No matter how much (or how little) you plan on cooking in the new year, you absolutely need a high-quality knife in your arsenal. A really good knife makes tasks like chopping, dicing, and slicing a whole lot easier and saves you precious time in the kitchen. If you’re looking to swap your old, dull knives for new ones, this just might be your lucky day. Zwilling is hosting a massive sale (we’re talking up to 70 percent off!) on their most iconic knives, including Kitchn Lifestyle Director Lisa’s favorite go-to knife. Below, we rounded up our favorite picks. You can browse the rest of the sale on Zwilling’s site, but you’ll want to hurry because the best deals are selling out fast!

Zwilling's eight-inch chef's knives are consistently rated as some of the best in the business, and several Kitchn editors count them among their faves, too. With the Twin Four Star II knife, you get an ergonomically designed handle with a stainless steel end cap that gives added balance. The knife also has a razor-sharp blade that's crafted using an ice-hardening process that makes it sturdy, sharp, corrosion-resistant, and stain-resistant. And like all Zwilling knives, this beauty is hand-finished by skilled artisans in Germany.

Don't underestimate the power of a good paring knife. Petite yet powerful, Zwilling's Pro four-inch knife will be your go-to for intricate jobs like deveining shrimp, peeling fruit, or cutting herbs. The small blade is designed to give you complete control and an ideal cutting angle for extra sharpness, while its high-quality materials ensure durability.

If you prefer extra-thin slices of meat, seafood, cheese, fruit, or veggies, you'll want to snag Zwilling's popular Santoku knife. It has a seven-inch blade that lets you slice in a single downward cut, while the hollow edges offer a natural rocking motion as you work. Another pro: The extra-wide blade is useful for scooping ingredients off your cutting board and into a pan.

If you're looking to invest in a knife block in 2021, Zwilling's Four Star seven-piece self-sharpening block set, which has earned a permanent spot on our gear pro Sharon's kitchen counter, is the way to go. The block includes a four-inch paring knife, five-inch serrated knife, 5.5-inch prep knife; eight-inch bread knife, eight-inch chef's knife, and twin shears — basically everything you need to meal prep like a pro — and the built-in sharpener will keep knives razor-sharp for years to come. Given the steep discount, this is one of the best deals you'll find.

While an eight-inch chef's knife and a four-inch paring knife are essential, you'll need a solid 5.5-inch prep knife for in-between tasks like slicing strawberries, mincing garlic, and cutting smaller veggies. According to Lifestyle Director Lisa, it gives you more control over the blade, "which is nice when I’m making smaller cuts or dealing with small jobs."

You just spent all those hours baking the most beautiful loaf of fresh bread, but using the wrong knife to slice it can ruin all that hard work. Zwilling's nine-inch bread knife is designed to create perfect slices, thanks to its generous width that easily cuts through crusty loaves or soft bread. Additionally, the blade is forged from special-formula high-carbon steel that doesn't rust or stain, and the sharp, serrated metal prevents excessive crumbs.
