Best Kitchen Knife Brands [2020 Edition]

Posted on

From slicing and dicing to carving and boning, every cook needs a decent knife. In fact, a reliable blade that retains a sharp edge and feels ergonomically sound is one of the most important kitchen tools you’ll ever invest in.

Always choose a knife that has some heft to it and don’t forget to check that the blade does not bend easily. Most importantly, opt for quality over quantity (forget those too-good-to-be-true knife set deals that come with an ab cruncher). Purchase fewer knives, but invest in the best quality you can afford as it’ll pay itself off in the long run.

For culinary dunces or guys preparing to fill their kitchen, check out these super fine knife brands from around the world.

It’s simply a time to sit and reflect, to be still and focus on breathing and being. It’s a daily reset, a way of allowing happiness in and melting the stress away.”

Edition hotels across the globe offer four unique, in-room and on-demand meditation experiences, each to suit different types of people and lifestyles.

“Uplifting to help you start the day to calming and
