"Best Bang for Your Buck!"
"Find out why this set is rated the best REASONABLY PRICED knife set on the internet!"

 

Walk into nearly any cutlery store in the world today and you're bound to find four brands of knives: Wüsthof, Henckels, Global, and Shun.

The salesperson will quickly try to convince you to spend up to $300 on a knife.

Don’t get us wrong; all of these brands offer good knives and we don’t think $300 is too much to spend on a tool that you will use every day and expect to last for decades.

But you don’t need to spend that much to get an excellent knife set.

And if you’re ready to spend less than $120, you can get a fantastic piece that will indeed last decades and make you feel invincible in the kitchen.

We get mail from readers all the time looking for a decent knife set that will perform and and at the same time, be affordable.

"Do we know any cheaper brands that are realiable?"

Recenctly, as we were updating our knife reviews, we began to focus on finding just one reasonably priced knife set that actually lived up to all the informercial praise and hype that rarely holds true with many of the expensive high end brands.

We wanted the best we could get for our money and we didn't want to spend $300 plus!

Just one knife set worth raving about that would not put our wallets on a diet. Our criteria was simple. The knife set had to be:

Great looking
Have a solid feel (weight and balance)
Sharp
Durable &
Reasonably priced

Simple right? Just kidding. We knew right from the start that finding a match would not be easy at all. There are so many junk knives out there to choose from, you could end up spending a lot of money buying knives that will rust or become dull within a month.

So we decided to take it upon ourselves to do the research and find out what consumer reviewers from all over the internet had to say about the best discounted knife set on the market today.

But it was only the other day when we finally got around to looking into little known brands in more detail, that we eventually landed on a nugget!

We FINALLY found The Winning Knife Set!



So what is the knife set that hundreds of reviewers have been raving about for so long? The knife set that came out on top was ChicagoCutlery Fusion 18-Piece Set including Honey Maple Wood Block

Not only does this knife set meet all of our criteria mentioned above, but the set has also been consistently given a 5 star rating by consumers online. A true gem!

Let's take a look at the knife set in detail.

Whats in the box?

The box contains all the basics of a good knife set and more including a 3-inch Peeler, 5-inch utility knife, 3-1/4-inch parer, eight 4-1/4-inch Flatware Steak Knives, 7-3/4-inch serrated bread knife , 5-inch Partoku, 7-inch Santoku knife, an 8-inch slicer, a 7-3/4-inch chef's knife and an 8-inch sharpening steel all held in a beautiful Honey Maple storage block.

How Much Should You Pay for this knife set?

The price of this knife set has remained around $149 - $175 for most online shops. Due to its popularity, it is rare to find it selling at cheaper prices.We do check prices regularly though and have always found the best price at Amazon. However, because this set is in high demand, it is often sold out so if you see it in stock on Amazon and at a good price, it is worth getting.

How sharp are they?

These knives are extremely sharp. You can test one by holding it loosely by the handle and pulling it over a tomato without applying pressure. Any knife from this set will slice through like butter.

What are the handles like?

The black handles are made thick and secure using onyx polymer. This not only makes for handsome handles, but they are also comfortable to hold.

Are they Dishwasher Safe?

No. We recommended hand washing any knife you own. They will look better for longer.

How long do the blades last?

This set is simply amazing. The storage block not only stores your knives, but comes with an in-block sharpener!
Most users report an average use of 10 to 15 years.




Does it Come With a Warranty?

Yes. A limited lifetime warranty is included and covers defects in material and workmanship under normal home use from date of original purchase.

Any Complaints?

Out of hundreds of reviews, we could harldy find anything bad said about this knife set. A small number of people mentioned that the steak knives aren't always sitting perfectly straight in the storage but felt that it was a minor detail that did not take away from the great quality of the knives. Also, a a few people experienced some discoloration after throwing them in the dishwasher several times but that can be avoided by simply hand washing the knives. So we recommend that you hand wash your knives to help keep them looking as good as new over the years.

Where can i get the best price?

We check prices regularly for this knife set and by far the best price has always been at Amazon. However, because they are generally the cheapest, it often sells out quickly, so don't think about it for too long if you see they have some in stock. Overall, for the price that they charge for the set, you will find no better set of knives.

Let me show you what current owners have to say about it.

philyodaddy "Say Hello to the Bad Guy".,
I will start by saying that I purchased these for $99 which at $5.5 represents a great value-per-knife ratio

Here is a ranked order of things I look for in a Knife Set:
1) Sharp as hell
2) Sharp as hell
3) Sharp as hell
4) looks pretty

That is the entire list. I am not nearly proficient enough in the kitchen to have other requirements. The knives are sharp as hell. They cut the crap out of stuff. I enjoy showing off their sharpness to amazed visitors (more realistically, I just show my girlfriend over and over again). Look how easy it is to cut through lemons! You try! Case closed. They are also a pretty good looking knife set. I'm not sure I needed 18 knives, because I only know what about 8 of them do, but it is impressive looking and really makes people know that I'm the boss.

I purchased them about 1 month ago, so I cannot objectively weigh in on the rust-issue (I have none at this point). Therefore my only real con at this point is that this point is that the block is really big and awkwardly fits in my small New York City kitchen. Please note the massive size before you follow me to sharpcity.

Great product. Excellent value. Incredibly sharp and very good looking set and block. The rubber grip handles are ideal and the blades are appropriately weighted. Incredibly satisfied with this investment.

Laura_ash87.,
These are first & foremost, VERY SHARP! It feels solid,no slip but not bulky! LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They are so beautiful and you can't see the detail of the slots in the wood block but in person they are pretty! I am so happy I choose these!

Matthew J. Kelly "Twocastles".,
No complaints here. I am not a chef, nor do I cook often. But these are very sharp, and have stayed so for some time, despite my clumsy slicing and chopping. And the sale price I got? For this set, I feel like I have $400 expert cutlery for next to nothing. !

Chef Jim.,
As a certified chef, I have a very pricey set of knives I use for work, but I wanted a good looking well made set for my kitchen at home. These knives have a nice weight, excellent hardness (keeps sharp under heavy use), and they offer a good grip even with wet hands. The bamboo block adds a very nice decorative touch. The knives will require frequent sharpening IF you use them a lot, but for daily use in a home kitchen they will hold an edge for a long time.
The package claims "Dishwasher safe". I don't recommend putting them in a dishwasher. It will dull them and water will probably get in between the metal and the rubber of the handles. Wash them by hand with hot soapy water and they will last forever. Be very careful, the factory edge on these knives will shave your arm, in other words THEY ARE EXTREMELY SHARP! For the serious amateur home chef/cook these are a great buy. They will stand up to daily use and keep a good sharp edge, as will just about any Chicago Cutlery knives.
