Most of us are happy to stick with whatever is included in a cheap cutlery set when it comes to knives. This is fine for some, but if you’re someone who seriously loves cooking, you know how important it is to have a high-grade knife, or two, or ten.

While some fancy knife brands can set you back a few hundred dollars for a single blade, there are a few, like Global and Furi, that offer high-quality cuts at a more reasonable price. Those prices become even more reasonable when they’ve been slashed.

If your love of cooking outweighs the size of your wallet, trying to load up your kitchen with high-grade crookery and appliances can be a bit difficult. However, if you’re patient and willing to do your homework, you can find some great deals on essential kitchen gear.

Even with these considerable discounts, some of these knives are still expensive. If there’s a knife set that you really want to get your hands around, Amazon does let you make purchases with buy-now pay later services like Zip Pay*, which will let you pay back your purchase over time, interest-free.

Here are the best knife deals you can currently pick up, sorted by single blades, block sets and accessories.

If you’re going to buy a single knife from this list of sales, make it this. A Santoku knife is a good alternative for a chef’s or cook’s knife – a great all-rounder blade that can be pretty much used for anything.

The blade of this knife is fluted, which will help to stop food from sticking to it. So if you need to make a lot of cuts, very quickly, you won’t have to break your rhythm to clean the blade.

With a discounted price tag of 50% off, this is an offer you can’t refuse. Start slicing and dicing with your brand new Global Santoku knife here.

You should own a paring knife. They’re versatile little blades that are great for taking care of fruit and veg, and are just handy to have if you need to make any high-precision work. Like Global’s other product, this paring knife has a lightweight, balanced design to help make your work smooth.

If you’re someone who cooks a lot of fish, and you live in a constant state of frustration about the giant pain in the arse that are tiny bones, a boning knife is the best investment you could ever make.

Global’s classic boning knife usually sells for $179, but you can currently grab it with a decent $59 discount.

The long blade of this knife is flexible, giving you an extra degree of dexterity when cutting and filleting your meats. Removing those hair-thin bones from a salmon fillet couldn’t be easier. Plus, you can be more subtle with your cuts, so your food doesn’t look like someone trod on it with a work boot when it comes to plate presentation.

The best knife accessory deals

Global Minosharp Plus 3 Ceramic Knife Sharpener – now $53.95, save $61

Ideally, you should be using a whetstone to keep your knives sharp, but a good pull-through sharpener is a much more convenient option.

This Global Minosharp Plus 3 knife sharpener uses three ceramic wheels – coarse, medium and fine – to help bring a sharp edge back to your dull blades. It also cycles water through the wheels, to keep your knife’s temperature cool while also helping to wash the metal shavings from it.

The Global knife sharpener has had $61 shaved off its price tag and is currently on sale for $53.95.

Furi Pro Magnetic Knife Rack (36cm) – now $47, save $42.95

Okay, so this isn’t a Global product, but a good knife rack is a good knife rack.

If you don’t own a knife block, a magnetic wall rack is a great alternative. If counter-space is at a premium, a magnetic rack helps eliminate the chunky knife block from the equation, while offering incredibly easy access.

This rack is silicone-coated, making it scratch resistant, and can hold up to six knives. Compared to throwing your knives into a drawer or an improperly sized knife block, a wall rack is also a better way to care for your knife’s edge. Just make sure it’s properly secured.

You can grab this Furi Pro magnetic knife rack for $47, down from the RRP of $89.95.
