When home cooks step into the kitchen to start preparing dinner, what's the one tool they reach for first? The kitchen knife. From carefully slicing peak summer tomatoes to chopping hardy onions, a good knife is absolutely key. A good knife block? Even better. We happened upon several professional options in Target's summer sale for as much as 71% off (check out deals on Instant Pot, Keurig, and Sodastream, too). At prices like these, it's impossible to say no to an essential kitchen upgrade.

Zwilling and J.A. Henckels, part of the same premium German knife company, make knife sets that will last for decades (with the proper care, of course). The big benefit to many of these new sets is the self-sharpening knife block that keeps the blades at peak condition simply by pulling them out for use. Instead of maneuvering the usual sharpening steel, the bottom of each knife slot is angled with inset stone to smoothly and safely sharpen the edge. (All sets that don't come with that feature come with a sharpening steel.) Target's cutlery deals section is teeming with options for these great brands, as well as Farberware and Berghoff.

Henckels knives offer high-quality tools that make for excellent gifts for anyone who cooks frequently. Though rarely available for under $300, Target currently has multiple sets for as little as $200. Choose between a basic 7-piece set for 58% off ($200, originally $472), a precision 16-piece set in a rosewood block for $230 (68% off), or a 20-piece self-sharpening block for 71% off ($260, originally $900) with all the bells and whistles.

Zwilling knives are a serious cook's delight, with ice-hardened, high-carbon steel blades forged from a single piece of metal for ultimate durability and strength. Upgrade to a 10-piece easel set for 55% off ($550, originally $1,220), a self-sharpening block set for 51% off, an 8-piece hardwood block for 56% off, or a standard 7-piece beechwood block for 57% off. Read on for the full list and take advantage of anything that catches your eye quickly, as the deals are sure to expire soon.
