Chefs’ favorite knives

April Bloomfield with knife

The Kitchn recently pointed out this article from, which asked six chefs to name their favorite knives: April Bloomfield, Marc Forgione, Jesse Schenker, Stuart Brioza, Chris Shepherd, and Stephanie Izard. The answers are an unquestioned victory for the Japanese – all of the knives are of Japanese origin – with strong and thin seeming to be the most attractive attributes. 

Unfortunately, expensive is also an attribute. So if you’d like some more ideas that are less of a splurge, the Kitchen has this article on recommended knives.

    I like Global knives. Japanese, stainless steel, one piece.
    You can often find good deals on eBay if you shop.
