As a foodie, an important aspect of the kitchen are having amazing knives that can cut through anything and of course have an amazing aesthetic look. I’ve been browsing around for a knife set for the past year waiting for some knives to drop in price as it gets closer to the Winter holidays. I got them at Canadian Tire for 75% off. $329.99 sounds a lot better than $1,399.99. The sale is on till Nov 24th.
I was stalking various knife brands but Lagostina Artiste 3-Ply Hand Hammered Knife Set stood out to me since it has a sleep one piece look rather than the black handles like other knives.
These are made from Japanese 3-ply stainless steel and blades are hand-hammered to create air pockets that prevent food from sticking. Plus, they match my appliances.
The blades for all the knives are very sharp, so there is a little bit of plastic at the ends to protect yourself as you unpack them.
Whats in the box?
The set comes with:
- 3.5″ pairing knife
- 4.5″ utility knife
- 7″ santoku knife
- 8″ chef knife
- 8″ bread knife
- set of six 4.5″ steak knives
- sharpening steel
- wooden block
The knives are curvy, smooth feeling and has a good balance to them when holding. Easy to cut through meat, veggies and fruit. The Santoku is the ideal multi-function knife out of all the knives in the set. A great everyday knife.
They advise you to hand wash only, do not soak, and dry with clean towel before storage. Never put them in a dishwasher as the heat could warp and dull the blades.
We had them in our Thanksgiving meal this year too as my parents have the same set of knives. I was just a bit behind to purchase them myself. it cut through all the roast with ease and looked great.
For the price, it’s definitely worth it if you can catch it at 75% off. I’ve seen knives sell for the price of this entire block set. I’m in love with these set of knives, but you have to make sure you take care of them so it prolongs their life. If they end up warping within a year, Canadian Tire offers a free 1 year exchange warranty redeemable at any of their stores.
