Design matters, and that doesn’t just apply to the phones you buy or the apps you depend on. The hand tools you regularly use can make or break your experience, and practically nothing exemplifies this more than your kitchen knives. A sharp knife may be intimidating, but it’s ultimately safer in the kitchen.

So if you’ve been looking for exceptional blades to round out your arsenal, consider these Seido knife sets. They bring great design into the kitchen. They feature forged high-carbon stainless steel blades with 15-degree cutting angles, which should hold a sharper edge longer than traditional stainless steel knives.

Two Japanese knife sets

We’ve got a pair of Japanese Master Chef Knife Sets to choose from. All the blades in both sets are made from Damascus-etched 7Cr17 high-carbon steel. Their Pakka wood handles are crafted for maximum comfort.

Both knife sets come with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. And they’re both great deals, with additional price drops that will disappear soon.
