Zwilling Pro Chef's Knife
This classic chef’s knife feels weighty, and a little blade-heavy compared to the delicate Japanese knives. It’s another classic design that some might call uninspiring, and the curved blade and weight makes it effective as a rocker but less so for finer cuts.

Global GS-89A 30th Anniversary Cook's Knife
Mega-popular thanks mainly to edgy styling, Global’s 30th anniversary knife is a cracker. Global fill the hollow handle with sand to achieve pinpoint balance, and the steep edge makes for extremely thin, precise knife work. The granton edging is a nice bonus too, especially for the price, which has recently halved if you shop around.

Wusthof Classic IKON Cook's Knife
Wusthof’s knife immediately feels heavy in the hand. It’s robust enough for heavy duty chopping and cleaving, but it may tire your arm out over longer periods. The riveted handle and clean flowing design is classic - if you’re after a rough and ready knife that doesn’t need constant attention, this is the guy.
£84.95 | In The Haus
TOG Gyuto Chef's Knife
The antimicrobial copper layers in the blade and the laser-etched Kebony handle make the Gyuto a thing of real beauty. It handles much lighter than the two German blades, but it is precise and well balanced. Top quality, but a mark off for the astronomical price-tag.
