Editor's Notes

November 08, 2018:

Many knives on the market claim to made for making sushi, but the Japanese and professional chefs know that only single-beveled blades should be used for preparing raw fish in this traditional style. For that reason, we discounted any knife that didn't feature a single-bevel design. From that point, we did our best to include as many handcrafted models as possible, while still making sure to add a few lower cost options for the amateur home cooks.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
