Epicurious challenges knife expert Geoff Feder to guess which knife is more expensive. Feder breaks down paring knives, chef knives, boning knives, and serrated knives. For each type, the connoisseur looks at and tests each knife before guessing which knife costs more. Once the prices are revealed, Feder explains why a specific knife costs more and dives into specifics on how each knife is made.

Today... We are going to compare two cars and see if our expert can determine which one is more expensive... First up we have a Bugatti Chiron on the left, and on the right, we have a Ford Fiesta S... Hmmm... This is gonna be a real tough one...

Even a monkey could tell which ones are the better knives.

This is so dumb... literally any person could do this, “here is a 350$ knife and here is a 4$ which is more expensive ??” Why do you need a expert for this? Would be a lot more interesting to see small difference in price and not the top shelf compared to the bottom !

C'mon, this video is idiotic! A monkey could tell which ones were most expensive of these knives, no expertise needed. And a genuine expert (or even a guy that's worked at Sur La Table for a while) could probably tell who who made them all by the trade dress. Overall I've enjoyed this series (ie 'experts guess____________') but this one was kinda stupid.

As a knife guy thus guy is just slinging around terms you wouldn’t know if you weren’t a knife guy. Trying to sound smart it sounds like. Doesn’t take a knife “expert”. Probably just a guy that works for them that’s a knife guy and they probably told him just try to sound smart lol. Still watched the whole thing so I can’t complain too much.

I was half expecting at some point in the video; "Knife A, with a full tang, made of sturdy material, it's something everyone should have in their kitchen and Knife B... appears to be a spoon, that doubles as a fork... Knife B is in fact a spork.." This video is hilarious. It's almost like satire upon satire.

iSigmax 19 soat oldin
Fella here probably knows a thing or two about knives. Hands are pretty typical of knifemakers. Just have y'all know, craftsmen have seemingly dirty hands not by choice. Some of these just doesn't wash off as easily as you think it does. That said, he sounds dumb because the selection of knives presented pretty much required him to state the obvious. He could have went on to talk about different steel and grades but whatever for? He's probably tasked to dumb it down for y'all sheeple. You probably don't know much about knife if you ask "what's a sheeple?"

The price difference was so vast because I don't think he would actually be able to tell the difference. Anyone should be able to see a difference between a £300 and £4 knife. Now put a £5 and £10, or £150 and £200 knife in front of him and lets see what happens. He clearly had no idea of what price range each knife would be. Like "I think this would be a sub £30 knife, while this should be upwards of £100". No instead you compare a £4 to £350 and then look surprised at the huge difference.

vovapsix Kun oldin
This is kind of an obvious comparison, maybe its just me, but it takes at most a second to tell which is more expensive, from handle, to tang, to heel, to taper, to polish. This is a drastic comparison, even to an untrained eye... P.S. The price margin and quality is substantially different in these comparisons. It all boils down to this. Are you interested in cooking techniques, do you want your blade to last longer and cut sharper, is your budged big enough to spend on a tool that can potentially withstand a lifetime of use, are you prepared to take proper care of your knife (dry it, sharpen it etc.), then choose the more expensive one you wont regret it one bit. On the other hand if your budget is low, you dont want to take special care of your knife, you dont care much about its lifespan since its cheap, you dont use kitchen knives as often, then the cheaper knife is for you.
Lighthalzen Kun oldin
It would have been better to also have the expert give an estimated price. For example, if a knife was estimated to be $60 and it was only $15 vs nice knife he judges more expensive and estimated to be $80 but priced at $250. Being more expensive does not always mean you get the quality you pay for.
fluffy Kun oldin
I generally like these videos but this one had a bunch of no-contest comparisons, and I also wish he'd said which one would be the better one to actually get and use, since with knives it's especially the case that more $$$ isn't necessarily better.

Darthplagueis13 Kun oldin
To be fair: You don't really need an expert to see which of those is more expensive. I mean, it pretty much only requires a bit of common sence that a light knife with a hidden tang and a very simply plastic grip is nowhere in the same price range as a full tang knife with a heavy, ergonomical grip and a bolster, not even to speak of damaskus steel.

Mshojat 2 kun oldin
When he was talking about paring knives (and boning knives too for that matter): "A is a little more expensive than B" is he mentally challenged, or is is definition of "a little" totally backwards? My guess was B being worth like 1-5$ and A being worth like 30-50$- That's not *_a little_* more. Also for the 4$ chef's knife, I feel like that was a hand-made knife (possibly by an amateur) and so they might have only been counting the raw materials not the work or fractional percentage of machine/tool use. It seems way too cheap to buy something like that at a store, unless said "store" was a garage sale or thrift store or something.
