Best Kitchen Knife Sets

0561 96ac 97

You can’t produce a proper meal without that essential piece of cooking equipment – a good chef’s knife.

Here are some of the best chef knife sets on the market.​

KitchenAid 12 Piece Knife Set

The KitchenAid 12 piece knife set is made from high carbon stainless steel, with contoured handles with a steel end, so that the knives fit comfortably in your hands.

Here is what you get in this set: an 8 inch chef’s knife, an 8 inch slicer knife, a 5.5 inch serrated utility knife, a 5 inch santoku knife, a 3.5 inch paring knife, and four 4.5 inch steak knives.

You also get a set of kitchen shears and an knife block.

They are hand wash only, and you should make sure they are dried immediately after washing to prevent rust.

This set is more suited to people that eat a lot of steak than the Rachael Ray knife set, which has smaller knives and no steak knives. I personally think the KitchenAid is the better set because the knife sizes are bigger.

You can get this set with free shipping

Wusthof 7 Piece Knife Set with Block

For stamped steel knives, you can’t go wrong with Wüsthof and their Gourmet 7 piece knife set includes all the cutting implements a modern chef needs.

Like the Shun knives, these are made from high carbon stainless steel, but where Shun layers and folds the steel samurai-style, Wüsthof stamp their knives from a single sheet of steel.

(Note that the Wüsthof Classic line, which is a lot more expensive, hand-forges the knives, which is a different technique from the stamped steel you find in this Wüsthof Gourmet line).

Here is what you get in this set:

* 8 inch cook’s knife
* 8 inch bread knife
* 4.5 inch utility knife
* 3.5 inch paring knife
* 9 inch honing steel
* kitchen shears
* solid oak block with 9 slots

Wüsthof are a German brand and these knives are made in Germany and come with a lifetime warranty. Click here to buy

Shun Classic 6 Piece Knife Set with Bamboo Block

Shun knives are made from 33 layers of high-carbon stainless steel, (a VG-10 stainless steel core and then 16 layers on each side), in much the same way Samurai swords are forged, layer upon layer.

This set consists of 6 pieces – a bamboo knife storage block, a pair of kitchen scissors, an 8 inch chef’s knife, a utility knife, a paring knife and a sharpening steel.

The handles are D-shaped and made of pakkawood, which is made of layers of hardwood with waterproof resin.

They are designed for smaller hands – so women should be able to use them comfortably – men with extremely large hands may find this set too small for them.

These knives are made in Seki City in Japan, which is the center of all Samurai sword making in Japan. they come with a limited lifetime warranty. Click here to buy them online
