To help you out, we’ve rounded up the best Amazon Prime Day deals on knives. Here are some of the can’t miss deals we’ve found.
The seven blades included in this knife set are certainly worthy of a prime place on your countertop — just look at their edges and intricate, dimpled pattern. But the set is more than just something to stare at. Each knife is made of 67-layer Damascus steel, features a well-weighted ergonomic Pakkawood handle, is corrosion-resistant, and intended to last months without needing sharpening. The set, normally $300, includes an 8-inch chef knife, 7-inch santoku knife, 6.7-inch Nakiri knife, 5-inch utility knife, 3.4-inch fruit knife, and kitchen shears, all of which are housed in a acacia wood knife block.
Looking for a knife set that's more affordable but still gets the job done? This six-piece set from Japanese Brand Kai is a solid choice. The knives in this set, including a paring knife, citrus knife, 6-inch utility knife, eight-inch chef's knife, honing steel, and knife block, are comfortable to hold, resistant to stain and corrosion, and hand-sharpened.
In the market for a single chef's knife? This rosewood-handled chef's knife, normally $47, is more than capable of all your slicing, mincing, and dicing needs. The stainless steel eight-inch knife is durable and well-built; it's able to handle big tasks but also those that are more delicate. Treat it well and it will last you for years.
Shun kitchen knives are some of the finest blades around. This Shun starter knife set, which includes a 4-inch paring knife, 6.5-inch utility knife, and 8-inch chef's knife — pretty much everything you need to get the job done — would normally run you $538 but is on sale today for $375. If you're looking to make an investment in long lasting, high-quality kitchen tools, this is a hell of a deal.
Normally $45, this already well-priced folding knife is on sale today for $37. Made of extra strong 420HC stainless steel, the 2.4-inch blade is non-reflective and very sharp. Kershaw's Speedsafe assisted opening system allows for quick, one-handed opening but the secure locking mechanism makes sure it stays closed until you need it.
With a blade specifically designed to slice open annoying and stubborn clamshell packaging, The Dime already has our vote as a worthy investment. Its small and light construction, plus array of top notch features – including actual spring-loaded scissors – make this butterfly-opening all-in-one a no brainer for anyone looking for a small multitool. Already well-priced at $25, it's on sale today for $17.
We've been fans of the Gerber Center Drive since it released. Why? While most multi-tools' driver-attachments are terrible at actually driving screws, the Center Drive corrects this problem. The tool's driver is aligned on the tool's center axis, which means works like a real screwdriver in terms of tension and rotation. It uses standard-size bits (flathead included) and rocks a magnetic 1/4-inch socket to ensure they don’t end up bouncing across the floor every time you begin your approach. The multitool also boasts spring loaded pliers and a 3.25-inch knife blade, both of which open with a flick of the thumb, as well as a pry bar with a nail puller, serrated blade, awl, a file, wire cutters, and most importantly, a bottle opener. The whole thing measures 4.7-inches closed, 6.6-inches open, and weighs 9.5 ounces. Today, it's on sale for $84.
