Zwilling J.A. Henckels
$149.95

Made in Germany, this chef's knife is the ultimate, all-purpose knife you'll reach for every day. Use it for chopping, slicing, di...cing and mincing just about any ingredient. The gently curved handle, crafted with Mediterranean holm oak, feels comfortable in hand and adds a beautifully warm appearance. Triple-riveted for stability, it boasts a full tang for impeccable geometry and perfect balance. Mediterranean Holm Oak is not only beautiful-it is incredibly hard and strong. The Romans used this same wood to make wine casks, agricultural tools and wheels for their carts and carriages. The Pro Holm Oak collection by Zwilling J.A. Henckels combines their 280 years of knife-forging experience with the simplistic, yet innovative, design of renowned Italian architect Matteo Thun. An angled bolster helps you cut with enhanced precision, safety and comfort, and allows the entire length of the blade to be used for chopping, slicing, dicing and more. This unique feature also permits the entire length of the blade to be sharpened from bolster to tip. The artisan handles are made the old-fashioned way, on a machine dating back more than 100 years, and then finished by hand to ensure impeccable craftsmanship. Using Zwilling's exclusive Sigmaforge® process, knives are precision-forged from a single piece of Friodur® ice-hardened high-carbon German stainless steel, laser-cut for optimal blade angles and finally polished by hand. This results in a sharper blade with excellent edge retention and superior resilience. read more

Miyabi
$99.96

An essential addition to any chef's collection, the versatile chef's knife is perfect for almost any cutting task-from dicing frui...ts and vegetables to carving roasted meats and breaking down poultry. Miyabi pays tribute to the beauty of traditional craftsmanship with the introduction of Miyabi Koh -meaning "light" in Japanese. Classic, simple and comfortable to use in either a Western or Eastern hold, this cutlery collection is as functional as it is beautiful. The faceted pakkawood handle echoes those favored in Japan, and each one is individually weight-tested in a nine-step process to ensure perfect ergonomic design. Forged from FC61 stainless steel, each full-tang blade is touched by 46 artisans and is hand-honed to an exceptionally sharp 9.5-12 degrees. The Friodur 2 hardening process improves the microstructure of the steel for improved cutting performance, corrosion resistance and durability-and the blades are polished to a stunning mirror finish. Sandblasted katana edges, a signature decorative pin and a hand-engraved logo add distinctive Japanese style to the minimalist design. read more

Furi Knives
$79.95

Furi Pro Chef's Serrated Bread Knife, 9-Inch Blade (23 cm) slices without tearing. Designed with rounded serrations to stay sharpe...r for longer. These perfect serrations mean a smooth cut on your sourdough, rye or pane de casa. Engineered for design, innovation and performance. Furi Knives designed and established in 1996 by leading Australian engineers and international chefs, has won respect, awards and popularity for its exceptional performance, designs and durability. Furi knives feature a seamless, all Japanese stainless steel construction. The smooth, seamless contours eliminate food and dirt traps for the ultimate in safety and hygiene. The blade is constructed from a high carbon stainless steel alloy that is different from typical German and modern Japanese blades because the alloy is not VrMoV based. Rather, it is high carbon and therefore tougher and easier to sharpen and also holds its edge a long time. Chefs and experienced knife users find it is more like carbon steel knives, but with corrosion resistance. Furi achieves a blade that is both strong and sharp by grinding carefully to very thin shoulders (for less cutting resistance), but with a strong cutting edge at 17 degrees (not 15). Our blades are the only ones that sit right in the middle between very sharp but fragile Japanese blades, and very strong but not so sharp German blades. The best practical combination possible for chefs. Developed for the professional chef; Furi knives are tough, weighty and more comfortable with a reverse wedge handle design that resists slip toward the blade known as hand creep. This leads to much less fatigue for heavy knife users (and therefore less carpal tunnel and related strain injuries, common to chefs). The optimum bolster design allows the user to fully sharpen the knife to the blade heel while providing a comfortable finger rest. Furi Cutlery offer superior performance and comfort. 25 year guarantee; designed to last in the toughest kitchens. read more
