    It's not the knives that should bother any of us. It's his hands.

    You don’t have to be knife expert to guess which one of the knifes are more expensive in this video. It’s obvious for everyone who ever holds knives in their hands. More interesting question is which knife worth its price, which one has a better ratio of price to the usefulness.

  • Kaptain Kid

    Come now . . . I got as far as your paring knife comparison . . . Get real. Have both. It is unfair to compare them. It's like comparing a bicycle to a Ferrari. Bottom is is, you get what you pay for and you pay for what you need. When I was in college I had no money. I bought the cheap knife. At 75 years of age, I can afford any knife I want. I still don't buy the hyped knifes. Chicago Cutlery makes decent price for a very low price. Check them out. I just bought a complete set at Walmart for about $18 bucks. And they are stainless steel, so they don't "patina". When they wear out, I'll buy another set. Go figure.
    Having said that, I enjoyed the video. It is informative. Bottom line is, you get what you pay for. If you are able to afford the best, definately buy the expensive knives, you will enjoy them. But you had better learn how to sharpen them . . . dull knives take lives, or at least fingers.

      Right?? It wouldn't have taken long for him to clean his hands and nails considering he's about to get close up shots of his hands that over a million people will watch. That has to be one of the most important times in his life to wash his hands.

  • Quick Attack Films

    If I spend $3100 on a knife, you best believe it's doing more than cutting bread. Gonna perform some sort of sacrifice with it, maybe kill the dragon that's threatening to destroy Skyrim and enslave all of Tamriel. If I spend that much on a knife, it WILL have the blood of my foes on it.

    • Quick Attack Films
      Quick Attack Films Day ago

      $60 is too much to spend on a serrated knife. If you're spending $3100 on a knife, your name damn well better be Gordon Ramsay.

    I really don't care that much about knives, but this was such an interesting video to watch.

  • Hendrik visch
    Hendrik visch 2 days ago

    Sooo... let me get this straight, The Cheff knife with the wooden handle and concave grind is cheaper than the plastic handle knife from the first comparison.
    See I knew it was a rip off. I cna get those plastic hanle knifes for like 1 to 2 EUR here. Even a pack of 3 of those knifes are cheaper than the 11 dollar one. I could be missing something ofc..

    • Chaddaï Fouché
      Chaddaï Fouché 10 hours ago

      Yep, you're missing something : The "plastic" handle is in fact Fibrox, a material that's patented by Victorinox, it has an excellent grip, even if wet, can be sterilized in a professional kitchen cleaner and is durable. Plus the stamped knives by Victorinox are probably the best in the world and can give a run for their money even to forged knives that cost from twice to four times as much...
      The Victorinox knives are often used by professionals (as he alluded) because they're excellent knives for their price (which is a bit higher than really crappy knives like the 1 or 2 € ones or the 4$ chef knife).
