Our latest search for knives has led us to the Schmidt Brothers; they are a new knife maker who is based in New Jersey. We hope you enjoy our Schmidt Brothers Knife Review.

The Schmidt brothers Knives are a new company. They use German steel in their knives. What distinguishes their knives is the patented curved heel that protects your finger when using the knife. They make some really nice-looking knives, and their storage blocks are something that you would be proud to display on your countertop.

 

Schmidt Brothers Knife Sets Review

Pros:

  • Sharpener
  • Enough knives for all of your cutting needs
  • Sleek and safe storage block
  • Ergonomically designed handle
  • Teak wood handles

 

Cons:

  • Wood handles require additional care due to teak wood
  • Lack of shears and nakiri knife.

 

Overall Review of the Schmidt Brothers Bonded Teak 15-Piece Knife Set:

This is a full set for the average home chef. It will do everything you need a knife set to do and has enough steak knives for most families. While shears would be a nice addition to the set, you may find that you don’t use shears. Price-wise it’s competitive with other 15 piece sets for what you get. The one big drawback is the maintenance of the teak wood with oil and to avoid water with them. If you are set on a Teak handle set of knives, this is a good one, but there will be a little more maintenance than other knife sets may require.

Overall Review of the Schmidt Brothers Teak 7-Piece Knife Set :

This knife set is more affordable than the 15 piece teak handled set. You still get a good series of knives. This knife set is similar to the Teak wood handle set, with fewer knives and a lower price point than you would expect. The German stainless steel means no dishwasher, but that is pretty much the same for every quality knife set, so if you are digging the zebra look, then this is a knife set to consider.
