Let’s cut to the chase: Every chef needs a good knife set. A good knife maintains the integrity of your ingredients. And it’s versatile. You can count on a knife to chop, dice, peel and slice. Next to a pan and a flame, it’s probably the MVP of any kitchen. If you’re looking to upgrade your collection, here are four knife sets we recommend.
