Updates
We have updated our Test Kitchen à la carte Knife Set to reflect our new favorite universal knife block (read updated review), our new favorite serrated knife (read updated review), and our new favorite paring knife (read updated review).

Overview:

This “all-star” set of test kitchen favorites (all best-in-class winners in past tests) fits neatly on our favorite universal knife block, designed to hold any variety of blades securely. Best of all, at about $440, 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 $219.84. See related testing.)
