From kitchen knives to cutting boards, our collection of cutlery includes essential tools for your kitchen. High-quality cutlery is a worthwhile investment for everyone from the reluctant home cook to the professional chef. Our selection offers everything you need to stock your kitchen.

We offer Wusthof, Henckels, Berghoff, Tramontina, Miyabi, and other top brands.
Basic Kitchen Knives
When it comes to cutlery, begin with the basics: With a chef's knife, paring knife, and serrated knife, you can tackle nearly any kitchen task. The broad, sharp blade of a chef's knife—available in lengths from 5 to 9½ inches—makes it ideal for cutting meat, dicing or chopping vegetables, slicing herbs, and chopping nuts, while mincing, peeling, and other precision tasks are better left to paring knives or slightly longer and sturdier utility knives. The long, scalloped blades of a serrated or bread knife work like a saw, cutting through but not damaging crusty bread, moist cakes, delicate pastry, and thick-skinned fruits like watermelon and pineapple.
Once you own the basics, expand your collection of cutlery with task-specific specialty knives. Explore our collection and find steak knives that slice effortlessly through steaks and carving knives for cutting and slicing cooked meats, poultry, and fish, as well as several styles of cheese knives and cheese knife sets. We also offer Nakiri and Santoku knives; these traditional Japanese knives are similar to a chef’s knife, and they’re most often used for slicing, dicing, and chopping vegetables.
Accessories for Kitchen Knives
Sharp knives are always the safest to use, and the easiest way to keep your cutlery in its best condition is with the proper knife sharpening and storage tools. Explore our collection to find honing steels, magnetic knife bars, and knife blocks to keep your knives sharp and protected. In addition to sharpening regularly and storing your knives correctly, prevent them from becoming dull by using a cutting board. You’ll find attractive and utilitarian options in our collection.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade your knife collection or just starting out, high-quality cutlery is a practical and worthwhile investment for your kitchen. Because of their heirloom potential, knives and knife sets also make great gifts. Whatever your cutlery needs, find options to suit them at Riverbend Home.
