Best Kitchen Knife Sets From Germany

Good Looking, Popular and Tough as Hell

German kitchen knives are very popular among professional chefs and home cooks. This is because German made knives are not only durable but are also easier to sharpen compared to other knives.

Aside from their classic allure, German knives are made with 80 percent iron, 0.5 percent carbon, and 15 percent a combination of chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium. These make the knives resistant to corrosion and deterioration. That being said, here are some of our favorite kitchen cutlery sets from Germany.

He spent a lot of time losing and breaking knives and other EDC gear on location shoots before starting Nothing But Knives. He has reviewed and tested hundreds of both outdoor and kitchen knives over the course of the last six years, and he was mostly sober while testing and reviewing.
