When our readers ask about cheap, high-quality knives (and they do frequently) the first knife we always recommend is the Victorinox chef's knife. It's a great knife for a great price, and it's used in many restaurants too. In fact, we just saw yet another chef recommendation for the Victorinox, and it only validates this choice again.
Read on to see what Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park had to say about his Victorinox knives.
Reader Jessica Glavin shared this recent interview she did with chef Daniel Humm for GQ. Humm is the chef at Danny Meyer's four-star Eleven Madison Park in New York City. He recently won the James Beard Award for Best Chef in New York City, and he's working on his first cookbook. He shared 10 things he can't live without, including his favorite olive oil and granola.
Victorinox knives made his list, too. He says, "I've been using these since my first days in the kitchen. They're such good, quality tools—they're very easy to handle and they keep a sharp edge for a long time. Over all these years, I still rely on them."
