The most fun part of cooking doesn’t have to be eating what you made. You’ll enjoy your time in the kitchen more if you have tools that make prep work fun. So level up your kitchen arsenal with this Seido Japanese Master Chef Knife Set.

Get these superb kitchen blades for just $139.99 (regularly $429) through August 31.

8 knives to change how cooking feels

Some things you can skimp on and barely notice a change in quality. Not so with kitchen knives. Not only are dull knives more dangerous, but they’re also a pain to use. Who wants a crushed tomato when they could have slices? Of course, you could avoid that by sharpening and honing frequently, but you could save a lot of effort if you just got a set of high-carbon knives forged to keep their edge longer.

This set of eight knives likely contains everything you’ll need for most kitchen preparation methods and materials. It includes:

  • 8-inch chef’s knife
  • 8-inch slicing knife
  • 8-inch bread knife
  • 7-inch santoku knife
  • 7-inch cleaver
  • 6-inch boning knife
  • 5-inch santoku knife
  • 3.5-inch paring knife
  • gift box (which you could use to store the set)

These full-tang forged blades are as much an aesthetic piece as they are a practical one. A Damascus pattern adds a stunning accent to the blade, which has been sharpened into a 15-degree cutting face.

Great knives for the price the[y] are forged and not stamped,” writes verified buyer Nathan P. “Heavy blade and great looking [D]amascus pattern on the blades.”

Save on a Seido Japanese Master Chef Knife Set

A good set of knives could make you start to love cooking. Or they could be a welcome gift for someone who’s already passionate about their kitchen. You still have time to get the eight-piece Seido Japanese Master Chef Knife Set with a gift box for its National Knife Day price of $139.99 (regularly $429). No coupon code needed, but this deal only lasts until August 31, 2022.

Prices subject to change.
