Kitchen Knives

Sharp kitchen knives are the single most important item in your culinary arsenal. It’s the only tool that can do everything from cutting up a whole chicken to finely mincing garlic or herbs. But buying a great knife, or a great knife set, is tough. For starters, almost any knife is sharp when it’s new, a finding we confirmed in our last major test of kitchen knives, when the vast majority of models scored favorably for cutting performance.

Instead of getting hung up on a knife that’s simply sharp, hone in on construction, ergonomics, and feel, because along with how you use and care for a chef’s knife, those factors determine how a knife will hold up over time, and how easy it’ll be to use for repetitive cutting tasks day after day.
