This new year, we think you should celebrate yourself for being exactly who you are: a pretty decent cook! We also think you should gift yourself the proper tools to make it easier to hone your skills.

Having a good knife can be the difference between an exceptional cooking experience and a nightmarish one. Get it together in the kitchen with a set of Japanese-style chef's knives, now at a tremendous markdown as part of the Same You, New Hobby promotion.

That's right—there's no need to drop hundreds of dollars on a single Japanese blade, like this one believed to be Carmy's knife of choice. Instead, pick up a whole set made of strong high-carbon stainless steel for $69.99.

These Seido knives provide a great balance between sharp edge retention and durability. The forged construction incorporates a sloped bolster that travels gradually onto the blade's face to give you better comfort, control, and handle balance. The 15-degree angle of the knives' faces is sharper than the traditional 25 degrees offered by many Western-style knives. The 8" chef's knife, 7" cleaver, 7" Santoku knife, 5" Santoku, and 3.5" paring knife are all great options to make sure your kitchen needs are met.

These knives are no joke, and there's plenty of satisfied shoppers to back this up. Verified customer reviews note things like, "The knives are super sharp, the handles have a nice feel and balance. Totally recommend these knives if you're looking for a new knife set," and, "Fits the hand very well and are easy-to-use."

Indulge in your hobby without the splurge. The 5-piece Seido Japanese Master Chef's Knife Set for just $69.99 (reg. $249) through January 9, no coupon needed.
