When it comes to a good set of knives, the best options tend to be expensive. That’s why we’re so excited that Black Friday is finally here. Knife deals are better than ever this year because many companies are overstocked with “household, garden and furniture items they may not have gotten rid of during the Labor Day weekend sale,” reports Kristen Gall, expert of retail and shopping for Rakuten. If you’re looking to replace your dull knives with some new blades, you’re in luck. Amazon just slashed the price of this top-notch 15-piece Henckels set by a whopping 62%.
This brand has long been the standard bearer of quality cutlery (craftsmanship, strength, beauty, functionality), and this set is a classy specimen. Each comes with a 3-inch paring knife, a 5-inch serrated utility knife, a 7-inch hollow edge santoku knife, an 8-inch chef’s knife, an 8-inch bread knife, and a set of six steak knives. It also comes with a professional sharpening steel, kitchen shears, and a hardwood block for storing everything.
The handles are perfectly curved to fit comfortably in your hand and boast a stainless steel end cap to help balance the weight. The exquisitely honed stainless steel blades let you make precision cuts with ease, and they’re both stain and rust resistant, so you can hand wash or throw them in the dishwasher without worry.
With clever details like this, it’s no wonder more than 9,000 Amazon shoppers are fans of the stylish set. “They’re the best knives I’ve ever owned,” disappointed one. “The first thing I used them for was cutting an apple. The knife went through the apple as if it were cutting hot butter. I love the shape of the knife. So easy to hold. I would definitely recommend it.”
Another said they were “worth the upgrade”, before adding, “Honestly the best knives ever. This is the first time we’ve upgraded to higher quality knives and it makes a huge difference! They have a heavy sturdy feel and you can tell they are beautiful/high quality.100% recommend!
While a third wrote: “I didn’t know what I was missing until I got this set. This is my first ever set of knives, my parents never had one. Really worth it as an investment. The handles are heavy and easy to grip. They are super sharp, I nicked my finger while washing them and barely touched the blade. I’m finally able to cut green onions beautifully.
Right now this set is 62% off, down from $345 to just $130 – a savings of $215. A deal this good is bound to sell out fast, so be sure to snag the popular knife set at this amazing discount while you can.
