What to look for when buying cutlery

Shop Wisely

Great knives are a smart investment. Make an educated decision and you'll be setting yourself up with knives you'll have forever.


  • Comfortable handle

    Ergonomically designed thermo-resin handles make meal prep a pleasure.

  • Full Tang

    Steel extends through the handle for added balance and strength.

  • Sharp Blade

    High-carbon stainless steel provides the ideal balance between sharpness and edge durability.

  • Triple Rivets

    Each of the three nickel-silver rivets that attach the handles to the blade is sanded flush with the handle to ensure durability, comfort and cleanliness.

Ask yourself these questions

Before you buy, consider the knives you will need.

  • What kind of cook are you?
  • Do you prepare most of your meals from scratch?
  • How many times a day/week do you use your knives?

Your answers will help decide which type and how many knives you need.
