Handcrafted in Japan, this 8-inch chef's knife has a distinctive hammered blade that is both beautiful and practical. Its texture helps release food while chopping, and its 34 layers of ultra-thin stainless steel are strong enough for heavy-duty tasks like slicing chicken bone and chopping squash. Normally $230, you can get it for $60 less right now.

Global's knives are constructed from a single piece of stainless steel and have hollow handles filled with sand to keep them balanced yet lightweight. This four-blade set includes a bread knife, vegetable knife, utility knife, and an editor-approved chef's knife.

Santoku knives are designed with small dimples, or cullens, on the blade to prevent food from sticking. That's one of the reasons they're so handy for speedy chopping, dicing, and mincing. Executive Chef Kyle St. John of Harvest at The Ranch at Laguna Beach called this "a great knife for the price," and now it's just $100.

Effortlessly slice through crusty breads, juicy fruit, and soft cakes with this knife's serrated edge. It is forged from a single piece of strong high-carbon steel and features Wüsthof's unique Precision Edge Technology that promises a 20% sharper blade than similar knives.

Shun Hikari 6-Inch Serrated Utility Knife

For a more nimble blade with the same ability to slice without squishing, Shun's Hikari utility knife is a great option. The 6-inch knife has an edge that is hand-sharpened to a 16-degree angle, which one user said was able to achieve "paper thin tomato slices." It also has a lovely "hornet's nest" blade pattern from 71 micro layers of high-carbon, high-chromium stainless steel.
