When I was kid I’d go to my dad’s restaurant and stare in awe as the chefs did their magic. I guess this was one of the key motivating factors that made me train as a part-time chef. Fast forward to 2017 and here I was trying to figure out which knives would be best suited for the slicing, dicing and cutting. For some reason, I fell in love with German knives.
Nothing But The Best Kitchen Knives
Ask any chef (where they are a budding one or a pro) and they’d tell you that nothing beats a good kitchen knife. For me, I would recommend the German kitchen knife. Why? Well, these brands have raised the standards of the modern kitchen knife. For a start, they are easier to sharpen, feature a classic allure with riveted handles plus the fact that the blades are made of stainless steel makes them a darling.
Resistant and Resilient
As anybody would do, I was skeptical of the reviews I read about German kitchen knives then slowly I started to soften my stance. German steel is what sets the blades apart from other knives. The blades are made of 80% iron with the rest being carbon and a combination of molybdenum, chromium and vanadium. These elements fight off corrosion and rust keeping the knives sharp for longer.
My Final Knife Pick
Of the many brands available, I loved the Henckel’s Twin Four Star 7-Pcs Knife Set. This collection features a set of 7 blades made with state of the art technology. They are dishwasher safe which implies that you can easily clean them without worrying about possible blunting. The design is ergonomic and comfortable to hold. Of course, you can check out other German brands. The idea here is to get a blade that you can comfortably use. While you are at it, excuse me. Am off to the kitchen to chop some meat.
Why I Love About German Knives By Wusthof
Five months ago, I asked my friends and family about their opinion on the best german knife for the kitchen. I wanted something that would last me a lifetime. They had advised me to look at Wusthof and J.A Henckels knife sets. Through many knife set reviews, I decided to go with the Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Signature 19-Piece Knife Block Set since it’s way more cheaper than the Wusthof brand.
Can you believe that the Wusthof Classic 8-Piece Knife Set with Block is the same price as the J.A Henckels? I admit that the Wusthof’s quality is much better since my mum uses it but the amount of the knives that I needed were more important. Using the knives were very satisfying when it first arrived. True to the excellent this knife set has online. Even after two months, they are still razor sharp. It was a bit lighter than the Wusthof but it’s much better than the knife set I had before. I didn’t regret buying this set as it has served me well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves cooking especially beginners.
