Learn more about wholesale chef knives

What kind of chef knives sell best?

Here are some great all-purpose choices to resell:

  • French chef knives 
  • German chef knives
  • Japanese chef knives (Gyuto)
  • Santoku knives
  • Chinese cleavers
  • Utility knives

What material makes a good chef knife blade?

Chef knife blades can be made out of:

  • Carbon steel
  • Stainless steel
  • A mixture (laminated)
  • Ceramics
  • Damascus steel

High-carbon steel chef knives have a more durable edge sharpness and are easier to sharpen in general. However, they need a lot more maintenance than stainless steel knives, for instance. Otherwise, they turn rusty very fast. 

Stainless steel knives don’t need too much upkeep since they’re almost resistant to rust and corrosion. However, low-ticket stainless steel chef knives won’t have that sharp of an edge. 

Laminated chef knives typically use layers of different steel types to improve durability and cutting performance. 

Next are the ceramic blades. These might hold their edge the longest, but they easily chip and can be broken into pieces if you drop them. 

And finally, we have the Damascus steel chef knife. These are high-ticket forged knives that use several alloys to produce. They’re favored for their stunning look and have a lengthier production time. 

Is it worth buying wholesale chef knives from China?

We’ll be honest, sourcing wholesale chef knives from China has its ups and downs.

You have to carefully look to find and vet trustworthy suppliers who will deliver exactly what you need. Be wary of suppliers who tell you prices that are too good to believe – the quality will probably suffer. On a positive note, if you know where to look, China has tons of trustworthy manufacturers that produce quality kitchen knives. 

If you want to avoid making a mistake, let a sourcing agent in China take care of this part. 

Where can I find the best suppliers for chef knives in China? 

You can find good suppliers in many locations in China. However, the best and most famous places for sourcing wholesale kitchen knives or chef knives are Yangjiang and Longquan. These places are full of manufacturers with a rich history of producing knives and swords.

For orders below $1000, you make a full payment at the moment when you place an order. 

For orders above $1000 that are manufactured into your private label products, we only ask for a 30% upfront payment, and the rest only after the production stage is over.
