Here at the Strategist, we know that finding the “best” product really depends on exactly who you ask — which is why we’ve devoted a new series to squeezing in as many informed, trustworthy opinions as possible. And we’ve come up with dozens of ways to do this, among them: surfacing reader reviews from across the internet, taking quick polls (among our most insane friends and fellow shopping-obsessed Strategist editors), and partaking in some advanced internet snooping.

With that, we’ve rounded up the best chef’s knives — generally defined as knives with a wide blade between eight and ten inches in length — according to everyday people, professional chefs, food writers, and even a Top Chef Junior finalist. These knives run the gamut, from a $10 knife that cuts like a dream to a price-upon-request knife hand-forged in the Appalachian Mountains. Whether you’re willing to spend a lot or a little, there’s a chef’s knife for you.
