One hard truth of adulthood is shopping for kitchen necessities and realizing just how expensive good knives are. Another realization is that a chic knife block on the kitchen counter just screams, “Look at me, I have my life together!”

Some knives are just sharper, shinier and more durable than others. Take this BergHOFF 18-Piece knife set, for example. Not only is BergHOFF internationally known for its high-quality knife sets and cookware, but the knives are super sharp and will last forever. Normally, a set this nice would go for a whopping $500 (no, really, the actual price is $500). But right now, it’s on sale at Nordstrom Rack for less than $100. Like, is this real life?

This BergHOFF knife set includes:

  • Kitchen scissors
  • 8 steak knives
  • 1 paring knife
  • 1 serrated knife
  • 1 smooth utility knife
  • 1 santoku knife
  • 1 peeling knife
  • 1 chef’s knife
  • 1 bread knife
  • Sharpening steel
  • A wooden display block, so your neighbors can envy your fancy new knife set

Basically, it’s everything you’ll ever need to train for your eventual Chopped victory — and $400 cheaper than the normal retail price. So yeah, you should act fast because people are smart, and deals this good don’t stay around for very long.

Let’s break down why the BergHOFF knife set is so fancy. The “precision-forged blades” have finely sharpened edges for exceptional use and will stay sharp and durable for years. The knives are also weighted for balance control and feature ergonomic handles for a secure grip — aka they’re safer to use than your standard knife.

OK, but surely a knife set this nice must be a pain to clean, right? Nope, it’s super easy to clean with warm water and soap without diminishing the quality. The set also comes with a lifetime warranty. We love it; we love it so much.

So if you’re in the market for a new knife set because yours are dull and just meh, this fancy-schmancy BergHOFF knife set will honestly change your life. Plus, thanks to the sharpening steel, the knives will never get dull! Grab it now while the price is more than reasonable.
