When you’re buying a kitchen knife set, you’re obviously looking to buy the essentials for you kitchen in a cheaper price. However if you buy a 19-piece knife set, don’t you think that you’re just wasting your money with the knives rusting away in the block? Why not buy a quality knife set at the same price which will give you even better results.
An 8-piece knife set is the ideal knife set that you should purchase. There are two ideal knife sets that you should look at which are the Ginsu Chikara Series Fully Forged 8-Piece Japanese Steel Knife Set and the Victorinox 8-Piece Knife Block Set.
Types of Knives
The Ginsu Chikara Series comes with a 4-inch paring knife, 6-inch boning knife, 8-inch chef’s knives, 8-inch bread knife, 10-inch slicing, 10-inch sharpening steel, a pair of kitchen shears and a slant hardwood block.
The Victorinox Knife Block Set comes with a 8-inch chef’s knife, 7-inch santoku knife, 5-inch utility knife, 5-inch serrated utility knife, 3 1/2-inch paring knife, 8-inch honing rod, a pair of kitchen shears and a bamboo storage block.
I came across a lovely knife. It is breathtaking. And, it is from Victorinox. The 8″ Rosewood Forged Chef Knife is a thing of beauty. But, don’t get me wrong. It has much more than mere good looks.
What Does This Knife Have ?
This knife is a multipurpose gourmet specialist’s knife intended for slashing, mincing, cutting, and dicing with dangerously sharp, laser-tried, decreased blade edge. I’m not trying to give you folks a heart attack but this knife is extremely sharp. And, it holds it’s edge for a long, long time.
A Steller Blade For An Affordable Price
Besides having a near indestructible blade, the handle is a close second in terms of durability. Known for its split resistance and elements shading and grain design, the knife makes sure that your hands have the best handle in its grasps. It doesn’t stain or flake even after extended use.
Ergonomics Are Spot On
This knife also comes in triple-bolt handle configuration that gives ideal weight, adjust, and cutting execution,. Trust me, this knife has the makings of greatness. It certainly feel less like a blade and more like an expansion of the hand.
The Bow On Top
The lifetime warranty is an excellent way to seal the deal. So check it out, I was really impressed by it.
Both knife sets are very sharp but if you must know the Ginsu Chikara’s knives are fully forged and they’re are made out of the finest Japanese Stainless steel. The Victorinox’s blade is made out of High-carbon stainless steel. To ensure these knives stay sharp, always dry them before washing and if you have time, apply a thin layer of vegetable oil on them (not olive oil).
Since it’s made out of fibrox, the Victorinox knives handle helps reduces wrist tension if you’re working with them for a long time. However, the handles on the Ginsu Chikara, which were made by heating, will fit comfortably in your hand even if it’s small. They finished it off with water resistant resin. The balance on both knives are perfect but it all depends on the user and the type you’re looking for. Whether you’re looking for a Japanese line or a Swiss line, these brands are what I’d search for.
