This invaluable two-piece set contains two of the most-used knives in the kitchen: a three-inch parer, for cleaning, peeling, removing blemishes on fruits and vegetables, and other delicate tasks; and a five-inch boning/utility knife, for trimming fat, de-boning chicken, cutting sandwiches, and other small- to medium-scaled cutting jobs. As a part of Chicago Cutlery’s Walnut Tradition line of cutlery, these knives combine high performance with excellent value. Stamped rather than forged for lighter weight and a more reasonable price, they’re made from high-carbon, 420 stainless steel with carbon to keep edges sharper longer and chromium to resist rust and stains, while Chicago’s exclusive Taper Grind edge produces impressively precise slices and retains its sharpness well over time. A full tang extends from the tip of each knife to the end of the handle for improved balance and strength. Comfortable walnut handles offer the rich warmth of wood and a classic look; they’re securely held to the blade with triple-compression brass rivets for added safety and stability. Chicago Cutlery covers their knives with a lifetime guarantee; they recommend hand-washing and drying for best results. –Mary Park

  • I have a whole drawer full of knives,trying to find THE knife, the Chicago Cutlery knife is THE knife. The utility knife from the walnut tradition is my go to knife for everything,from cutting cheese to onions to peeling potatoes, it’s the best ever! I have a few of them so there is one for everyone helping with the BBQ. I don’t have a problem with them dulling.

  • I have a few of the Chicago Cutlery knives: this utility knife, a boning knife, a bread knife, and a slicing knife. They’re great for what they are–cheap, comfortable, and very sharp. And the soft blade is extremely easy to steel and sharpen.

    They are not high end knives. For cutting that requires technique, or high volume (like what you’d use a chefs knife for, or a paring knife) look elsewhere. The CC versions of these knives were not designed for serious cooks. Balance is wrong, stamped blades are difficult to grab. Also the steel is so soft it won’t hold an edge for more than a minute of hard use. Look to the higher end german, french, or japanese knives for the real workhorses.

    But for your other knives, these can’t be beat these for price. And I love the feel of the wood handles.

  • PC:

    I got this pair and give my 12-year-old pair of similar Chicago knives to a young coworker. But after I got these knives, I asked him for the old pair and gave him the new ones.

    What was wrong? They are not too bad, especially considering the price. But when I looked at the back of one knife, it is not perfectly straight. It can be corrected by some forceful bending because it is a small knife after all. Obviously I didn’t do any metallurgical analysis, but the stainless steel just feel different from the older version. It is sharp enough to slice paper out of the box, though.

    If I didn’t have the older version to compare them with, I’d give it 4 stars for sure. Now I guess I’ll stay with the “vintage” version. My young friend, however, is very happy to get two brand new knives as a gift.

  • The knives are not as sharp as I was hoping they would be. They are okay but I was a little disappointed.

  • I was happy to find a couple of Chicago Cutlery knives to go with a set that I already had, but had lost two of my knives. It is hard to find individual pieces instead of a set. This was exactly what I needed and Chicago Cutlery is the best brand of knives!
