I'm sure i've read theres a difference between Sabatier and the brand Sabatier? Can annyone recommend these?

i'm looking for a decent knife set like this for about this price, but also not sure about Sabatier.

Be good to hear from an expert...

Sabatier isn't actually a brand of knife. Various manufacturers make sabatier knives - some are good ones, but an awful lot are mediocre and overpriced.

"it must be pointed out that no SABATIER company owns "THE" Sabatier brand. "

Sabatier is the region of France that the knives are made in, a bit like champagne. the different companies have different logos, so you would need to look on the blade itself. Alongside th name you'll see a symbol like a gemstone or a lion etc. Can't remember for the lif of me which is which though, sorry. So you've got a bit of an internet search coming on.

I may be wrong, but looking at the photo and details I would say these can be bought on a famous auction site from a catalogue clearance company for less than £21 delivered.

Apologies if I am mistaken; I am going by the photo, contents details and the guarantee period.

HTH,

Buy a sabatier knife by all means, but check out the brand first to make sure it's a good knife. There really is a load of rubbish out there at high prices with the name Sabatier on, and people buy it just for the name, not realising that it will vary according to the brand.

Or consider one of the kitchen knives made by Victorinox (the Swiss Army Knife people) - these are used by a fair number of chefs, and are extremely good value. Check them out - you might be surprised at how good they are for the money.

Above all - try out any knives before you buy them.

I might just do that...thanks for the info :thumbsup:

Thanks for the post mishka1127

I've fixed your image, HOF images are a but tricky .. and I've added the info re: the £10 discount.

I was checking these out - ]http//ww…php

One of the reasons I would get a block is that apparently it doesn't do the knives too much good rattling about in a drawer. However I agree that most knife blocks include knives you may never use...

My brother in law is a chef and he uses Victorinox.. definitely a good recommendation, that!

jebus..i got my set of just normal knives in a wooden block for about £5
do these make the food taste better or something?

Dont buy Stellar Sabatiers or Judge theyre the cheaper junker version get something like Taylors eye witness Veritable Sabatier. Victorinox rosewoods are very good and a decent price, Henckels 4-5 stars are very good to.

Thanks for the heads up. Currently looking for a few knives but would prefer a knife block to stop them rattling about in a drawer. The Henckels are dear but I suppose you get what you pay for. Looks like the Stellar Sabatiers might have been a mistake..:oops:. cheers

These are very good and cheap, much prefer them to a block. Get a few decent knives and one.

I think you'e way better investing in one good knife than a set o mediocre knives. I jut got a kasumi chefs knife for about 70 quid, and its way better value than this set in my opinion - couldn't recomend the brand enough!

Yes i agree, the magnetic racks are a lot better to use than the blocks and it frees up worktop space.
We have one with Kitchen Devils proffesional range knives, which I bought individually nearly 20 years ago. Just a few slides on a knife steel and they will hone as sharp as a scalpel.

Youll find a nice selection of Victorinox Rosewoods for very good prices, could get a decent set together with the magnetic rack for £50!

No, ready meals taste much the same however you open them :whistling:

Good knives are an absolute necessity for any serious cook; sharp knives are an absolute necessity for anyone for safety, as pressing hard on blunt knives is a recipe for disaster :-(
Cheap jagged edged knives (of various descriptions) are the worst type of the lot, as however sharp they are, they don't usually even cut straight, and pressure seems to react differently depending on what you are cutting.

I always used Victorinox when I was working in meat inspection, and would also reccomend them; but have some fairly "ordinary" Sabatier ones at home - not the best and require a bit much more looking after than I give them, although I usually use a fine diamond sharpener now rather than lug around a steel :-(

Just to throw this into the mix,nothin to do with knives perse but why do supposedly stainless steel items like scissors go rusty,i don't get that,i'm always replacing kitchen scissors as they get rust on then,i thought stainless steel didnt rust.

Ask yourself - do you really need 5 different sharp knives in your kitchen? Unless you're a chef / caterer, most of us are better off spending the same money on a couple of good quality knives instead. I have 2 global knives which I found on sale. I cook every night and these are the only knives I need.

From Wikipedia:

There are many knife manufacturers using Sabatier as their brand, some … There are many knife manufacturers using Sabatier as their brand, some Sabatier manufacturers are considered authentic, and some are simply using the reputation of the famous Sabatier name for marketing purposes. Generally speaking among connoisseurs of fine cutlery, only knives manufactured in Thiers, France from well established manufacturers from the 19th century are considered "genuine" Sabatier knives.There are many manufacturers in the other countries that also use the Sabatier name on their products. However, these products are generally manufactured cheaply in mass production processes in China and other countries. These manufacturers generally use non-traditional and lower quality semi-forged and welded production techniques.

Very valid argument!

Depends on what you want to do too - for example I have a cheap chef's knife I only use for CRUDE jobs like hacking up chicken carcasses as it murders the edge on a sharp knife, and is consequently not bothered about it having as finely honed an edge as my main Chef's knife.

I don't have the problem. I have had the same kitchen scissors for years, and I don't think they were expensive at all!

Stainless steel does blacken quite a bit, but "rust" as such is not something you see.

Ask yourself this ........ Would Chef Tony use these?

Maybe i wash them too much..lol

I dunno but after a while they develop rust spots on them and i have to buy a new pair,i don't mean after a couple of weeks but probably after a year or so.
