Your kitchen is only as good as your dullest knife, though we honestly couldn’t tell you the last time we put our neglected sharpening steel to good use. So, forget about…well, forgetting to sharpen your knives and opt for this self-sharpening knife set instead, marked down 42 percent on Nordstrom for Cyber Monday.

The Zwilling J.A. Henckels Four-Star Self-Sharpening Knife Block & Set comes with a paring knife, serrated utility knife, fine-edge prep knife, bread knife, chef’s knife and twin shears. This German gem boasts precision-formed, ice-hardened, high-carbon stainless steel blades with ergonomic, three-riveted handles. They’re super lightweight and easy to handle.

The highlight though is the knife block, complete with self-sharpening storage slots. Every time you put the knives away or slide them out of the block to use, the block will automatically sharpen their edges, meaning they'll always be razor-sharp and ready to conquer your cutting board. Bonus? The block has storage for eight additional steak knives, which will save you some precious drawer space. And that’s a perk anyone can get behind, newbies and wannabe Iron Chefs alike.
