the benefits of both Western and Asian knife design. For example, the chef’s knife blade has a broad curve to allow for a Western-style rocking motion, but a straight back that aligns with the Asian chopping style.

They’re forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, making them harder and sharper than many other models. Lasers are then used to angle the edges of the blades for precision sharpness, and the process seems to have succeeded.

The chef’s knife, which was our favorite from the Willing set, for one, practically dropped through a head of lettuce, and easily sliced through carrots, onions, herbs and more. In fact, it seemed more like a utility knife, and the oversized blade, while very sharp, made it difficult to core a tomato or hull a strawberry.

It’s got history, a classic design and high-tech, high-quality craftsmanship that comes with a lifetime warranty (on workmanship and materials under normal conditions). Thinner than other knives we tested, the handles fit perfectly in a woman’s hand, but our male tester wished they were a smudge more substantial.

It glided through onions, potatoes and tomatoes, took the corn off the cob with ease and sliced through the tough rind of a pineapple like it was nothing. The paring and utility knives fit comfortably into our hands and easily sliced everything we tested them on: limes, oranges, strawberries, carrots, zucchini, radishes, you name it.

The serrated bread knife drew right through our baguette loaves, making us dream of a second career as an apprentice in a French boulangerie. We couldn’t suss out any difference in sharpness by touch, performance chopping up onions, carrots and tomatoes or from the paper test, of which both used and new Author knives made mincemeat.

If you have the money to invest, however, we think the classic, elegant set will not only look like a crown jewel on your kitchen counter, but also continue to dazzle for a lifetime. We spent weeks testing these knife sets, comparing each model by the same criteria, including overall performance, build quality, added accessories and warranty, taking detailed notes on how specific knives functioned based on everything from sharpness and materials to heft and hand-feel to how they looked and the usefulness of any included extras.

We ordered two of each set so that after spending several days slicing and dicing our hearts out, we were able to compare the used knive’s sharpness to their just-out-of-the-box twins. As avid home cooks, we already spend a significant amount of time in the kitchen, but as our dining room table became overtaken with woodblocks filled with knives to test, we quickly found ourselves continually looking for things to chop.

Chef’s knife: This standard tool is made to take on most of the bigger jobs in the kitchen. Its weight makes it easier to chop uploads of ingredients in one go, say, for a big pot of soup or to roast a bounty of potatoes and vegetables.

We tested chopping through meat, onions, carrots, herbs and more, noting the knife’s design, grip, weight and general feel. We noted the ease of drawing the blade through different food items, and also whether the knife glided through paper or snagged.

So, for this knife, we cored and peeled apples and tomatoes, and minced shallots and garlic to evaluate its performance and feel. Too many items to list, including tomatoes, hard cheese, oranges, carrots and salami, were used to test how easily this knife could live up to its name.

We looked at ease of cutting through difficult foods, as well as how thin we could slice something softer, such as a tomato. Forged knives, for example, are typically stronger than stamped, which are cut from a flat metal sheet.

Full tang, meaning the blade extends through the handle, helps create balance and overall heft. Feel: So much of handling a kitchen knife rests on how it feels in your hand, so we paid special attention to the heaviness of the blades and handles, maneuverability, weight distribution and ease of sliding the knives in and out of their blocks.

While we realize taste is subjective, we noted our general reaction to how nice they looked. Build had a maximum of 35 points: quality (15); knife feel (10); room for knuckle clearance (5); appearance (5).

Handcrafted in Semi, Japan, the durable, beautiful and razor-sharp Damascus stainless steel blades had us oohing and aching at their ability to perfectly slice through everything. The paring knife, for instance, was so sharp that as we used it to core a tomato, we found it was shaving skin off our finger from the slightest touch.

Admittedly, we thought the claim that the block’s built-in ceramic sharpeners would work with each use was a gimmick, but we were quickly impressed that the knives really did seem to get sharper every time we chopped and sliced. As far as performance, the all-stainless steel, full-tang knives handled well and felt balanced, although they did feel overly heavy in our hands.

These knives scored lower on performance than most models: They weren’t as sharp, the hollow metal handles felt too light, causing an imbalance, and they tended to get slippery when wet. Besides the value price, it features lightweight, dishwasher-safe stainless steel blades that will cover your cutting needs.

