  • The short-list of mattress brands that we considered (and why).
  • What mattress brand we chose (and why).

The Perfect Knife Set

I recently did an unsponsored product review of this J.A. Henkels knife set, and it is my top recommendation for anyone looking for the perfect knife set. Anyone who cooks at all knows that a set of good knives is essential. Here are a few reasons that this knife set receives my highest rating.

  • Brand: J.A. Henckels International (Zwilling)  is one of the most recognized names in knives.
  • Quality: Stainless steel graphite blades look and feel like commercial quality knives.
  • Function. The 7-piece set includes knives, solid woodblock, and self sharpener.
  • Price. This price rivals anything I’ve seen for such a quality set.

I link to my perfect knife set below, along with 2 similar sets that are far more expensive. This set would be a FABULOUS gift for a newly married couple, a college bound student, or anyone looking to update to a new set of knives.

In the video below, you can see exactly what the knives look like and what is included in the set.
