What to do when you’ve got a lot of chef knives? Compare them, of course. My personal opinion on a bunch of blades in varying budget categories, and as much fun as I had making these videos, I still recommend you hold the knife yourself before you buy one.

Dalstrong Knives:
Sternsteiger Achilles:

The Mercer knife is the culinary school student starter pack? My culinary school gave us a full set of Wusthof classics for $150 tacked onto our tuition.

Zachery Koerper says:

Sous chef here from compass group I went through Henckels from victorianox, to Mercer to dalstrong and dalstrong shogun series has been great for me

Rodney Brown says:

I’m Interested in any free knife I can get, because I am just starting, but it does look attractive!

mad thumbs says:

First review of Dalstrong that I’ve seen the balance, and wavy blade issues addressed. The Shogun 8″ chefs knife I almost bought but couldn’t get over the German profile on a hard steel narrow edge angle knife. If people want good cheap Japanese knives; I’d recommend Tojiro DP (except the Sujihiki). -No frills, poor F&F (that can be fixed) and great blades!

bomaite1 says:

Give me the Achilles, please. It looks really cool and I know the Germans generally make good stuff.

Steve Stevie says:
