New Kitchen Knives to Enhance Your Culinary Experience

Having the right set of tools on-hand to slice, dice and chop your way to culinary perfection is essential - and Williams Sonoma has an extensive selection of new kitchen knives to outfit your kitchen like a professional chef. Our collection of new kitchen knives includes fabulous choices from brands like Wüsthof, Zwilling, Laguiole en Abrac and Shun, as well as several others so you can find exactly what you need.

Wüsthof Knives

Wüsthof knives are world-renowned for their sharpness and durability. They're packed with great features such as:

  • Precision-forged blades made from a single piece of high-carbon steel
  • Razor-sharp blades designed for heavy-duty and precision cutting
  • Full tang construction and ergonomically designed handles

Zwilling Knives

Zwilling knives are designed for ease-of-use and convenience. These ultra-sharp blades feature:

  • Friodur ice-hardening technology to create a harder, sharper and more corrosion-resistant blade
  • Sleek, ergonomic handles
  • Laser-cut blade edges at the optimal angle for sharpness

Knife Sets

A complete knife set is the simplest way to get everything you need for your kitchen. A standard set for chefs should include at least one:

  • 4-inch or longer paring knife
  • 5.5-inch or longer prep knife
  • 8-inch chef's knife
  • 8-inch bread knife
  • Kitchen shears

You can also opt for a complete steak knife set to complement your dinner service.

Cooking Knives and Chef's Knives

Every chef - aspiring or professional - needs the right tools at his or her disposal. Cooking knives come in a huge variety of styles, each with its own purpose. The most common include:

  • Paring knives, which are small and short-bladed. They're used for intricate cutting, peeling, mincing and dicing.
  • Bread knives, which feature long, serrated blades. These knives are perfect for slicing into soft bread without crushing it.
  • Carving knives and slicers that measure between 8 and 15 inches long are a necessity for entertaining when you're serving roasted meats. You'll use these thin knives for slicing poultry, roasts, hams and other large slabs.
  • Santoku and Nakiri knives that are designed for chopping, dicing and mincing. Santoku cutlery is typically all-purpose, so you can use it on nearly anything. Japanese-style Nakiri knives are used primarily for chopping vegetables and allow you to cut through to your cutting board without pushing or pulling.
  • Cleavers and boning knives, which are designed for boned meats. Cleavers can chop through bone, while boning knives have thin and flexible blades that allow you to remove the bones and skin from meat.
  • Fruit and veggie knives that have either sharp or serrated edges. These knives are designed for paring and cutting fruit, typically at the table or point of service.

Steak Knives

If you're shopping for new kitchen knives, steak knives are an essential part of what you need. Choose a complete set that includes four, six or eight pieces, depending on how many people you routinely entertain and look for features like these:

  • Slightly curved blades with serration
  • Triple-riveted full tang construction for durability and good balance
  • Wood or synthetic handles designed with an ergonomic grip

New Cutting Boards

Cutting boards are a kitchen staple and they're made from a variety of materials so you can choose the perfect fit for your culinary space. Check out new cutting boards made from hard, stain-resistant surfaces like:

  • Walnut
  • Maple
  • Acacia
  • Synthetic materials
  • Teak

Some cutting boards also come with built-in wells, which can be a tremendous benefit when you want to catch flavorful juices while you cut.

Getting new kitchen knives and new cutting boards can be a wonderful way to broaden your culinary horizons. With world-renowned cutlery brands using the finest materials available, Williams Sonoma is your one-stop shop to find everything you need for the kitchen.
