We have reviewed 3 models of 3 different classes of knifes - an entry level model suggestion, higher class mass market model and a premium one.
Zenport K113 Row Crop Harvest Knife: An Entry Level Microgreen Cutting Knife
This Zenport model is both affordable and reliable.
It has a mini-machete shape, although it doesn't hold an edge perfectly.
If you sharpen the edge will help you make de-seeding and taking the stem off freshly roasted green chili's much easier!
It weeds fast by cutting the weeds off at or below the root area. It doesn't pull it out by the roots, but does speed up weeding
Extra tip: Purchasing a leather sheath to hold it. Anything less isn’t safe.
Investing just a bit more could be a wiser decision.
Mercer Culinary Millennia 6-Inch Produce Knife, Green
Mercer Culinary has the most famous 6-Inch Produce Knife you can get on Amazon.
The highest quality Japanese steel facilitates easy blade maintenance and rapid sharpening for a razor-sharp edge. Hand wash knives for blade edge and surface care. One-piece high-carbon, stain-resistant Japanese steel.
Reading the reviews on Amazon is probably the wisest thing you could do to find out what people are saying about it. There are currently more than twenty thousand reviews and some of them got over 500 and even over 1,000 upvotes.
It comes with a handy ergonomic handle – a combination of Santoprene for comfort and polypropylene for durability.
- Textured finger points provide slip resistance, grip, and safety.
- It's a beautiful one-piece high-carbon, stain-resistant Japanese steel.

The Cutco model reviewed below is the highest class type of knives we would like to tell you about. It comes with CUTCO Forever Guarantee. It provides lifelong warranty and replacement.
Cutco is one of the largest manufacturers and sellers of high-quality cutlery in North America.
It's sturdy and far easier to use this model compared to the ones mentioned above. What you'll really like is the way you'll feel it in your hand.
It holds an edge much longer than most other knives available on the market today.
This item is also a great gift idea.
Probably the only disadvantage of the brand overall is that they are a bit more pricey.
With only three knifes reviewed in this post we are definitely missing other people's favorites.
If you are a farmer yourself, please share what's the model you missed the most seeing here. It's really a matter of personal preference.
A curious fact: You might be surprised, but there are farmers that are not cutting their microgreens at all. They deliver it with the hydroponics medium they used to grow in. It keeps the veggies fresher for a longer time which appeals to some restaurant owners.
