1. Shun Classic 8″ Chef’s Knife from Williams-Sonoma
Whether you’re just starting to stock your kitchen or need to make an upgrade, we’re going to let you in on a little secret: you really only need one quality chef’s knife to get most things done. Our go-to is the Shun Classic 8″ Chef’s Knife because it’s crafted with 34 micro-thin layers of stainless steel, is ridiculously sharp, and also incredibly durable—the comfortable PakkaWood handle is designed to resist moisture.
But just because this premium chef’s knife is sturdy, doesn’t mean you don’t need to treat it with respect. Take good care of this sleek blade—get it properly sharpened and never leave it out to air-dry—and you’ll have it forever.($149.95, williams-sonoma.com)
