Professional quality knives
Use the right knife for every cooking task with the best options from Zwilling, Miyabi and Zyliss.
There’s no arguing the point: good knives make all the difference for fast, efficient food preparation. But when it comes to finding the right knife for your needs, it can be a little tricky – there are just so many to choose from, and each one is designed to perform specific tasks. Make a start on building a versatile food prep toolkit with three of the most commonly used knives – santoku, serrated and paring – from three of the world’s leading brands.
Zwilling knives are made from high carbon stainless steel and are heat treated for strength. With lasercontrolled sharpness and ice-hardened Friodur blades, these hard-working German knives are perfect for home cooks who intend to use them for basic tasks, like chopping fruits and vegetables and cutting through small bones. Zwilling knives are durable and ideal for anyone who is unlikely to maintain their knives weekly, and prefers to clean them in the dishwasher.

Miyabi knives are produced in Seki, which has been the heart of Japan’s sword industry since the 14th century. Created with a FC61 Fine Carbide steel commonly used in razors, which speaks to its sharp edge and durability, each handcrafted blade is covered with 46 layers of Damask steel for beauty as well as function. These knives are best suited to cooks who rely on precise results, often serve raw meats (sushi and carpaccio) and like to experiment with decorative cutting.
