Sharpen Your Cooking Skills with the Best Knives

Ask any chef which kitchen tool is the most crucial in their toolkit, and we bet most will say a quality kitchen knife. Whether that knife is a precisely sharpened everyday chef’s knife, a task-specific set of cheese knives or a hollow-edge nakiri knife for fast, skilled slicing, every cook has his or her favorite that they reach for the most often. At Sur La Table, we specialize in outfitting the best chefs with the best knives. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the business of elegantly slicing delicate seafood, brazenly butchering large cuts of meat or quickly prepping veggies for an easy weeknight dinner, you’ll find the perfect knife for any purpose when you shop at Sur La Table.

Legacy brands like Wüsthof, Bob Kramer, Zwilling J.A. Henckels, Shun, Miyabi, Victorinox and more ensure heirloom quality to get you excited about food prep. From German-engineered kitchen cutlery to Japanese knives known for their ultimate precision and handling, you’ll find them all at Sur La Table.
