The best…kitchen knives

Wüsthof Classic 8-inch, Chicago Cutlery Fusion Chef, and more

Wüsthof Classic 8-inch
Of 21 chef’s knives we tested, this classic came out on top among traditional choices. Not only does it cleanly slice through a tomato’s skin, it’s also “expert” at slicing and chopping onions and carrots.

Chicago Cutlery Fusion Chef
This budget-priced knife goes “cut for cut” with costlier alternatives, even outperforming many in its ability to slice cleanly through a tomato. The cushioned grip increases comfort and confidence.

Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro
The blade of the Zwilling Pro has a new shape that makes it easy to rock back and forth when you’re chopping. The Pro’s precision-forged blade is ice-hardened and laser-sharpened.

Kikuichi Elite Warakami Damascus All-Purpose Knife
For “the ultimate in macho kitchenware,” it’s hard to find a better source than the Japanese firm Kikuichi, which in the 14th century made swords for samurai. The company brings the “same ornate style” to its century-old kitchen line.
