Best Kitchen Knife Set

post-preview

A small collection of high quality, sharp knives is better than a kitchen full of dull, second-rate ones. You'll end up with knives you won't use. You really only need a good chef's knive, pairing knife, serated knife and maybe a bread knife. You'll also save money by assembling a smaller set yourself and then seeing what you need.

Gordon Ramsey uses Henckles brand knives. Moving away from the German-style knives we have things like Miyabi and Shun with some good performers, but not cheaply. Victorinox is about as good as you're going to get for budget and quality.

Most pros would say that the 3 knives everyone needs are:

  • 8" chef's knife,
  • 3.5" paring knife
  • 8-9" bread knife

Add ons:

  • 5" santoku knife: this is the ideal size and shape for most things between the size of a garlic clove and a boneless, skinless chicken breast and it's nimble enough to make dicing onions and shallots and mincing herbs herbs fun.
  • A boning knife: this is a more specialized knife that's a huge plus for any carnivore. Boning knives make breaking down meat significantly easier and cut thicker steaks/chops.
  • A good honing rod to keep your knives in shape between sharpenings

Victorinox Fibrox Pro 3-piece Knife Set

What is Victorinox Fibrox?

Fibrox is the flagship line of professional cutlery from Victorinox Swiss Army. The series is built on the company's century-old expertise of culinary knife making, a practice its craftsmen were perfecting even before a military knife made the brand a household name.

Victorinox Fibrox Knives are cut into a shape from a cold rolled piece of steel and then ground, tempered, and sharpened. It requires many less steps than forging and results in a lighter, narrower blade. Stamped knives are easier to produce and therefore less expensive and can be resharpened over and over again.. They perform very well and can approach the quality of a forged blade, but not the weight or feel. A stamped knife can usually be identified by the absence of a bolster. Patented Fibrox handles are hygienic, dishwasher safe and slip-resistant. Hand finished in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen with a lifetime warranty.
