Deglon Meeting Knife Set

Chef Knife Sets – Deglon Meeting Knife Set

I am not much of a cook but I have always been fascinated to watch a chef prepare the food.

 
I wonder how many times have they sliced their fingers, knuckles or even injured themselves more. If you watch a chef, the speed in which they cut vegetables, meat, etc. is astonishing.


How in the world do they cut so accurate and so fast?

I had a chance to talk with a chef a while back and he showed me the technique that most use of folding the fingers in and using their knuckles to guide the blade.

I still am amazed and have great admiration for the skill that they have.

Unique design, in that each knife rests within itself. How cool is that? I’ve never seen anything like this before.


Deglon Meeting Knife Reviews

This knife has 21 total reviews; 14 “5” star, 2 “4” star, 1 “3” star and 4 “1” star.

Surprisingly, this knife set had reviews from a collector and even from a carnival knife thrower. See total reviews

After reading the reviews again, I am not so sure that they are legitimate but that is a choice you will have to make on your own.

I have collected some alternative choices to this knife below.

While the set of knives pictured above seem to be the best, they are also very expensive, so I would say it depends on your budget as to what knife you want to work with.  Below are the 6 top picks from Amazon and I will go over a few points from each one of them.

Review of the Top 6 Picks of Stainless Steel Knives (Pictured above…)

(1). J.A. Henckels International Forged Synergy 8-Inch Chef’s Knife – There are 19 reviews and all but 3 were very happy with their purchase. Overall, the best review was that it was lightweight and yet able to get the job done. See All Reviews

(2).Top Chef by Master Cutlery 5-Piece Chef Basic Knife Set with Nylon Carrying Case – Apparently this set of knives have been used on the TV show “Top Chef.” Out of 42 reviews, most were good and this seems to be a good gift item. See All Reviews

(3). Shun Premier Chef’s Knife – This knife seems to get the most reviews from actual “chefs” and they find it very sharp and comfortable to work with; 55 out of 70 reviews rated it 5 stars. A couple mentioned the price but felt this knife was worth it. See All Reviews

(4). Saber F-11 Working Chef Knives with Chef’s Knife Bag – There are 11 pieces to this set with a case. A lot of good reviews and some were quite surprised at the quality of the knives. Only one “1” star review out of a total of 47. See All Reviews

(5). J.A. Henckels International Forged Premio 8-Inch Chef – As I mentioned before, I’m not fond of cooking so my reviews are purely from research and reading. It seems a lot of the selling points of any of these knives are weight and balance. This has 14 “5” star reviews out of 23. Henckels seems to be a favored brand among a lot of people. See All Reviews

(6). Cuisinart 8 Inch Chef Knife – There weren’t many reviews on this knife. It appears to be the choice of a gift for a new “chef” just learning the skill. See All Reviews

When you make such an investment in your craft, you want to make sure it is well taken care of.  I recommend that you read the manufacturer’s guidelines about sharpening your new knife as I have heard some do not need sharpening at all.
