Kitchen Knives


Chef's Knives

Chef’s knives, also known as a cook’s knives – are the most popular knives in the world. This is a universal tool for cooking both at home and in a professional kitchen. The length of the chef's knife blade is usually from 18 to 24 cm. However, depending on the requirements, the blade may be longer. Thanks to the universal geometry of the blade, the chef's knife is suitable for any task: slicing, shredding.

There are two common types of the blade shape of the European chef's knife: French and German. Cooking knives in the German style are more powerful and have a uniformly rounded cutting edge; French-style knives have a thinner, straight blade and only at the end bends to the tip.

Most European chef knives are made of stainless steel. In some professional kitchens, this is a prerequisite. Stainless steel knives are hygienic, do not require special care and have a sufficiently hard cutting edge. Some knife manufacturers also make chef knives from carbon steel. Most often, these are not European, but Japanese knife manufacturers. If you want to buy a chef's knife made of high-carbon steel, we recommend that you to check our range of Japanese gyuto chef knives

The classic chef knife has a full tang construction or the shank reaches the end of the handle. This not only makes the knife durable, but also provides balance. Sometimes the heel of a chef's knife is protected by a kind of fuse. This prevents possible cuts from slipping the finger on the sharp heel. As a rule, knives of this design are preferred by beginner cooks.

The thickness of the European chef's knife is usually 2-5 mm. Weight from 170 to 300 grams. The weight depends both on the construction (full tang knives, of course, are heavier) and on the materials of the handle. Professional chef knives have handles made of synthetic materials. It can be a special plastic, micarta, metal or rubber. Wooden handles are also very popular, but more in the home kitchen, as they are not hygienic enough. 

Despite the fact that many manufacturers indicate on the packaging that the knife can be washed in the dishwasher, we do not recommend it. Washing in the dishwasher causes damage to the handle, and the cutting edge is quickly blunted.

In MyGoodKnife store you will find chef's knives made by Zwilling J.A.Henckels, Kasumi, Tojiro, Nesmuk, Seki Kanetsugu, Böker, Victorinox, Miyabi and other famous manufacturers. If you have any questions choosing the chef knife, our customer service will be happy to help you in an online chat or through the contact form. We ship the best chef knives worldwide!

Steak Knives and Steak Knife Sets

A steak knife is a sharp table knife, used for cutting steak. Steak knives usually have a serrated blade - in order to easily cut off a piece of meat. If the blade has a cutting edge without a serrator, the steak knife should be perfectly sharpened. The standard length of the blade of a steak knife is 10-12 cm. Sets of steak knives usually include from 2 to 6 pieces. Such a set will be a wonderful gift for any holiday. You can buy the best table knives and steak knives from us. Our assortment includes traditional and folding steak knives, which are convenient, for example, to take with you to a restaurant. We offer Laguiole steak knives and other French table knives.

Japanese Knives

We offer a wide range of traditional Japanese kitchen knives. Both sharper and thinner, traditional Japanese knives typically use a harder blade steel and a small cutting angle (15 degrees as opposed to 20 degrees). There are a number of different types of Japanese kitchen knives. The most commonly used types are: deba bocho (fish filleting), santoku (all-purpose utility knife), nakiri bocho and usuba (Japanese vegetable knives), gyuto chef knife and yanagi ba (sashimi slicers). Japanese Damascus knives are considered one of the best in the world.

Despite the fact that Japanese knives are very sharp, they can not be used for too hard, as well as for frozen foods. If you try to cut very hard products, pieces of the cutting edge may be break away. Even in factory production, a lot of manual labor is used in the making of Japanese kitchen knives. Therefore, the dimensions stated on the product page may differ slightly from the actual ones. This is not a defect. You can always ask our consultants to additionally measure the knife you are interested in in order to clarify the thickness of the butt or the width of the blade. Please note that due to the design and materials, Japanese kitchen knives are lighter than European ones. This is an advantage, since when working with such a knife, the hand does not get tired. In addition, due to the small weight, the Japanese knife is convenient to hold with any grip.

Japanese hand crafted knives usually have a three-layer construction. The core is made of very hard steel. On both sides it is protected by plates made of softer steel. Thanks to the clads, the blade becomes more flexible and will not break. The clads can be made of multilayer steel (Damascus), stainless steel and even iron. Most Japanese knives are made of carbon steel, which is susceptible to corrosion. Damascus Japanese knives are usually most popular as a beautiful gift. 

How to care Japanese kitchen knives?

Regardless of what materials the Japanese kitchen knife is made of, it cannot be washed in the dishwasher. Hot water and detergents damage the materials of the handle and blade. We recommend washing the knife by hand and wiping it dry immediately after use. For the care of kitchen knives from Japan, we recommend using camellia oil, and for sharpening - whetstones or ceramic sharpeners. The sharpening angle of Japanese kitchen knives is usually 15 degrees. European knives have a larger angle – 20 degrees. Therefore, Japanese knives cannot be sharpened with standard European roller sharpeners.

To protect the blade during storage and transportation, use a special scabbard – saya. They can also be purchased separately in our store. The blade is inserted into the wooden saya and, if necessary, secured with a pin. Before buying a saya sheath for your Japanese knife, we recommend consulting with the sellers to make sure that the protection scabbard is suitable for the selected knife. In our store you can buy online Japanese kitchen knives, handmade by blacksmiths like Yu Kurosaki, Yoshimi Kato, Takeshi Saji as well as famous factories such as Tojiro, Kasumi, Mcusta Zanmai, Global, Miyabi, Seki Kanetsugu and others.

Every Japanese knife has a piece of the soul of the masters who made it. Today, Japanese kitchen knives are rightfully considered the best in the world.

Indeed, almost no housewife or cook can do without a paring knife. According to their purpose, vegetable kitchen knives are divided into Peeling and Paring knives.

    Peeling knife usually has a short blade with a concave cutting edge. The shape of the blade is similar to a crescent (sometimes it is called a Tourne knife). The blade is convenient for cleaning round and oval vegetables and fruits. The shape of such a knife is also called Bird's beak. The blade length of peeling knives usually does not exceed 6-8 cm. There are also more rare variants of the blade shape of a vegetable knife, such as for example "sheep foot".

    Paring knife is more versatile. In fact, it can be used both for slicing and for peeling vegetables and fruits. Such a knife has a straight or rounded cutting edge. The blade length of the paring knife is from 6 to 10 cm.

    Japanese vegetable knives are different from European ones. Analogues of a paring and peeling knives are shotoh and kudamono. Petty knives are slightly longer than ordinary vegetable knives, but they can also be used for slicing and peeling vegetables and fruits. Also, nakiri knives are traditionally used for chopping and slicing vegetables. To choose the right vegetable knife, you need to understand what tasks you will use it for: peeling, slicing, cutting or chopping.

If the cook knife can be washed in the dishwasher, this will be written on the product packaging. However, we do not recommend washing any knives in the dishwasher, as this makes them blunt, and the handle material gets damages.