We must admit, when we unboxed this midnight black set noted by the company for its “menacing design,” we were prepared to be underwhelmed. Our aesthetic biases had us thinking these would prove to be more flash than performance, though we know some will dub the highly stylized look as awesome.

The geometric design of the military-grade G10 handles actually fit really comfortably into our hands and their slight texture made slippage a non-issue. The full-tang titanium nitride-coated German steel blades were razored sharp and excellent at chopping and slicing everything we threw at them.

The curved blade of the chef’s knife was helpful in chopping, but its thinness made it feel a bit light. In fact, the heavy handles, paired with thin blades, seemed to affect the balance of the knives.

And, at a rather hefty price, it includes just five knives (chef’s, paring, utility, serrated and Santos) plus a honing steel. Then again, if your home decor is Kylo Men meets Jacques Pepin, put these on your wish list immediately.

If you know a college student who has made the move from their dorm to their first apartment, this colorful set of kitchen knives would make a fine housewarming gift. They’re BPA-free and come with matching sheaths, so they can be easily stored in a drawer, saving precious counter space.

They didn’t feel especially sharp out of the box, our fingers smashed against the cutting board as we chopped and the blades felt heavy compared to the plastic handles, which threw off the balance of the knives in our hands. Its unique, vertical tempered glass block had one family member wrinkling his nose with distaste, two teenagers dubbing it “sick” (a good thing) and one who kept waffling between “so cool” and “trying too hard.” But whether you like the looks of the glass block, no one can argue that these are great knives.

Nice and sharp out of the box, they’re made using high-carbon German steel, a bolster for support and neoprene handles with full tang, offering fairly even weight distribution. With the set, you get five knives : 8-inch chef’s, 8-inch bread, 6-inch boning, 5-inch utility and 3 1/2-inch paring, plus that controversial holder.

Made of honed, stainless steel blades and plastic curved handles with full tang, the chef’s knife was our favorite, although it felt a bit light in the hand. Overall, the knives were sharp out of the box, look nice in their wood block and come with an affordable price tag when on sale (which seems to be most of the time at most retailers).

A quality knife block set eliminates the effort and guesswork involved in researching and picking each blade one by one. All celebrated cutlery brands offer versions of a block set, from German-made Willing and Author to Japan’s Global and Shun.

What’s more, the wooden, glass, and metal stands are not only a safer place to store our slicers but also a gorgeous statement on the countertop. From blade materials to cost to personal cooking style, there are tons of factors to consider when selecting a block set.

So to help you find the best one for your needs, we’ve done the research and combed through thousands of reviews from real shoppers who have tested out these sets for themselves. No matter if you’re looking for a compact collection for small spaces or a professional-level block filled with beautiful blades, these best -selling options have near-perfect ratings and rave reviews describing why they’re so great.

Then get ready to revel in the ease of chopping, slicing, and dicing in the kitchen with your new collection of blades. The people have spoken: With more than 7,000 reviews and a 4.7-star rating on Amazon, this Cuisinart collection is the best -rated block set we found.

Shoppers love and respect the brand, which made its name by introducing the world to food processors back in the ’70s, but the high carbon stainless steel set stands on its own merits. Designed with hollow handles and precision-tapered ground blades, the knives are lightweight and easy to hold.

The sturdy, streamlined block contains 15 pieces, including six steak knives, kitchen shears, and a 7-inch Santos knife. Cooks of all stripes rave about this Cuisinart block, with some saying it’s a great step up from entry-level sets.

They’re designed with a full tang and taper-ground edges for extra stability and feature easy-grip Hubbard handles that won’t slip when wet. But don’t let the low price fool you; the knives are made from professional-quality stainless steel and feature a full bolster to protect fingers while slicing and dicing.

The set boasts a wide variety of blades, like a 6-inch boning knife for breaking down poultry, a 7-inch Santos for mincing, and eight micro-serrated table knives for slicing steaks. The AmazonBasics Premium Block Set is so popular that it’s earned an excellent 4.6-star rating from more than 2,300 reviewers who say it’s durable and a great price.

Designed by the first Master Blade smith to specialize in kitchen cutlery, the collection is a true blend of Eastern and Western craftsmanship. Each of the ice-hardened blades is formed from a powerful core of FC61 steel that is then covered in 100 layers of nickel and stainless Damascus.

