Best Cutlery Grandpa


That's me with my grand-kids in the image to the left.

My wife and I have friends who are wine snobs (we hide the Black Box Merlot when they come over) and they also happen to be kitchen knife snobs.

We love them dearly but were always embarrassed when they were helping out in our kitchen and used our dull, big-box store knives as they always complained about how dull our knives always were.

So I used their knives (Henkels) once when we were in their kitchen and realized how bad our knives actually were.

They had a quality set that seemed balanced, felt nice in my hand and the edges were amazing as they cut with ease.

It was time to explore Consumer Reports, Shopsmart and other rating services including a well rated Rachael Ray Set in our search of a quality set for our kitchen.

Our mission for this site is to find only 4-star rated or better Cutlery sets to review and then spotlight these 4-star+ sets with 10 or more ratings as this is a better indication of quality cutlery reviews than a couple of reviews offering a 5-star rating.

There will always be a disgruntled reviewer and we take that into consideration as these folks are going to find the problems.

They will find the problems because that is what they are looking for.

A lot of people are happy with purchasing a quality cutlery set and tend to over-look any negatives in the product.

We want you to see it all and will attempt to show you some of the issues that come up regarding top level cutlery sets.

We love Amazon as it is a great place to buy cutlery with it's free shipping and you won't be using up that $4 a gallon gas or that precious "time factor" that we all seem to be running short of these days.

Some cutlery brands you will see are:







One of the first things we noticed was what they call the "tang".

The picture below shows a cheap knife on the bottom and a quality knife at the top.

  • The knife at the top of the image is strong as the metal flares to match the handle.
  • It is from the highly rated $90 Chicago Cutlery Fusion 18-Piece Knife Set.
  • The "tang" goes all the way to the end of the handle.
  • This knife handle is soft to the touch.
  • The Handle is comfortable in your hand and feels safe.
  • The bottom knife looks and feels weak as it enters the cheap plastic handle.
  • You can't tell how far the 'tang" goes into or through the handle.
