    Samurai Kitchen Knives: Slice And Dice Like A Japanese Warrior

    If you spend any decent amount of time in the kitchen, we’re sure you’ve probably purchased a good set of knives already.  So have I.  And as much as I appreciate the fine set of blades squared away in my Victorinox Knife Block, I can’t help but feel I’m ready to give them all up for this set of Samurai Kitchen Knives. Billed as “the ultimate kitchen accessory for the cultural cook,” the fully-functional kitchen knives come styled as traditional [...]

    Pearce Knives Offer Blades With Unique Handles

    You can buy knives most anywhere.  If you want a knife you can impress your buddies with when they come over, though, you’ll probably need to commission a relatively expensive custom from a knifemaker.  Alternatively, you can jump over to Pearce Knives and get yourself one of the unique bladed weapons in their inventory. Ran by Logan Pearce, a third generation knifemaker, the creations feature some of the most unique knives we’ve seen.  It’s not surprising since Logan learned the [...]

  • Federal Maple Set Puts As Much Wood As You Can On A Knife

    Federal Maple Set Puts As Much Wood As You Can On A Knife

    The idea of wooden knives is ridiculous.  Unless you only plan to use it for slicing cakes and similarly soft pastries, it just won’t work.  But what if you used wood for everything but the edges?  The result, as it turns out with Federal’s Maple Set, are functional but exceptionally gorgeous pieces of cutlery. Instead of just being decorative pieces (like the Panorama Knives), the cutting instruments are meant to be used for actual food preparation.  Not only are the [...]

  • Quirky Glide Knife Cleaner Is A Neat Little Kitchen Tool

    Quirky Glide Knife Cleaner Is A Neat Little Kitchen Tool

    Sometimes, a product comes along that’s so clever but so unnecessary that you’re not really sure what to do with it.  That’s how I genuinely feel about the Quirky Glide. It’s, basically, a clip-on squeegee that you attach at the back end of a knife’s blade so you can slide down all the leftovers sticking to the blade after you slice and dice your way through ingredients for tonight’s dinner.  That way, you don’t have to use your bare fingers, [...]

  • Swiss Alps Panorama Knives Look Neat

    Swiss Alps Panorama Knives Look Neat

    I know what you are thinking, these Panorama Knives are going to be annoying to use.  With serrated edges that look like they been gnawed on by a robot rat, you might as well just use a fork to slice your breads. No, they didn’t just pick a bunch of high school blacksmithing reject projects for these knives (although that’s perfectly plausible).  Instead, they’re actually intended to look that way, mimicking the silhouettes of peaks in various sections of the [...]

  • Giro Apple Slicer Makes For Perfect Apple Spirals

    Giro Apple Slicer Makes For Perfect Apple Spirals

    You like fancier ways of doing things.  While some people imbibe their wines as soon as they pop it open, you aerate it first (the long way, too, not fast ones like the Cool Breather) and perform pretentious rituals that make you look like some fancy connoisseur.  At home.  All by yourself.  Because that’s how you roll.  Well, if you want to bring the same fanciness to your daily activity of eating an apple, the Giro Apple Slicer should do [...]

  • Snow Peak Chopping Board

    Snow Peak Chopping Board

    Some people like to stay outdoors while bringing as many creature comforts as they can along, hauling stuff like rugged satellite antennas and pop-up kitchens with them.  For those who prefer packing light, a good tent, a soft bed and  a survival stove are all that’s needed.  If you’re going to cook, though, you might want to bring a chopping board along to fix yourself a proper meal.  The Snow Peak Chopping Board Set should work for that. A fold-up [...]

  • Is This The Most Awesome/Twisted/Scary Looking Dagger Ever?

    Is This The Most Awesome/Twisted/Scary Looking Dagger Ever?

    If you’re going to carry a double barrel pistol, you need to match the awesomeness with a knife that’s similarly over the top.  And I think we’ve found it with the Jagdkommando Tri-Dagger. Designed by Tony Marfione, it’s a knife with three edges, all culminating into one sharp end.  The edges twist, twirl and groove throughout the length, too, making for one blade that’s equal parts confusing and awe-inspiring. You know how when playing a violent video game and the [...]

Sure, your regular knives can slice those juicy pieces of cow and pig just fine.  This one, though, lets you have more fun at the dinner table, sawing delicious animal flesh like you’re cutting wood at shop class.

  • Chop Is A Donut Shaped Mincing Knife And A Weapon

    Chop Is A Donut Shaped Mincing Knife And A Weapon

    Knives are cool.  Knives with unusual shapes are even cooler.  The Chop is a mincing knife that’s shaped like a donut with a half-moon blade and all the awesomeness that description suggests. Devised by the Lucidi Pevere Design Studio, half of the circular contraption is made up of the blade, with the other half serving as the handle.  Because of the shape, you can hold it in a much more natural position while you chop herbs and vegetables into fine [...]

  • Deglon Meeting Knives Use Fibonnaci Sequence To Plot Their Design

    Deglon Meeting Knives Use Fibonnaci Sequence To Plot Their Design

    What happens when you design a set of knives using mathematical computations, rather than their projected function?  Pretty good, as it turns out with the Deglon Meeting, a lovely four-piece kitchen knife set with proportions determined by the Fibonacci sequence. The brainchild of designer Mia Schmallenbach, the lines of each knife were plotted using the average width of a hand as base, with the length of successive Fibonnaci numbers determining how the sides curved. Despite the seemingly arbitrary process, the [...]

While it isn’t exactly the kind of blade that will make muggers quiver in fear, the Key-Shaped Pocket Knife should prove handy for many other uses.  From opening up packages to pulling out a stub on your finger, this miniature slicer [...]

    Fred Table Saw Lets You Slice Cake Like You’re Cutting Wood

    Saw me a piece of that cake, will ya?  Normally, you’d give a quizzical look at anyone who phrases a request that way.  When you’re handling a Fred Table Saw, however, it just makes sense. While it’s clad like a pedestrian wood-cutting tool, the Fred Table Saw is actually a serrated kitchen knife. Best stay away if you’re looking to wax your carpentry skills – it’s for the kitchen handyman’s tool set.  Rather than slice through planks and timber, the [...]
