When we test and write about a knife or range, our reviews are broken down into 6 easy to digest categories:
- Overall performance
- Value for money
- Ease of care
You'll find that we're pretty enthusiastic about most of our knives and one of the reasons we stock a relatively small range of knives is to ensure that the overall quality of everything remains high. It's one less thing for you to think about!
It's not unusual for us to recommend buying a knife you like the look of the most or that fits in with your budget because we're comfortable knowing that whatever choice you make - you're investing in a quality item.
That said, if you'd like a bit more help or advice in choosing a knife, we've written a crash course to buying the knife guide for you.
