We have J.A. Henckels knives and love ours!

My parents still use the J.A. Henckels knife block that they got as a wedding present over 25 years ago!

ETA: Good knives will cost you a pretty penny but they are so worth it!

I have Wusthof, love them! Be careful because Wusthof has come out with a cheaper line, don’t get those.

Shun is another good one; I love Shun knives, just don’t own any myself. (I have a Shun mandolin, just not individual knives.)

We also use J.A. Henckels, and we love them!! We got the $200 set from bbb. We were between that and the Wustof set (which was $300)… but I didn’t feel there was a big enough difference to get that one.

Remember, the blade should continue through the handle and the knives should be heavy.  Do not get “stamped knives”, get “forged knives”.

I agree with what everyone else has said, but wanted to tell you what we are doing. My Fiance does ALL the cooking. He is obsessed with any kitchen utensil. He also is a firm believer in buying a good quality item once instead of so-so quality items over and over. He also wanted really good knives because they can become dangerous if they don’t hold their edge. He also says that you don’t need a set because some knives you will never use, especially if you aren’t into fancy cooking. Also, he likes forged wusthof and shun.

So, with all that in mind, here are the knives that everyone should have: 8 inch chef’s knife to chop, dice, mince, slice – basically all purpose; 3 or 4 inch paring knife for peeling and coring; 8-10 inch serrated knife for carving and slicing bread. He would also recommend a good pair of break-apart kitchen shears. 

Hope this helps!

I agree with peaches1038, 95% of the time I use my chef’s knife.

Darling Husband has a few nice Wustofs since he’s the chef, but we were gifted a set of Henckels that are pretty good and cheaper.
