Success in the kitchen almost always begins with high-quality cutlery. Think about it — what meal doesn’t require prep work like chopping, slicing, or even whacking a clove of garlic? Investing in a quality knife (or set!) is the way to go if you want to make cooking easier, faster, and safer. At Apartment Therapy and Kitchn, we’re big fans of Zwilling, a trusted name that has been crafting exquisite, high-performance knives for 290 years. And this Fourth of July weekend, you can save up to 60 percent off a range of the brand’s offerings, whether you’re in the market for a trusty chef’s knife or ready for a great starter set. Here are our top six picks from Zwilling’s sale that you can’t afford to miss.

was $112.50

A prep knife should offer versatility so that you’re not constantly switching knives to finish tasks. The Four Star Prep Knife does exactly that, with a 5.5-inch blade that’s long enough to chop vegetables on a board but short enough for handwork like peeling potatoes. A serrated edge enables the sturdy yet flexible steel blade to prep and butterfly raw proteins like a champ.

Ask any pro, and they will say their go-to knife in the kitchen is a chef’s knife for everything from chopping to slicing to mincing. Zwilling’s Gourmet 8-inch version has an ice-hardened steel blade that's crafted to keep its shaper longer, as well as a laser-controlled edge for precision cutting. That means you can finally tackle that butternut squash without worry!

was $82.50

Fresh fruit season is in full swing, and nothing works better than a paring knife for small tasks like hulling strawberries and peeling apples. Do yourself a favor and get one with a strong, sharp blade, like the Pro 4-inch Paring Knife. Its broad-curved bolster works seamlessly whether you prefer the western rocking technique or the eastern chop motion.

was $215.00

Japanese knives are known for having both lighter handles and blades than their western counterparts, often making them more comfortable to use. This Miyabi Kaizen is designed in that same tradition, with a hand-honed blade to ensure precision and a moisture-repellent handle that won’t slip. And much like a western chef’s knife, the 8-inch blade is perfect for everything from slicing large cuts of meat to mincing garlic.

5 / 6
was $75.00

A handy set of kitchen shears will do everything from snipping fresh cilantro for a summery salad to opening all those Amazon Prime boxes. This three-piece set has micro-serrated blades that stay sharp, along with polypropylene handles that work as bottle openers and jar-lid lifters. Bonus: They're great for both right- and left-handed cooks.

was $723.00

If you’re ready to invest in good knives, make sure you keep them safely stored with a knife block. This kitchen staple prevents you from injuring your precious fingers when you reach for one, and it also keeps your knives safe from unnecessary nicking, scratching, and dulling. The Pro Seven-Piece Block goes one step further by offering Keep It Sharp (KIS) technology that automatically sharpens your knives when you pull them out. This set includes paring, prep, bread, and chef's knives, as well as a cutting board and kitchen shears.
