A good knife is essential for a well running kitchen and makes creating a great meal a pleasure rather than a hassle. If you’ve ever had a knife that does not sharpen well and forces you to saw through steak like you’re sawing a board you know the value of a good knife set. Finding a set that is a great value can be a challenge but I believe I have found one that is high quality and reasonably priced. I know how everyone wants to buy the best kitchen knives and this might just be it!
Mercer Culinary Renaissance 6-piece Knife Set
The Mercer Culinary Renaissance 6-piece set is a wonderful knife set that will last. It is made from German steel that will resist rust and corrosion. The blades are as sharp as they are attractive. The taper-ground edges allow for easy honing and gives the blades a long-lasting sharpness so they will not have to be sharpened for a long time. I’m not the best at sharpening knives so I want a set that will not have to be sharpened often and this set is a great one for that.
Durability Of The Knives
When shopping for knives I also looked for the most durable knife set that will be great tools for years. The Mercer Renaissance set has one piece forged blades for excellent strength and sturdiness. The German design has a full tang that goes the entire length of the handle for wonderful balance. The handles are secured by three rivets to ensure they don’t separate from the blades.
Extravagant Display Glass Block
Another high point of the knife set is the holder. I like that they don’t come in a regular wooden block holder but have a beautiful glass holder that sits stylishly on the counter.
Like any good knife set they require good maintenance to keep them that way. For example don’t put them in the dishwasher and don’t soak them for long periods of time. Wash carefully and dry promptly to ensure they last longer.
