Cutco 1728 7-5/8

Cutco 1728 7-5/8" Petite Chef Knife

by CUTCO Corporation

Ergonomic handle Universal fit for large or small, left or right hands. Thumb and forefinger lock into place for safety and control. Fatigue-resistant design.

The Cutco Petite Chef knife is an elegant, sturdy, well-crafted knife. It is comfortable to hold, and the blade is thin and sharp, making it easy to cut through food. Our testers were impressed by how thin the knife was, and by how comfortable it felt in the hand. The knife is dishwasher safe, but testers preferred hand washing, as the precision and durability of the knife would be diminished if the blade were washed in the dishwasher. Some reviewers felt that this knife was sharp enough, but that it was too sharp, and they preferred the Cutco Petite Utility Knife, which is thicker and better suited for slicing meat.

The CUTCO Petite Carver Knife 1729 is our favorite small carving knife, and it's well worth a look if you're looking for a more compact knife that can still get the job done. The Petite Carver Knife has a smaller blade than our other picks, but it's plenty big enough to handle most small- to medium-size meats and veggies. It's sharp enough and thin enough to handle most cuts of meat, including thin steaks and chicken, and it has enough heft to handle larger fruits and vegetables, such as cantaloupe and eggplant. It's also not as heavy as some of the other knives in our picks, so it's more comfortable to use. The knife's handle is made from an ergonomic molded polypropylene, which feels soft and comfortable in your hand. The handle also has a patented Thermo-Resin handle, which provides a degree of durability and grip, and it's shaped to comfortably fit your hand.

The Cutco Model 1721 Trimmer is an outstanding value. It's no longer made, but we found one online that is in excellent shape, and it's perfect for occasional or occasional use around the house. The trimmer has a full tang, triple-rivet construction, so it will last for years to come. The blades are stainless steel, which cuts through many different types of food, including fruits, vegetables, meat, and fish, so it's a great all-around trimmer. The blade is 4 7/8 inches long, which is longer than most trimmers, and it has a 15-degree angle. It has a 15-foot power cord, so it's long enough to use comfortably.

The knives are sharp, comfortable and well balanced, and they cut through everything from steak to apples to roast turkey. The handles are very comfortable to hold, and they don't slip out of our hands when we use them to cut. The satin finish on the blades looks sharp and feels smooth; the matte finish on the handles is unobtrusive, and they're not slippery.

CUTCO Set of 4 Steak/Table Knives #1759 - Classic Black

CUTCO Set of 4 Steak/Table Knives #1759

Blade length 3-3/8". Overall length 8-3/8".

Cutco's 1759 knife is one of the best-performing knives we've tested. It sliced through beef, pork, and chicken with ease, and it did so without hesitation. The knife handled both thick steaks and thin fillets without effort, and it held its edge well during our testing. When cutting through thick steaks, the knife's blade was very stable, and the handle stayed firmly in place. The knife's handle is made of plastic, but it's very comfortable and is shaped so that it's comfortable to hold. The knife comes with a protective cover, which helps keep the knife sharp. The knife is dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing it to preserve the blade's edge.
