About this deal
Selecting a chef’s knife has a lot to do with personal preference, but we’re confident that the Mac MTH-80 is one of the most widely appealing knives available. And over the many years of my culinary career, I’ve cooked in fine-dining restaurants, brewpubs, small cafés, private homes, and test kitchens, where tens of thousands of pounds of vegetables, fruit, meat, and fish have crossed my cutting board.

She conducted the most recent side-by-side chef's knife test as well as the most recent test for serrated knives and butcher knives. Our experts have been able to use this knife for long stints without sharpening and appreciate the good grip and weight of this model.

BACKED BY AN INCREDIBLE COMMUNITY ★ Launched on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, our work is backed by hundreds of avid home cooks and professional chefs. If your knife is comfortable to grip and razor-sharp, you can chop ingredients faster and with more control (and therefore more safely).There are other European knife traditions, such as French knives, that have a similar knife design that's only slightly less curved. It feels more agile than the German models we’ve tested and more durable than the thin Japanese gyutos. Like our runner-up pick, the Tojiro F-808, it lacks knuckle clearance for large hands, but the F-808 is a better value. What we liked: This chef's knife from Mercer, a North American producer that specializes in German-style kitchen knives, did well in all the tests.
