This Christmas a lot of us will be digging into our pockets and buying our loved ones - or at least those who love cooking - a brand new, shiny chef’s knife to fill a stocking. The chef’s knife is one of the most essential tools in the arsenal of any cook - it is versatile enough to do big tasks and little intricate work time after time, and there is nothing like getting your hands on your trusty companion when the pressure is on in the kitchen.

I have taken a bit of time to put together a list of some of the best chef’s knives on the market at the moment, so you can see which one you might be interested in. You can click on the picture or the links and head over to Amazon if you are looking to buy; they generally offer the best prices.

J.A. Henckels International Forged Synergy 8-Inch Chef's Knife

J.A. Henckels Synergy 8-Inch Chef's Knife

I personally use Henckels knives, so I am probably a little bit biased towards them. These Syngery knives are a really great series, and they look fantastic to boot. Combining a very modern all-steel body and a moudled rubber handle, and the whole thing has a brused stainless steel finish.

These knives do not break the bank, either - although they are still quite expensive if you are not used to high end kitchen knives. There are certainly more expensive knives on the market, but I honestly believe that Henckles offers some of the best knives around.
