Best chef knife & cutting boards

Alex and I are often asked about the best kitchen tools. And every time we answer, “A good sharp chef’s knife!” A good knife can drastically improve your time in the kitchen, and lasts for years (we’ve had our chef knives for 10 plus years). Here are some of the knives we recommend, as well as cutting boards and the best knife sharpener. These recommendations are perfect for outfitting your own kitchen, or great gifts for a wedding registry or someone who loves to cook!

  • 7″ Chef’s Knife — our best knife recommendation
  • 10″ Chef’s Knife — our favorite large knife
  • 8″ Chef’s Knife — our favorite affordable knife
  • Paring Knife
  • Serrated Knife / Bread Knife
  • Non-Slip Wood Cutting Board (used in the video!) or Non-Slip Bamboo Cutting Board
  • Non-Slip Plastic Cutting Board
  • Knife Sharpener
  • Drawer Knife Organizer — this is how we store our knives, and it’s even slicker than a knife block