Additionally, they feature comfortable D-shaped Lakewood handles outfitted with a decorative pin handcrafted in Kramer’s Washington workshop. Reviewers on the manufacturer’s site gush over the set’s beauty and balance, saying it is an heirloom that will last generations.

“The one-of-a-kind Damascus detail on the incredibly sharp blades paired with the unique comfortable handles are like no other.” As one of the largest and oldest manufacturers of cutlery and cookware, Willing is famous for its classic designs and razor-sharp edges.

Part of the brand’s success comes from its proprietary Sigma forge process, in which each blade is precision-forged from a single piece of ice-hardened stainless steel. This block set is part of Willing's Four-Star line, which was designed in collaboration with professional chefs to bring expert-level tools into home kitchens.

The German-made knives also have virtually indestructible handles with just enough texture to guarantee a stable grip. One drawback of many block sets is that the beautiful blades are sheathed inside solid wood.

The sleek stand is pared down to the bare essentials, giving teasing looks at the gorgeous blades inside. Made from high-alloy Swedish steel, the full-tang blades go through a multi-stage heating treatment to ensure stability and durable, keen edges.

While slightly softer than its Japanese counterpart, it holds its edge longer and is easy to sharpen. That makes the Western-style knives ideal for heavy-duty tasks like splitting bone-in chicken breasts or hacking through a squash.

Outfitted with five hand-honed high-carbon steel blades and precisely balanced handles, the knives undergo the brand’s unique sharpening process for an even longer-lasting edge. This Author block set is popular with Amazon shoppers, earning a 4.8-star rating and reviews saying how sharp and well-balanced its knives are.

“We never knew how much difference a quality knife can make, but now I apologize to my wife constantly for not buying these sooner,” a customer wrote. Japanese knives are typically thin and delicate, perfect for precise cuts that preserve and enhance a dish’s flavor.

This handcrafted set includes five blades, notably a 5.5-inch Nair knife designed to chop and slice vegetables, nestled inside a bamboo and stainless steel block. Global’s knives are constructed from a single piece of stainless steel, and the edges are sharpened with a 50/50 symmetrical bevel for extra-thin cuts.

The hollow handles are dimpled for easy gripping and filled with sand to keep the knives balanced yet lightweight. You’ll find tons of happy customers who’ve left reviews on SUR La Table, including one who said, “I really appreciate the clean lines of the knife block and the great quality of the knives.

Whether you’re cutting into seared steak, roasted vegetables, or comforting baked pasta, a sharp table knife is essential. This stainless steel set comes in a beech wood box and features slightly curved blades with serrated edges to cut effortlessly through meat.

For the perfect gift for anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, and holidays, opt for Material’s Iconic set. Users love their Material Iconic set for its versatility and high-quality build, saying it’s a “game-changer.” It’s no wonder it’s earned a cult following in just over a year.

No matter if you’re tight on kitchen space or don’t want to clutter your countertop, this streamlined block set is a great get. Additionally, the stainless steel slicers have a nonstick silicone coating for easy cleaning and are designed with weighted handles to keep the blades from touching your work surface.

Anyone who loves to cook understands how important a good knife set is. Like a lot of luxury items, though, this isn’t the case, and now you can get a superb set of knives for a reasonable and highly affordable price.

Here, you get knives for chopping, cutting, and slicing, but there is also a pizza knife tool, scissors, and bonus vegetable peeler, while the honing kit means you can keep these knives sharp for years to come. The stand isn’t as stylish as the wooden block which may hinder your hopes of having the best -looking kitchen in the country, but it’s still attractive enough to fit in nicely with most kitchen decors, and it’s also easy to retrieve the knives from without knocking it over or causing a scene.

Another sleek, stylish, and traditional option, the Emo joy Kitchen Knife Set is a substantial 15-piece set to cover all your kitchen knife needs regardless of whether you’re an expert, intermediate, or are still learning how to chop an onion (the trick is not to cry). Unlike other knives we’ve selected, these are easy to care for, but they’re also strong and durable, so it’s more likely they’ll look after you than the other way around.

The Lakewood handles are secure and classy, while the blades are forged using high-carbon stainless steel for a fine and sharp edge and superb performance. The Cuisinart Triple Rivet Collection is a 15-piece set complete with robust, sharp, and reliable high-carbon stainless steel blades and a safety bolster to prevent any unfortunate accidents in the kitchen.

