Amazon's brand-new Prime Early Access Sale starts today — and it's no surprise that there are jaw-dropping deals on kitchen knives and cutlery sets. In fact, we've found markdowns on top-notch brands that are even better than the retailer's Prime Day event in July.

For the next 48 hours, Amazon is slashing the prices of some of its most top-rated knives, with prices as low as just $11. With home cook- and editor-approved brands like Wüsthof, Zwilling, Cuisinart, and Calphalon, you can save hundreds of dollars with discounts up to 62% off. From options like bread knives to cut your favorite loaves, full knife block sets for beginners, to electric carving knives for your holiday dinners, there's surely a perfect choice for you, regardless of your preferences.

Though the best deals are exclusive to Prime Members (make sure you're logged in, and start a free 30-day trial if you need to create an account), we've found plenty of on-sale items that anyone can shop. You don't want to wait too long though, since we saw this past Prime Day's knife deals sell out at lightning speed.
