If you can’t get enough of Chopped or you’re still re-watching past seasons of Top Chef, then might we suggest treating yourself to a new purchase? Think of it as a reward for getting through the winter — and all that binge-watching.
Spring is a time for cleaning up our acts, after all, and no better place to do so than in the kitchen.
If you’re looking for a place to start, the trio of blades in this Hand-Forged Damascus Steel Chef Knife Set should be enough to tide you over.
These knife blades are forged, welded, and hammered by hand until they’re hundreds of layers strong. This results in their unparalleled sharpness and toughness, as well as their distinctive patterns reminiscent of flowing water.
They’re pegged to a 55 HRC hardness (translation to plain English: “extremely super mega hard”), plus they’re easy to wield thanks to their pakka wood scale handles. You get a large 13-inch knife, medium 11-inch knife, and a small 9-inch knife. That’s all you need, really, in terms of your kitchen setup. Whether making quick work of a big roast or carving up elegant julienned potatoes, you’ll find they’ll make quick work of any task you need.
Give it a whirl: This premium knife set is valued at $89, but snag it on sale for just $69.