They are also one of the most comfortable knives we’ve identified, and the ergonomic handle feels natural in your hand to make that Sunday dinner food prep much more natural so you won’t feel strained any longer. The storage block follows the stable tradition of other examples, and the angled design means the knives are easy to pull out whenever the task demands it.

Overall, it’s a superb set, but we wish the steak knives continued the wooden-handle design instead of relying on plastic. It’s not a big deal, but it does make them feel a little cheaper compared to other options.

This 12-piece collection provides the basic essentials with some bonus treats to give you a comprehensive knife set ideal for any kitchen regardless of skill level or experience. Of all the knives we’ve selected, these are some of the best looking around, but it’s more than simple style over substance, they do the job you expect them to, also.

Our guide to the best sushi knives features more quality blades for your kitchen, so be sure to check them out. The elegant wood handle is easy to grip and comfortable for extensive chopping sessions, while the whole set overall is a dream to look at.

The stand is good-looking, but if you have any low-hanging kitchen cupboards, it might make it a little tricky to position properly. Another issue is safety, as the knives are easier to retrieve compared to blocks, keep out of reach of any children.

The blades are stainless steel with a smooth, clear grain finish, while the handles bubbled for easy gripping to prevent slipping and injury. To ensure longevity, you’ll also get a knife sharpener included to keep the edge fine and honed no matter how long you keep them.

However, you’ll need to sharpen them straight out of the box if you want the best results, which is a little inconvenient, but you’d need to learn sometime, anyway. If you’re looking for a simple kitchen knife set that still offers excellent quality, then this could be the ideal choice for you.

Brand Home Hero Model Knife set Weight 2.55 pounds This offers precise cutting, while the hollow handle makes them lightweight and easy to control, although this could affect the durability, especially if you’re lax on sharpening them.

They are easy to clean, and even dishwasher safe, while the lifetime warranty ensures you can overcome any issues you encounter with a (hopefully) simple email to the manufacturer. The precision tapered blades mean excellent performance, and the ergonomic handle is comfortable for anyone to use.

Like anytime you deal with something that is entirely metal, though, there’s the risk of rusting, especially if you do not dry them properly after washing them, either by hand or in the dishwasher. As long as you remember to dry them thoroughly, though, you’ll enjoy years of superb slicing with no need to break the bank to buy them.

While all of these knives are great and most offer fantastically affordable regardless of needs, the Cuisinart Color Knife Set is our choice for the best value option around. It’s a 12-piece set with a color-coded to prevent cross-contamination for big meal preparation, and they also add something unique to your kitchen accessories, too.

The non-stick coating makes it easy to chop and move sliced onions, mushrooms, peppers, and zucchini, while the professional grade steel ensures a high-quality performance every time. There’s also a spectacular safety aspect, because while there’s no block or stand to store them, there are covers which protect the little ones (and the big ones, too) from cutting themselves.

In this article we’re going to go over some kitchen knife set reviews (the best ones I can find) and more importantly how to pick the right one, so you can separate the wheat from the chaff on your own in the future. Why you'll love it: This is a simple, well-made, no frills knife set with a decent variety and a good price.

SIZE: 15 PIECE MATERIAL: STAINLESS STEEL DIMENSIONS: 6.5 × 14.9 × 11.1 INCHES WEIGHT: 8.11 POUNDS It reduces the risk of rust on the knife, which is good…but if you’re taking proper care of your knives, that isn’t an issue.

The trade off in hardness and edge retention is not really worth it in my opinion, shifting this just over the wall into this category. A bit of paint on the handle always goes a long way, not just for aesthetics, but for slightly improving your grip as well.

SIZE: 12 PIECE MATERIAL: STAINLESS STEEL DIMENSIONS: 15.1 × 12.9 × 15 INCHES WEIGHT: 7.1 POUNDS These hold their edge well, sharpen quite nicely, and are durable over the long term.

SIZE: 18 PIECE MATERIAL: STAINLESS STEEL DIMENSIONS: 9.6 × 8.4 × 14.8 INCHES WEIGHT: 13.45 POUNDS Not Dishwasher Safe: These knives are a bit brittle at the edges due to how they’re sharpened, so need to be washed by hand.

These are tough, easy to sharpen, and extraordinarily sharp knives if you take even the bare minimum care of them. The idea is that it is a metal frame set in a wooden block with a glass viewport.

