Victorinox is a great affordable brand. If you are just starting in the kitchen or you are on a tight budget – this is your Chef. It’s probably the best low price range knife in this category. Price around £30

This is one of my favourite brands when it comes to knives. I owe for many years a similar chef (XLINE) which was for sale between 2013 and 2016. This one is cheaper than the one I owe (in 2013 it cost around £150). I would say this is a solid chef in the midrange price zone. Currently around £85

I had this chef for around 12 years (one inch shorter). If I would buy it again I would buy a 24 cm. From my experience it’s a great top price range knife. Price around £170
