No matter if you’re a fresh-faced beginner or a seasoned pro, there are a few knives that absolutely every home cook needs: a chef’s knife, a serrated knife, and a paring knife. With those three, you can tackle any slice under the sun, from carving a chicken and peeling potatoes to sawing through a crusty sourdough loaf. You can research and buy each knife one by one, of course, but we just found an incredible deal on two of the three that’s too good to pass up: Zwilling’s top-rated chef and paring duo are 53% off.

Based in Solingen, Germany, Zwilling J.A. Henckels is renowned for its premium forged cutlery. For nearly 300 years, the company has made top-of-the-line stainless steel blades, and this set is no different. Part of Zwilling's Four-Star line, the knife duo was designed in collaboration with professional chefs to bring expert-level tools into home kitchens.

The 4-inch parer and 8-inch chef’s knife are made from high carbon stainless steel that undergoes Zwilling’s signature ice-hardening technique to ensure both blades stay extra sharp and rust-free for thousands of slices. The knives’ fully forged construction provides a sturdy and seamless transition from bolster to handle, while those ergonomic handles are comfortable enough to use for long periods of time. 

Shoppers who have bought and tried out the Zwilling duo say both tools are great kitchen helpers. “The ultimate all-purpose knife set,” a reviewer wrote on Zwillling’s site. “You can use both knives for any task, whether it’s peeling fruit with the paring knife to slicing and dicing with the chef.” 

Another added how comfortable the knives are to hold: “Even though the knife is forged, this line provides a lightweight feel. The fully molded handle is great, you don’t have to worry about rivets coming out over time.”

Typically priced at $213, you can snag this duo on sale for only $100 at Zwilling.com. Plus, the company is offering free fast shipping on the set. It’s an incredible deal—especially with Mother’s Day around the corner.