Rounding it out are a carving fork and a pair of very sturdy kitchen shears. It holds its edge well and is durable in the long term, with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.

The hollow handles are great for flair, but beyond looking cool as you spin your knife on a finger to slap into the palm, they serve no practical purpose. This isn’t some kind of throwing blade that wants to be heavier at the tip, it needs to be properly balanced all over.

Price: This set costs about 6 times what our winner does, and isn’t worth it for the glaring issue of the handles, even if the blades are impeccable. Why you'll love it: This is a very nice and reasonably priced set of blades, that’s suffers a bit from being limited in number.

SIZE: 8 PIECE MATERIAL: JAPANESE AUS-10 DIMENSIONS: 13.8 × 2 × 3.9 INCHES WEIGHT: 8.39 POUNDS Lakewood is a wood and plastic composite material commonly used for kitchen knives.

Unlike wood, it won’t expand or shrink over time, and feels very nice in the hand, being somewhat moisture wicking. I still think it’s unnecessary overall, but if you’re going to assume people don’t remember where their knives are, you could do far worse than this design.

SIZE: 7 PIECE MATERIAL: POLYOXYMETHYLENE DIMENSIONS: 17.1 × 12.4 × 4.2 INCHES WEIGHT: 6.8 POUNDS While not as non-slip as other options, it’s also a lot more durable over the long term, being highly resistant to chipping, cracking, fading, or discoloration unlike rubber handles.

Variety: While it doesn’t have a ton of knives, it has pretty much everything anyone will ever actually use in the kitchen. Plus some very great shears that come apart if you need them to (making them easier to clean, and acting as a pair of extra paring knives in a pinch).

It has a small footprint and looks absolutely excellent on your kitchen counter. Why you'll love it: This is a great high carbon steel knife set that loses a few points for being misleading and extraordinarily expensive.

SIZE: 6 PIECE MATERIAL: VG-MAX CORE WITH 34-LAYERS DAMASCUS STAINLESS STEEL DIMENSIONS: 17.6 × 13.8 × 9.4 INCHES WEIGHT: 8.9 POUNDS While these require a bit more care than stainless knives (they must be dried immediately, as high carbon steel rusts incredibly fast), it’s well worth the increase in performance, as they are easy to sharpen, hold an edge well, and are durable for a lifetime (and beyond).

While the knives and block are very high quality, as mentioned I expect a certain significant amount of this increased cost comes from the Damascus cladding they added to the knife, and while it’s beautiful, it is simply not worth the price increase on its own. Why you'll love it: This is an expensive knife set that is quality in some ways, but stumbles too much for a serious recommendation.

SIZE: 7 PIECE MATERIAL: STAINLESS STEEL DIMENSIONS: 4.7 × 14.2 × 9.7 INCHES WEIGHT: 2.2 POUNDS The blades hold their edge well, are easy to re-sharpen with household available tools, and amazingly sharp, which ensures they are safe to use.

At first glance they look fine, with comfortable seeming slots for your index finger to rest and guide the knife, but everything else is simply…wrong, as if they’re made for alien hands. They are not comfortable and dig into the hand when using them, being variably either too large or too small or oddly shaped to get a proper grip on any of the knives presented here.

The only redeeming feature is their moisture wicking grips, aided by those holes. Even in the display picture this looks grimy, as a glass that sets on a countertop is likely to get very quickly.

This adds extra work for you, needing to clean the glass often in addition to keeping the knives pristine, for the added benefit of making it slightly easier to keep track of a mere 6 distinct knives. It seems to be a bit of a trend that these expensive knife sets have terrible handles and low versatility, only having the most basic and general purpose knives.

They’re not the best knives I’ve ever seen in this regard but are quite serviceable as kitchen cutlery, and will last quite a long time. They’re shaped nicely and comfortably for the human hand and don’t look too bad to stick in a block or unroll from a knife sleeve.

The colors are eye searingly bright and annoying to look at, and I would honestly be embarrassed to have these in my house. The blades are relatively soft and hold a terrible edge; re-sharpening them is basically a fool’s errand.

The serration is incredibly coarse, spaced way too far apart to make proper cuts. For the most part these are all great, save for the final Cuisinart model above; that is a strong example of what to never look for in a knife set.

Unlike many household items, stainless steel is NOT actually the best choice for a kitchen knife. Stainless steel is harder to sharpen and buff the nicks out of, leading to them deteriorating faster over time.

