The knives with a following.

There’s a reason these knives are beloved by home chefs and professionals alike—actually, lots of reasons. For starters, every slicer is crafted in Japan from a single piece of the finest stainless steel. And then there’s that razor-like edge, with a sharpness you can really see: It’s ground steeply to a point from a quarter-inch up (not beveled like other blades are), so it’ll hold its edge for longer. They’ve all got trusty handles, too, since each one is weighted just-right for a comfortable hold and has an iconic dimpled pattern for extra grip.

Pick from a spread of shapes, sizes, and sets:

  • An 8-inch chef’s for chopping, mincing, and multitasking
  • A smaller 6-inch chef’s for more precise cuts
  • A serrated 8.5-inch for bread, cake, tomatoes, you name it
  • A 7-inch santoku with scalloped grooves for quick and easy slicing
  • A 3-inch paring for your tinier tasks
  • A 3-Piece set to get you started in the kitchen
  • A 4-Piece set that includes some gleaming food prep sidekicks
  • A 10-Piece set that has all you could need for your next culinary adventure (and more!)

Have your eye on those super-sharp kitchen shears? You can snag them up by themselves, if you'd like!
