When it comes to buying a kitchen knife set, it's best to spend as much as you can afford. For most people, this is between $100 to $300. In this price range, there are quite a few great sets made by a number of different manufacturers. One of the best in this price range is an Anolon knife set. Anonlon got their start in the kitchen cookware arena, and recently has expanded into cutlery. They have developed a reputation for making top-notch cookware, and it looks as if their knives are going to follow suit.
Anolon knives are crafted of ice-hardened German steel. This high-carbon steel is extremely tough and holds its edge well. They will need to be sharpened occasionally, but not as often as some similar knife sets, which need to be sharpened after every use. Anolon knives can be used multiple times before they need to be sharpened, and they sharpen easily. The blades are stain resistant and aren't prone to rust, but as with all knives, you have to make sure they stay clean and dry. They can be washed in the dishwasher, but it's recommended that you hand-wash and dry them so they will last longer.
We did buy this knife just to see if what the man had said was true. He did not exaggerate. We were hooked. Being lightweight is one thing but the balance of this knife was superb. The design is sleek and modern in appearance but filled with the Japanese tradition of making some of the world's best cutting steel.