Hand forged knives with even higher quality steel are also possible, but largely beyond the scope of this article; most of those will need to be custom-made, and can be quite expensive (though worth it for a cooking enthusiast). They are sharp and keep their edge a long time, requiring little re-sharpening as they age.

Unfortunately they are expensive and BRITTLE, a poor combination, and should be avoided for the average household knife set. Any half decent knife will be made of one solid piece of material, riveted to the handle.

Inspect your knives ; if there is clear indication that the knife is made of two or more pieces or metal welded or glued together, avoid it like the plague. Likewise, look for solid rivets in the handle, with a coating of clear resin to make it smooth.

This creates a solid bond on single piece knives and leaves the handles smooth and sturdy. Finally, the handle should be relatively ergonomic, fitting comfortably in the hand and gliding easily in both a chopping and slicing motion.

As knives can get extremely expensive at the higher ends (hundreds, even thousands of dollars for hand forged, custom-made models like J.A.

Chef’s or Cook’s knife: This is a wide blade that is used for chopping and slicing a variety of foodstuffs, from chicken breasts and cold meats to vegetables. The blade of the best quality chef’s knife should be slightly curved to provide a rocking motion as it cuts.

The Santos has a curved end, rather than a pointed one, making it ideal for the chopping and slicing tasks that are integral to Asian cuisine. In the long run, it’s always best to buy the very highest quality knives that your budget will stretch to, as these will last you longer and perform better.

Stainless steel is popular due its anti-corrosion qualities, although it does need more frequent sharpening than other materials in order to keep the cutting edge sharp. Standard stainless steel tends to be the material of choice that is used in the manufacture of cheaper kitchen knife sets, although price doesn’t necessarily mean that the quality of the product is inferior.

Although it is usually more expensive than standard stainless steel, it contains a higher proportion of carbon, meaning that your blades will retain their sharpness for longer and will also be harder wearing. Carbon steel is very rust and corrosion resistant and produces a consistently sharp blade, even after repeated sharpening.

Investing in a kitchen knives set made from carbon steel should mean that you never need to replace them, and they should give efficient service for their lifetime. However, ceramic knife blades do tend to inflict considerable damage on wooden chopping boards and you cannot use them in a twisting motion that would be necessary for some tasks.

A standard knife steel simply will not do the job, and you will need to send your titanium knives away to a professional company to have them re-honed. For safety reasons, the choir should be smooth and not pointed backwards, as this could injure your forefinger when you apply pressure to the knife.

It is usually thicker than the rest of the blade in order to prevent your fingers from slipping forward and sustaining injury. However, bear in mind that a bolster that is too large will make it difficult to sharpen the full length of the blade.

Balance is an important consideration when choosing a chef’s knife, and we’ll look at this in more detail later in the guide. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that knives washed by hand usually stay sharper for longer.

Some are designed to completely sheath the knife blade within the block, leaving only the handle or bolster sticking out, whereas others allow the knives to hang down between two clear tempered glass or acrylic plates. Also, be sure to choose a block that allows plenty of space between the knife handles for ease of use, especially if you have manual dexterity problems.

The second option allows you to see the knife blade, making it quick and easy to select the right one, which is essential if you work in a busy kitchen. Additionally, airborne bacteria can quickly gather on exposed blades, presenting a hygiene issue.

This handy feature can save you a lot of time and labor and is also much safer to use than a sharpening stone or steel. A good-quality knife block should be heavy enough to keep it stable on a smooth kitchen work surface.

As there are plenty of kitchens knife sets available that offer a wide and comprehensive choice of blades, it’s usually more practical to buy one of these. Rather than using a knife block, you could opt to store your kitchen knives on a magnetic strip attached to the wall or to the inside of a cupboard door.

Although this would save counter space in a small kitchen and allows you to clearly see which blade is which, it is not an ideal storage solution. The knives will be left exposed to the steam and airborne grease in your kitchen environment, potentially leaving the blades vulnerable to corrosion and trapping bacteria.

This is especially true for cooks who hold the knife at the bolster with their thumb and index finger resting on the blade. A paring knife, meanwhile, typically has a blade much smaller and lighter than its handle to tackle intricate tasks.

