Why you should buy a high-quality chef's knife
Cut with a blunt knife blade, destroy the structure of the food or change its consistency negatively. The smoother and cleaner the food is processed, the greater the final pleasure. Kitchen knives from ZWILLING and MIYABI are made of high-quality stainless or damask steels, have a perfect cut, and have a long-lasting blade sharpness. If a kitchen knife loses its sharpness, you will find instructions on how to sharpen knives correctly in our inspiration section. You can also browse through our collection of Knife Sharpeners and steels.
How to find the right chef's knife
In general, you can't go wrong with a classic chef's knife. However, whether you prefer to process food with a classic, Chinese or Japanese chef's knife is an individual question to which there are probably as many answers as there are cooks. First, check whether you prefer a short or long blade. Then test whether the chef's knife fits comfortably in the hand. Which handle material, wood, plastic, or stainless steel, you prefer depends entirely on your taste.
When you hold a high-quality knife in your hands for the first time, you will feel the difference from the less quality kitchen knife. The workmanship and the cut are in a different class. When you cut with such a chef's knife for the first time, you will know what "sharp" means.
