The best kitchen knives, plus deals

A dull knife can take cooking from a delicious activity to a frustrating chore. If a subpar set of knives is hindering your efforts in the kitchen, odds are, it's time to invest in a new set of solid kitchen knives. We found some of the top-rated knives you can shop right now — some of which are even on sale to help you upgrade your cooking skills this spring. 

Determining the right kitchen knives for you all depends on your budget. More affordable kitchen knives may dull faster, but no matter the price of your knives, you'll eventually have to sharpen them. (Good news there, though: Amazon's No. 1 best-selling three-stage knife sharpener is on sale for just $16 right now.)

Ahead, we've gathered the best reviewer-loved knives from Amazon, Zola, Walmart, Our Place and more, and they are a cut above the rest. Whether you're seeking a whole new knife set or just a few new types of kitchen knives, these options can help you on your way to becoming a world-class home cook.

This best-selling Astercook 14-Piece Knife Set includes a chef knife, slicing knife, santoku knife, serrated bread knife, utility knife, paring knife, six serrated steak knives, kitchen shears and a hard wood knife block with a built-in sharpener. 


From the brand that brought you the popular Always Pan, Our Place also offers stylish knives. The three-piece Knife Trio includes the Everyday Chef's Knife, Serrated Slicing Knife and Precise Paring Knife. You can buy each knife separately or save $25 by buying the bundle.


With over 39,200 5-star reviews, the Cuisinart 12-Piece Knife Set is the perfect addition to your kitchen. The set features nonstick ceramic coating that makes it easy to slice your food and keep blades sharp for a long period. 


From YouTuber and cookbook author, Andrew Rea, of Binging with Babish, this versatile santoku knife can chop it all. The kitchen essential is forged from a single piece of high-carbon 1.4116 German steel, and the Granton edge reduces drag and food sticking to the blade. 


Just like the previous set, this Henckels starter kit includes a paring knife, a serrated utility knife and a chef's knife, but at a more affordable price point. These knives are made from German stainless steel.


Upgrade your kitchenware with this Selena Gomez-loved knife set!


The Misen Essentials Knife Set includes a chef's knife, serrated knife and utility knife for all your cooking needs. Choose from blue, black or gray handles in these knives made from high-carbon stainless steel. 


If you're looking to invest in just one new knife, try the Wüsthof classic cook's knife. This high-carbon stainless steel knife, made in Germany, has a finger guard. It comes with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty, too. Available in three sizes (8-inches being the middle size). 


Astercook's 15-piece Damascus knife set features a variety of stainless steel knives with a comforting handle to make chopping and slicing easier. 


This is a specialty knife specifically designed for boning and filleting fish and meat. This 6-inch knife from Shun is made with 34 layers of high-carbon stainless steel on each side.
