Test Kitchen à La Carte Knife Set

Published November 1, 2011. From Cook's Illustrated.
Update: July 2016
We've retested serrated knives and our new winner, the Mercer Culinary Millennia 10" Wide Bread Knife, is now included in our Test Kitchen à La Carte Knife Set.

Overview:

This “all-star” set of test kitchen favorites (all best-in-class winners in past tests) fits neatly into our favorite universal knife block by Bodum, designed to hold any variety of blades securely in its nest of plastic sticks. Best of all, at $334.65, this ideal collection costs less than many prepackaged knife block sets.

(For an even less expensive option, a seven-piece collection that includes Best Buys can be had for just $189.95. See related testing.)
