1. Cuisinart is the best make when it comes to any kind of cooking supply that you can get. That includes the chef knives, and I find that the quality of their products is high and they are all long-lasting. That is what you want when you are cooking.

  2. The Faberware chef knife is definitely inexpensive but it works well considering that. Though like it was noted, I have had issues with it staining and it needs frequent sharpening. If you don’t mind having to do that, then this is a good option if you are frugal like I am.

    • Hi, Anna,

      Thanks for the feedback. We are also frugal sometimes and enjoy testing all products regardless of their price range.

      Have a good day!

  3. Considering the price, the Mercer Culinary Genesis M20606 is a high-quality chef knife and it is no wonder it was awarded as the best knife that is under 50 bucks. It is quite rare to use a knife that has the best quality for such a cheap price.

    • Hello, Loulou,

      That’s true, there are good quality affordable products out there.

      Enjoy cooking!

  4. A good knife under $50 is the Victorinox Fibrox Pro 47552 chef knife. You still can’t compare it to a knife that is of better quality, but it does the job well enough. Just be prepared to sharpen it often.

    • Hi, Tex,

      Thanks for sharing your opinion. It is true that affordable knives require a little more care and maintenance, but they are a great starting point to the cooking adventure.

      Have a good day!

  5. Just know that a chef knife under $50 isn’t going to be that great. But we all know that money does not grow on trees. Some people need to watch their dollars more than others. A good inexpensive knife is the Wusthof Pro. It’s pretty good on all levels.

    • Hi,

      Thanks for the feedback!

  6. I believe this is a comprehensive and honest list. Looking at the features and descriptions, I think Victorinox is a go-to choice for me as it flaunts a 5″ sharp blade – this serves most of my kitchen purposes rightly.

    • Hello, Melinda,
