About this deal

The mark however first appears engraved on the Silver Tablet of Cutlers, held in the Thiers town archives, dated 7th June 1813. For eligible items, we will replace any defective items with some exceptions regarding proper care and use.

If there's one takeaway here, it's that casual home cooks are arguably better off getting a Western chef's knife, since they're more robust and easier to maintain.The Chef's Knife can be bought individually or as part of a four-piece set like this one (also available in an attractive olive wood version). I'd describe this knife as a good starter blade, one that you can get away with mistreating just a little, or a good backup knife to keep on hand for friends (and spouses) who haven't earned the privilege to touch the better knives in your collection. Knife blocks can be bulky, which is why, for most home cooks, we recommend a magnetic knife strip to keep blades free from harm. The sharp tip is particularly helpful when cutting around bones, and the fun handle colors are beautiful and great for personalizing.

Good edge retention relies on a combination of steel composition and hardness, blade thickness, and bevel angle. PROFESSIONAL CHEF'S KNIFE - Perfectly balanced, razor-sharp and built to last - the Chopaholic Professional Chef's Knife from Jean Patrique effortlessly combines style and functionality, from the ergonomic stainless steel handle to the single-forged, high carbon blade. The Mac MTH-80 is our favorite knife because it’s crazy sharp and will stay that way longer than most other knives. The blade on this chef knife has a 2mm thick spine and a full flat grind, which means that the grind on the blade goes all the way down from the spine to the edge bevel in a flat, linear slope, resulting in a stronger blade.

Unfortunately, the blade lost its edge after a few short tests, requiring sharpening soon after unboxing. The knife edge stays sharper longer than traditional knives due to the Molybdenum Stainless Steel blade and the balance is made to feel comfortable and causes no fatigue or discomfort. The brand's 6-inch knife is perfect for smaller hands and glides through ripe tomatoes with its sharp edge.

I have seen ladies using a utility and even a paring knife as their all-purpose knife (I’m genuinely amazed that they manage to do everything with such a small knife).

Good Housekeeping participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on editorially chosen products purchased through our links to retailer sites. However, I found it challenging to use a rocking motion while cutting vegetables, due to its relatively narrow edge.One of the more affordable options among the German-style knives tested, Mercer's Genesis chef's knife delivers good bang for the buck. It’s ideal for slicing leeks, green onions, and herbs into fine julienne, but it’s also excellent for handling most fruit and vegetable prep and slicing boneless meat filets. Factors such as sharpness, edge retention, durability, versatility, and easy maintenance are key to the performance of any good chef’s knife. If you were being generous, you'd say it's an ergonomic handle design, but in truth, it felt a little too chunky when I was gripping up on the blade, which is how I always use a chef's knife. And even for those of us who tend to work with an 8-inch or 10-inch knife, there are some undertakings, such as cutting up a big old watermelon, for which it can be handy to have an even longer one.
