If you spent one minute looking at each of Amazon's 10,000+ knife options, it would take you at least 166 hours — just under a week (without a wink of sleep). Sifting through all of Amazon's cutlery to find the best Prime Day deals would be a tall order, but lucky for you, we have spent the past month eyeing the retailer's discounts and know which markdowns are worth shopping. We're pleased to report that there's quite an impressive selection this year.

Starting today, Amazon has slashed prices on chef-loved knife brands like Wüsthof and Zwilling, as well as home cook favorites like Cuisinart and Ninja. Whether you're looking to replace a single blade, add a beautiful block set to your kitchen, or experiment with an electric slicer, you can save hundreds of dollars with discounts as high as 50% off.

Of course, the best knife deals are reserved for Prime members, so make sure you're logged into your account or sign up for a free 30-day trial. And you don't want to spend too long debating since many of today's biggest discounts are Lightning Deals, which last between four and 12 hours (or until supplies sell out).

The best grazing boards are filled with various cheeses, meats, fruits, and vegetables, so you want a knife that can handle them all. This versatile option from Prodyne has a 5.5-inch serrated edge to easily slice through hard cheeses and an open-surface blade to keep softer versions (like feta and Chèvre) from clumping as you cut. Its forked tip makes it a breeze to cut attractive pieces out of semi-soft cheeses, like Havarti or pepper jack, and a full tang to provide extra support for chopping produce like carrots, pears, or apples.

The most dangerous knife is a dull knife. That's why Ninja introduced this innovative block set last year.

Divide that longevity by its current sale price, and you're only paying $25 a year for ultra sharp knives.

It even includes its own work surface — a bamboo cutting board.
