That made me lol

I want some yaxell knives!!! Super gou!!

The image of the knife disturbingly reminds me of Crimewatch.

Was impressed until I read made in Sheffield. Not a bad thing but the impression start to finish is they are Japanese.

To compare these to a traditional Japanese sword is a bit much, these have 67 layers while a Japanese sword has layers in the hundreds of thousands.

personally, i don't see the point in a santoku - historically, it's a japanese copy of a european chef's knife that's actually less versatile. just get a chef's knife instead, and you'll be able to use it for a lot more jobs.

leaving that aside, however - these eden knives are superb for the money. i got the damascus version myself because it was prettier, but that chef's knife has been my go-to knife now for the last few years, and it's brilliant. takes an edge really well, and holds it brilliantly. the parer is excellent, too. slowly, i'm switching all of my blades over to the eden blades. the steel they use, by the way, is the same stuff used in branded knives that cost a heck of a lot more.

sure, you can get better knives - but you'll be paying a hell of a lot more for them, and unless you're a professional chef (or a high-end home cook) it's probably a waste of your money. the eden knives are the best value for money knife i've yet come across, and they're a genuinely good kitchen knife, too.

Anyone know if these work on White Walkers?

32quid for a cheap replica knife of the real thing, lol how about no.
32quid alone for any knife is a bit nuts if you aren't a chef who uses it several hours/day.

Bought one of these at a much higher price as a gift and they are fantastic. This is a great price for them.

I'd pay a little more and get Global Knives. They are amazing. Yes they are more expensive but they last a lifetime and if you do any cooking having a good set of knives does help.

Nice knife but damaskus steel is non existent and no one knows for sure how it was made. We can only guess

thanks - ordered!

In what way do you think Global are better? Have you owned both Global and these knives? Interested to hear your informed opinions.

A santoku knife is better at picking up your sliced whatever than a chef's knife as it has a wide blade all the way to the point...much like how a cleaver can pick up even more. Whereas a chef knife tapers towards the end. But yes, they are fairly similar in use.

Also remember that Japanese knives have a blade edge angle of about 20 degrees when other knives are about 30 degrees. So don't use a Japanese knife (eg Global) in one of those pull through sharpeners unless it's the right cut angle.

Both need sharpening at some future point in time. Honing knives are a must to keep them sharp.

I've got a same brand santoku, a global chef knife and a kin vegetable knife. I use the santoku the most as I can work quicker and not be as careful as with a global and kin.

Also the Global handle will not suit everyone.. It's quite small. I see a lot of chefs use WMF knifes as they are full tang and have a bigger handle to grip than a Global.

Cold. Not Global

Folding steel doesn't improve it anyway, Japanese swords were no where near as good as Persian and Indian. Which were made of what was often known as 'Damascus steel' so this whole product just seems confused.


All very interesting chaps, but will these knives cut through food cans, frozen steaks and plastic pipes like the QVC Ginsu ones will?

And, if you "buy now", will your knife suppliers throw in an extra set for free? And all for just £19.95 (plus shipping & handling)

I bet these Midori knives don't even have a half-decent infomercial

While I am a not a fan of the posted knives there is a distinct difference between the ones you have shown and the posted ones. Yours, utilise an edge that is for all intent and purposes a saw and the posted ones a sharp edge. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Yours are cheap as these type of 'knives' normally are, as once blunt they are next to impossible to resharpen to there original sharpness. The edge knives can obviously be resharpened almost indefinitely, hence the higher cost.

The quality of both types of knives can usually be taken in how long they stay sharp. This comes down to the quality of the steel used.

I posted that partly in jest, and partly in homage to the mass-marketed QVC cr.@p which most of us have been persuaded to buy at some point.

I seriously doubt that any knife for sale on QVC would stand up to the needs of even an amateur chef
