Unique double-bladed knife developed exclusively for Cooking Enthusiast.

Cooking Enthusiast presents the Half Time™ Knife

"Why has this never been done before? Probably because of the challenges it raises for safe storage, cleaning, and sharpening. We've solved all three." -Terri Alpert, Founder & CEO

Cooking Enthusiast presents THE HALF TIME ™ KNIFE, an exclusive, patent-pending knife allowing home cooks to emulate professional chefs and reduce their prep work in half.

After watching restaurant chefs hold two cooks knives together whenever they have large amounts of vegetables and salads to prepare, Terri Alpert was inspired to create THE HALF TIME ™ KNIFE. This unique double-blade design gives you more surface contact and minimizes rocking motion while maximizing chopping capacity for a quicker, finer chop. It has been invented right here in our test kitchen exclusively and manufactured by America’s oldest cutlery company.


  •     Two 6" beveled full tang blades made of high-carbon US stainless steel precision sharpened to hold their edge
  •     Easy-to-grip handles sculpted from solid American black walnut for hardness and durability
  •     Quality triple brass riveted handle
  •     A magnetic knife stand for countertop display or in-drawer storage is included
  •     A specially designed brush for easy cleaning is included
  •     Easy to maintain sharp blades with the purchase of the accompanying HALF TIME KNIFE ™ Sharpener for the low price of $9.95.

This must-have kitchen workhorse comes with a lifetime warranty and is backed by Cooking Enthusiast’s nearly 20 years of expertise. Special introductory price of $59.95.
