A kitchen knife might seem like something that doesn't need much thought, but having the right one can really make all the difference. If you're a self-proclaimed home chef, then you know exactly what I mean.

Since then, my knife game has really improved. Being a shopping editor, I've had the chance to test a number of cool brands, four of which have turned out to be my favorites. I'm a big believer in smaller direct-to-consumer brands, and these knives are all from impressive brands that know exactly what they're doing.
