I own these knives and I recommend them highly — they hold an edge, there’s a nice mix of blades, and they’re on the lower end of the scale, price wise. Rick Moonen is a celebrity chef and this could easily be a money grab, but it doesn’t seem that way to me. It’s a smart collection and all the signs of quality are there.

Here’s a chef’s pro tip: if you’re getting knives, there should always be shears in there. All real cooks use shears a lot in the kitchen. The microplane is another nice touch.

Things I’ll do for a partner who buys me knives:

  • Cook
  • Bake
  • Prep

That means this is a win-win gift. Also, the knives cost $200, so it’s probably a win for Rick Moonen too. You can also add steak knives, if you’re feeling extra generous.

Allison: This is actually the perfect gift for my husband to give me because after I unwrapped it, I’d easily have the tools at hand to stab him repeatedly.

My husband does all the cooking because I am completely worthless domestically. So I cannot imagine the amount of moxy it would take for him to go to a store and decide to get me a gift that is SOLELY given to remind me to cook for him. Actually, now that I think about it, I don’t know if I’d even be mad. I’d frankly be impressed at the level of shade he managed to convey with one single purchase.

That gift would involve so much shade that I think I’d end up with a vitamin D deficiency
