If you favor expensive watches or designer brands of other products that actually are not superior function-wise, stop reading now. But if you are looking for the absolute best kitchen knives at any price, and these are exceedingly inexpensive, then you cannot do better than the Taiwan Cold Steel 400 Series Kitchen Classic Sub Zero Quench. In particular, the steak knives make the best utility knives ever--their cutting ability is unsurpassed, they last forever, and they are extremely comfortable to use. Our Kitchen Utility Panel (KUP) has been testing them for 25 years as general purpose knives, and they do as good a job today as they did 25 years ago, and a better job than any other knife ever has done.
