Best Kitchen Knife Sets
Nesting Chef’s Knives
Designed by Mia Schmallenbach for Deglon, the Deglon Meeting Knife Set won first prize at the 5th European Cutlery Design Award, this nesting knife set takes kitchen cutlery to a whole new level. Looking at this set of knives it looks sleek and stylish but also a little scary with the sharp edges and points of the knives all set into each other. As well as looking the part they also have a sort of puzzle and intrigue about them when it comes to putting them back, which you do carefully and delicately. Constructed from a high-quality stainless steel the entire set looks stunning.

Nested one inside the next, the solid stainless steel set contains 3.25-inch paring knife, a 4.25-inch utility knife, an 8-inch chef’s knife, and an 8.75-inch slicer, each slotted within the other, all set inside a solid stainless steel rectangle base/case. When all nested they look like a stylish plaque that should be on the wall, or some sort of trophy, they really do look stunning and very eye catching. Although they would look great on a wall they must be laid flat on your work top or in a drawer to ensure the knives don’t slip out, with them all being nested it would be a disaster waiting to happen!
With them being nested it makes them great for kitchens where space is a premium, their space saving design means there is no need for a large clunky knife block, or them taking up large amounts of space in your drawer.
To remove a knife from the set, simply press down near the tip of the blade which will told the knife and handle upwards allowing you to grip. Then just lift it up from the other end.
The way they are displayed makes them an ideal gift for people that love to cook and like their design.
The Deglon Meeting Knife Set is a beautiful design and certainly looks the part, with design and style like this they don’t come cheap with a price tag of over $600.
ILoveHandles Chops board
If your kitchen is full of stylish home gadgets that fit into the sleek, modern category, then the ILoveHandles Chops board and knife set could well be an addition you need to your life. Looking like a stylish slim knife block there is more to the ‘Chops’ than meets the eye.
This sleek design combines a knife rack and chopping board stand into one. The main stand is made from a striking black frame that looks like a picture frame, at the top you can slot in your knifes for storage when not in use, either side to this is where the chopping boards can be stored. Thats right, with this you get 2 chopping boards, within these are small magnets that hold the board sin place and upright on the stand to keep them in place. Clever! The boards also act as a case and the walls to the knife storage, otherwise the blades are out in the open.
The knife rack is designed to store knives out in the open with their blades exposed when the cutting boards are taken out, you can easily see the blades allowing you to easily know which knife you want and which to pull out.
This is a very stylish set and will look great on any worktop, no need to hide your chopping board away in the cupboard or drawer, it can be beautifully displayed and may not even be obvious as it would just look like a knife block.
The Chops board from ILoveHandles has a patent pending and has only recently been released.
