Here's How to Get Our Favorite Knife Brands on Deep Discount During Amazon Prime Day

Markdowns are up to 60% off.
Each product we feature has been independently selected and reviewed by our editorial team. If you make a purchase using the links included, we may earn commission.

Here at Food & Wine, we're always ready to talk about kitchen knives. From weighing the benefits of traditional hefty versus lightweight blades to building the perfect countertop collection, we see our razor-sharp slicers as a non-negotiable for cooking. And our latest obsession is Amazon Prime Day's fantastic price cuts on the humble kitchen workhorse.

While quality cutlery can cost hundreds of dollars, if not thousands, Amazon's biggest sale of the year offers major markdowns on some of our favorite brands and blades. From German-made Zwilling J. A. Henckels to Japan's Global, Prime Day has savings up to 60% off. 

Here are the nine best Amazon Prime Day knife deals to shop right now:

A quality chef's knife is an absolute must for a wide range of kitchen tasks, from mincing delicate herbs to hacking through bulky cabbage. You can pick up one of our favorites from J.A. Henckels right now for 42% off, or one Amazon's best-selling chef's knives for only $28 (originally $40). And thick sourdough boules and delicate pastries are a piece of cake to slice with Mercer's 10-inch bread knife. It's made of a single piece of high-carbon Japanese steel, which is incredibly durable, and is 63% off.  

Knife sets are a convenient way to build up your cooking arsenal, and Prime Day has tons of options. We're partial to Global's 3-piece starter set, which comes with a 3.5-inch paring knife, a 5-inch prep knife, and an 8-inch chef's knife. Or you can upgrade your cutlery collection with these marked-down stainless steel steak knives from J.A. Henckels

While some of these discounts are open to everyone, most are exclusive to Prime members. To get full access to the sale, make sure you're signed into your Prime account, or sign up for a 30-day free trial here

Keep scrolling to shop the impressive Prime Day knife deals. But make sure to check out quickly—the event ends on June 22 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
