Cooking Knives


If you're looking to purchase some new cooking knives or maybe find the perfect chef's knife for that cook on your gift list, you might want to take a look at the results of this knife test.

Cooking blogger and engineer Michael Chu tested 11 chef's knives from $29 to over $200 to find out which ones performed the best.

His findings:

The overall best performance:
Global 8" Chef's Knife, $88.95

MAC MTH-80 MAC Mighty Chef 8" with dimples (Chu's favorite)

MAC MTH-85 MAC Mighty Chef 8.5"

Best value (price for performance)

Best value for outstanding performance:
Tojiro DP F-808 21cm Gyoto Chef's Knife

Cutco 9-1/4" French Chef, (the only knife to receive an unacceptable rating on three out of four of the tests)

The performance tests included included cutting and slicing carrots, potatoes, tomatoes and scallions.

Note that all of the cooking knives were tested out of the box and not sharpened.
