1) Morphy Richards Accents Knife Bock (5 Pieces)

Morphy Richards is a great brand, and they have created a great knife set. This 5 piece set comes in 6 colour options, so it will fit any kitchen, and includes a bread knife, chef knife, slicing knife, utility knife and a paring knife. We found these knifes very sharp, and very ergonomic given the shape and weight of the handle. The block is beautifully designed, allowing easy access for any knife.  Perfect for those in a budget but want high quality.

Taylor Eye is a great knife brand, which has made an extremely popular colourful knife set. This 5 piece set includes a Chef Knife, Carving Knife, Bread Knife, All Purpose Knife, Paring Knife, which is all housed in an awesomely modern clear box. These knifes are a lot lighter than other brands, making them easier to handle, but sometimes harder to cut. However, we loved the fact that the handle was a non-slip rubber which meant you have extra control. These are dishwasher safe too.
