An external specialist laboratory assessed the knives for their sharpness when new and unused. The higher the score, the sharper the knife.

Sharpness after blunting test
Each knife was subjected to 50 slicing strokes into an aluminium rod using a purpose-built mechanical burnishing machine. Models with higher scores are more resistant to blunting from repeated use.

Claimed handle material
A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
