When it comes to essential kitchen tools, a knife is probably the only thing you have to use every single time you prepare food. (Yep, even a stove is optional!) Because no matter if you’re making a soup, stir-fry, or smoothie, most recipes likely call for carving, chopping, slicing, or dicing something.

The very best knives are sturdy, comfortable to hold and use, and stay sharp for hundreds of slices. And when we’re looking for an unfussy, dependable German-style slicer, Wüsthoff knives are one of our go-tos. Made of a solid blend of stainless steel with a satisfying grip, they’re the heavy-duty workhorses we turn to for dicing onions, filleting fish, and slicing crusty baguettes.

And if you don’t already own one, now is the best time to get yourself a knife or two: you can get all Wüsthof Classic series knives for up to 60 percent off from Sur la Table and Williams Sonoma. But if you’d like to grab a grad gift or an extra knife to add to your block, act fast—the sale ends this Friday, May 17!

It’s a great idea for recent graduates heading to college or the “real world,” as one ecstatic customer described. “I recently gave this set as a gift to my college-age Colorado daughter. She has become a skilled cook and needed a GOOD set of knives. She loves them! I think this is the perfect set for us (I have had the same set for years) with just the right selection of pieces—not too many and not too few. I wouldn't change a thing. Perfect!”
