Here are some products we recommend for your culinary adventures – and some that we love because they have that “Yusssssss” factor.
When buying a chef’s knife, the market is filled with options ranging from affordable to exorbitant. While some high-end knives may be visually stunning, they may not be practical for the average home cook. Therefore, it’s important for home cooks to carefully evaluate their options and choose a knife that strikes the perfect balance between quality and price. A professional-grade knife can make a significant difference in the kitchen. Once you experience the precision and control it offers, you will likely never want to return to using lower-quality knives from department stores.
It’s important to note that the knives mentioned below are not the same knives as those mentioned in our Essential Kitchen Tools article. These are a different set of knives that we believe are of the upper echelon for home cooks.

Miyabi Chef’s Knife, 8-Inch, Birch/Stainless Steel
“Beautiful to hold and behold, these German-engineered, Japanese-designed knives put precision in the palm of your hands. Crafted in Seki, Japan, MIYABI knives offer the ultimate in sharpness, comfort, durability, and beauty.”
We cannot agree more.
Kiritsuke Chef Knife – 8.5 inch – Shogun Series
“Considered a Japanese version of the mult-purpose chef’s knife, this blade fuses the design of both traditional Japanese yanigabas (fish slicers) and usubas (vegetables knives). In Japanese cuisine, the kiritsuke is typically reserved for master chef’s, given the skill required in using and maintaining single bevel knives. The Shogun Series version is however double-beveled, making it both easier to use and maintain. A stunning and useful addition to any knife bag.”
This product offers unbeatable value for its price. It is a superior blade that is easily accessible at an affordable cost.
