Whether you're an aspiring chef or you just need to upgrade your kitchen utensils, knives are a great place to start because they’re essential tools that can last a long time if you take care of them properly. Ordinarily, nice knives can set you back a lot of money—but now, you can shop from leading brands and still save during this Sur La Table sale.

For a limited time, you can save up to 60 percent on select knives and sets from Zwilling J.A. Henckels, Global, and Miyabi Hibana. For example, you can get impressive discounts on two popular Zwilling J.A. Henckels block sets. This eight-piece knife block set comes with paring, serrated, prep, bread, and chef's knives, as well as kitchen shears, a sharpening rod, and a storage block. Originally $734, it's on sale for about $280, so you'll save roughly $454. You can also get the Four Star seven-piece set for a steep discount, so you'll pay $300 instead of the usual $769 retail price. It comes with almost everything the eight-piece version does, except it doesn't include a paring knife, and it comes with a self-sharpening block.

Outside of Zwilling J.A. Henckels, you can shop some stellar finds from Global, like this two-piece chef and paring knife combo, discounted from $220 to about $100. Or, if you've always admired Miyabi knives from afar but never used any yourself, this Sur La Table sale could be a good opportunity to try them out at long last. You can grab a 9.5-inch Miyabi Red Morimoto bread knife for about $50 off, and if you don't mind spending more—or you're searching for a wedding gift for a couple that's hard to shop for—this limited-edition, seven-piece knife block set is on sale for $700, down $1202.

No matter which knife set you choose, they all ship free at Sur La Table.
