Best chef's knife

The Global G-2 8-inch Cook's Knife is a gyuto knife, a hybrid between a traditional chef's knife and a santoku. Reviewers say this Japanese-made knife is light, well balanced and very sharp. It's most comfortable for users with smaller hands.

Best paring knife

Solidly built, yet nimble and precise, the Wüsthof Classic 3½-inch Paring Knife is designed for detail work, like peeling fruit or trimming the stems off strawberries. However, owners say it actually excels at a wider variety of delicate tasks in the kitchen.
