Kitchen Knife Sets

kitchen knife setsKitchen knife sets are one of the best ways to save money when shopping for many pieces of cutlery at once. But they’re also one of the easiest ways to waste money — if you’re not careful. This is because many kitchen brands tend to focus on one or two quality kitchen knives in any one set, then fill up the rest of the knife block with small, lesser quality blades.

So then, what’s the trick to getting all the kitchen knives you need at the best price? Ideally, the best way to do this is to purchase two or three high-quality knives piece by piece and add to that collection as you are able to over time. Or, opt for a smaller, high-quality set instead of a cheap 20-piece block set that you’ll have to replace in 10 years.

Kitchen Knife Styles

Before voyaging out into the world of knife block sets, it’s good to know what kinds of knives are out there and, more importantly, what kinds of knives you actually need. There are hundreds of block sets out there, and if you can narrow down the choices to what your crucial kitchen needs are, your shopping will be much, much easier.

Chef’s Knife: This is the all-around kitchen workhorse, a must-have in any kitchen set. A chef’s knife, also called a cook’s knife, has a blade anywhere from 8 to 14 inches long. Shorter knives work best for those with smaller hands, and vice versa. Chop with the wide, heavy part of the blade near the handle, and use the thinner tip of the blade for quick mincing. If you’re going to splurge extra cash on any one knife, this is the one.

Santoku: Similar to a chef’s knife, a santoku is the Japanese cutlery equivalent of the all-around workhorse blade. In general, these knives are shorter in length, and the blades are thinner and more lightweight. (For something longer, look for a gyuto knife instead). Another noticeable difference in most santoku knives is a granton or scalloped edge — indentation cuts made along the side of the blade that make slicing and dicing much easier, resulting in cleaner cuts.

Paring Knife: These are the smallest knives in any set, and they’re often the most used. A good paring knife makes any kitchen prep task go by a lot faster. Make sure this knife has a plain edge, not a serrated edge. The straight edge will not only help with peeling and carving, but it’ll also keep your fingers safer than an uneven serrated blade.

Utility Knife: This type of knife is extremely helpful if you do a lot of slicing prep work. The blade is longer than a paring knife and thinner than a chef’s knife.

Bread Knife: Slicing — and not shredding — through loaves is the job of the bread knife. These blades are long, thin, and serrated so that crumbs are minimal. To use properly, let gravity do the work and gently use sawing motions to create each slice.

Steak Knife: Many knife block sets will include a row of steak knives to sweeten the deal. Just remember that any steak knife should have just as much quality and attention to detail as the rest of the knives in the set. Look for full tang blades and high quality steel. Both serrated or plain-edged knives are fine options; plain edges may cost more, but they can be sharpened to last longer.

Carving Knife: It’s important to shop for both aesthetics and technical specs when looking at carving knife & fork sets. This is because you’ll be using this cutlery both in the kitchen and out at the buffet table for presentation. Serrated blades do well with large cuts of meat, although plain-edged blades have the advantage of on-the-spot honing to keep carved portions looking their best.

Cleaver: There are plenty of knives well suited for preparing small food batches, but not many exist for breaking down large produce items or butchering whole cuts of meat. That’s because, fortunately, a good cleaver is all you’ll need. The heavier the better, up to as much as you are comfortable with.

Boning Knife: This is a blade you’ll want to have on hand if you cook a lot of meat and seafood dishes from scratch. The specific shape of this knife allows the blade to easily separate flesh from bone with minimal waste. You’ll see blades ranging from stiff to flexible during your search. Stiff blades are better suited for red meats and poultry, and flexible blades (such as those found in fillet knives) work well for fish.

Sushi Knife: Often a blade found in Japanese knife sets, sushi knives can also perform well in slicing, carving, and filleting tasks. Since they’re not typical Western knives, you’ll see them referred to as sashimi or yanagi knives. In European or American sets, they may be called salmon knives.

Many knife block sets will also include a pair of kitchen shears and a sharpening steel to keep the knife blades intact. Both are a helpful bonus to any set.

Starter Sets & Block Sets

For a gourmet-quality Japanese starter set, look no further than the Global Santoku Knife Set. The cut and angle will take some getting used to if you haven’t worked with Japanese cutlery before, but once you start, there’s an excellent chance you’ll never go back. The balance and attention to detail are impeccable. Each knife is forged from one solid piece of steel and is balanced with grains of sand in the handles. This starter set includes a santoku, utility, and paring knife.

If interested in an East-meets-West approach, try the J.A. Henckels Twin Signature Asian 2-piece starter set. Both chef’s and paring knives are forged in the knife steel capital of the world — Solingen, Germany — but feature lightweight granton blades. It’s rare to see a granton paring knife, and that’s one of the many reasons why this set stands out.

Henckels also makes several classic Western starter sets like this Twin Cuisine set with chef’s knife, utility knife, paring knife, and sharpening steel. These plain-edged, extremely sharp knives are full tang and extend into ergonomic handles.

Two knife block sets that we like are the Chicago Cutlery Walnut Tradition set and the J.A. Henckels International Forged Synergy set. Choose the Chicago Cutlery set for a well-rounded collection of kitchen knives with black walnut handles, or go with the Henckels Forged Synergy set if you favor a customized approach. The large knife block includes only four kitchen knives and a set of steak knives, leaving you room to fill in the extra spaces with knives of your choosing.

These stamped knives from Henckels aren't of the same quality as their "forged" lines.
