I’ve been using JoyJolt Knives in my kitchen to see how they compare to my expensive Cutco knives that were purchased through a super helpful rep at a Home Show. I love my two Cutco knives (Hardy Slicer & Cheese Knife) so much that I literally donated every other knife in my kitchen a few years ago.
Since then I have tried a few different cheese knives because I’d like to add one more to our drawer for when we’re all in the kitchen prepping food together (it’s rarely used for cheese). They have ALL been sent back UNTIL JoyJolt showed up in my kitchen.
I found some real keepers here! You know it’s good if I allow it a permanent place in my home, as I am very particular about curating a minimalist home and avoiding clutter.
You guys, I expected to have all sorts of constructive criticism about this set, but it is actually super incredible. Out of the 6 knives, there is only one that I do not think our family would use, which is the Santoku. This is just a personal preference based on what we cut and dice up here. I didn’t think it was better or more unique than the other knives, so it isn’t necessary to have a duplicate that can do the same job another knife can do. I will give it another try before I decided if I’ll pass it along to another home.
The JoyJolt paring knife is the best I’ve used, anywhere, ever! So far this JoyJolt paring knife has perfomed better than my previously owned Cutco paring knife (which I sold, as I didn’t love it or feel confident using it).
I appreciate that this whole set of 6 knives is under $20 and that makes me feel a tad foolish that I spent about $100 on one single Cutco Cheese Knife (although it has served us well for 6 years and will keep getting used multiple times a day).
The JoyJolt set comes with sheaths, which I had to purchase separately for my other brand of knives AND pay shipping. Many knife companies don’t even offer this. Don’t underestimate this accessory. It helps protect YOU while you reach for the knife in the drawer, AND it preserves the life of the blade, keeping it sharper longer.
If you don’t love something in your kitchen (or anywhere in your home), seek out something better.
Every drawer and cupboard in your kitchen should be filled with things that serve you well and function just as you expect them to.
JoyJolt offers more than just knives, they have a beautiful line of glassware and more.