The majority of chef’s knives in stores today are of the German style, with edges featuring a continuous and relatively consistent curvature. A forged knife is made from a single bar of metal and is heat-treated, annealed, and case-hardened to a high level.

A stamped knife comes from a prefabricated metal sheet that is cut with a die in the desired shape and then sharpened. Japanese blades tend to fall toward the lower end of this spectrum, allowing them to make precision cuts with less effort.

A lower HRC value means the metal is softer, so the cutting edge will dull faster than that of a higher hardness value. Basic carbon steel is extremely strong and easy to sharpen to a keen edge.

The exact process and formula for making this steel has been lost to time, despite multiple replication attempts. Most if not all blades that bear the name today are simply high-carbon steels with similar wavy patterns in the metal.

A quality Damascus knife will serve you well, but know that a significant part of that high price tag is for aesthetics. Until we can fabricate the perfect cutlery cermet material, ceramic blades will probably remain a niche item intended for precision work.

Make sure it’s not too slippery even when it gets wet, and that both its width and length are a good match for the size of your hand. The Author Classic Chef’s Knife is forged from high-carbon stainless steel, sharpened to a 14-degree angle, and has a riveted full tang.

Precision forged Full tang, riveted handle Sharp (Pitched to 14 degrees per side) Bolster for finger guard The knife is forged from one single piece of steel, sporting a thick, solid blade.

Its tang runs all the way through the handle and is fastened with three rivets, giving it excellent balance and stability. The plastic grips, while not gorgeous, fit in with the tang and bolster seamlessly, leaving no gaps for dirt or food particles.

Those with tiny hands or delicate wrists may find it heavy (in which case, check out the Cuckoo Santos right below). On the other hand, a lower HRC means the knife is more ductile and less likely to chip or break under concentrated pressure than its harder counterparts.

With an extra narrow edge and reasonable size, weight, and hardness, the Author Classic will excel at pretty much every cutting task in the kitchen. It’s expensive, but glowing reviews from chefs who have been using their Author Classic for decades suggest it’s an investment with good returns.

The knife feels solid, balanced, and weighted for its size of 7 inches, but still agile enough for smaller hands. We loved that the bolster becomes thinner as it runs from the handle to the blade, making a smooth transition instead of an abrupt indentation.

It’s a great design for sanitation, too: The absence of corners means there’s no space for grease or food particles to accumulate. The dimples effectively prevent thin slices of meat or vegetables from sticking to the blade.

If you like to cut in a rocking motion, though, this knife is not a good choice due to its flat belly. The Cuckoo Santos is a pragmatic choice: It excels in both performance and aesthetics, and is offered at a reasonable price.

Coming in a pretty magnetic box, the knife would make a nice housewarming gift. Shun’s 8-inch VG-MAX Classic is a fantastic Japanese take on the common German style chef’s knife.

Included in the metal’s formula, though, is a bit of added tungsten, carbon, and cobalt. The increased hardness of the blade makes it slightly easier to chip than simpler steels.

For chefs who like to grip around the bolster, this Shun will offer a bit less comfort than the German design. When fat, heavy Western knives won’t cut it (*snicker*), turn to Strong’s Shogun Santoku-style knife.

Strong has hardened their Shogun knife to 62 HRC on the Rockwell scale, meaning it should keep that sharp edge well. Though stamped rather than forged, the Victorinox is great for the chef who wants to start exploring the Asian side of cutlery.

Though smaller and cheaper than its cousins, the 5” Genesis is still fully forged from German high-carbon stainless steel. Though we didn’t discuss utility knives above, it shouldn’t surprise you that they are versatile, but serve a different function than the larger chef’s knife.

First and foremost, you should pay attention to the steel quality of a given knife set. High carbon steel lasts for a long time and maintains a good edge over its lifespan.

Either way is great because stainless steel can resist corrosive damage, which will result in your knife set lasting much longer than it otherwise would. These sets have plenty of specialty blades to let you elegantly and precisely cut through more specific foods like fish or certain types of soft fruit.

Heavier knives are more difficult to wield for longer periods of time, like if you are preparing a big dish. Lighter knives are easier to handle but also may not be quite as durable; weight is connected to how thick the blade is for a given knife.

This may even be a better choice in the long run since there’s less chance of the handles becoming damaged from water over time. Storage blocks give you organized places to set your blades and facilitate good drying, which is critical for maintaining the quality of your steel.
