More on the Best Knives

Last week I posted on what I thought was the best kitchen knife for cutting fruits and vegetables. Yesterday I came across an article discussing Good Housekeeping's best picks on Delish, a new food website recently launched by MSN and Hearst Digital Media.

Here are their 7 top contenders for various categories:

  • Best All-Around: W├╝sthof-Trident of America Classic Series 4582/20 (about $94)
  • Bantamweight Winner: Lamson & Goodnow Lamsonsharp ($112.50)
  • Comforto Edgecraft Chef's Choice: Trizor Professional 2000/00 ($159.95)
  • Test-Kitchen Favorite: Friedr. Dick Premier Plus Forged Chef's Knife 10-8144721 ($112.95)
  • Budget Choice: Chicago Cutlery The Walnut Tradition 42SP (only $12.99!)
  • High-tech Handle: Zwilling J. A. Henckels Five Star ($129)
  • Heavyweight Champ: Chicago Cutlery Legacy Forged ($92)

My Kyocera ceramic knife isn't on there :(, but I still love it. Of course, there will always be subjectivity. This weekend I was at Williams-Sonoma and a staff member there recommended Global knives as the best...

Either way, a good kitchen knife can work wonders. It got me excited about cooking again, and that is always a good thing.

I own the Wusthof Grand Prix II 10" cook's knife, and it's great. A quality knife makes cooking so much more enjoyable. Plus, a bad, dull knife is more dangerous than a good, sharp one.
