Best Rated Chef, EDC and Collector Knives
If you are looking for great knives, you have come to the right place.
Benefits of a good quality EDC (Every Day Carry) knife
Aside from the Free knives and other tactical and survival gear, the most popular knives on this site are the Microtech SOCOM Bravo knife and the Grimsmo Norseman. A long time ago knives were mostly thought of as kitchen knives. Sure, the Swiss Army Knife has been carried in pockets for over 125 years, but overall – a good kitchen knife was a staple in every kitchen. A pocket knife today is a different product all-together. Originally intended for self-defence, today a good folder is used for all sorts of tasks. On the upper scale of EDC knives are the ones that are of very high quality and durability. And of course, they have to be sharp. And – yes – they have to look good. There are thousands of great knifemakers manufacturing excellent products. Some mass produce, others are custom knife makers. On this site you will find a selection of EDC knives we have personally curated to be the best. Some carry a hefty price tag, others are reasonable compared to whet you get.
Are good chef’s knives worth it?
I have two chef knives and wouldn’t be without them. The most important thing is keeping them adequately sharp – no matter how much you spent on a quality chef’s knife. It is important that you learn how to sharpen and maintain your knife blades. Prices for quality kitchen knives start at maybe $30, and there seems to be no end to be seen. Note that price doesn’t necessarily translate to a “better” knife. Somewhere in the middle is probably a safe bet. Then there is the look and feel. Some, like me like the wooden handles the Japanese knives are famous for. Others prefer the more traditional black handles.
