CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

This overall score is made up of cutting performance (70%), initial sharpness (15%) and sharpness after blunting test (15%).

Cutting performance View more details.

We assess the knives' performance by slicing and dicing various foods including: carrots, cucumber, parsley and steak.

Initial sharpness View more details.

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 View more details.

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.
