Skenda Knives Ergonomic Kitchen Knife Set

I recently bought a (hugely discounted) Skenda Knives set from Amazon and I have to tell you I’m impressed. I guess it helps that I haven’t bought new knives in about a decade, and while my old set works pretty well, this new set has stolen pride of place in the drawers.

I think knives are one of those things that you become complacent with and you just accept that they are what they are, and it’s only when you use a shiny new sharp set that you realise what you’ve been missing out on.

That was the case here, for sure.Skenda KnivesThe Skenda Kitchen Knife Set is advertised on Amazon as a 12 piece set, but what they mean is that it’s a 6 piece knife set (as advertised on the packaging ) with 6 individual blade covers – making it a 12 piece set.

These antibacterial knives have a non-stick coating finish and antibacterial blades with ergonically designed handles. What all that means, really, is that the blades are coated which should prevent rust and make them easier to clean and they are comfortable to hold.

The set comes with a 3.5″ pairing knife – useful for peeling vegetables, – a 5″ utility knife, a 7″ carving knife, an 8″ bread knife, an 8″ chef knife and a 7″ Santoku knife, a Japanese knife best used for chopping, cutting, dicing and mincing.

First out the box for me was the bread knife and I was surprised by the difference between it and my old one. It sliced through the bread without squashing it! I’d almost forgotten what unsquashed bread looked like! (Yes, I’m ashamed of myself!)

Next I used a pairing knife to quickly rid a swede of it’s skin, and the chef knife to quickly and with minimal effort dice the swede.Skenda Knives

The blades do have a slight flexibility to them which makes them feel less solid, but it doesn’t affect performance, and if you look at the cost compared to a £100+ set, it’s understandable.

I think my favourite thing about these knives is the individual blade covers. Each knife has it’s own colour matched cover, and when you pack them away, you can cover them so that you don’t stick your hands in the drawer and have your fingers sliced open. Because of this – very real – danger (I’ll show you my scars some day!) all my sharp knives have lived on my kitchen counter, but now they can go in the drawer. I’m really pleased with this development in my kitchen!

Over all, I’m really pleased with the Skenda Knives Set. At the price I think they are really good value. I’ve only been using them for a couple of weeks, so I don’t know how long they will last, but so far, so good!

  1. Great article. Knives are an essential part of every kitchen. Without knives, it is impossible to work in the kitchen. I always prefer to use good quality knives.
