The Perfect Fruit and Vegetable Knife

This unique blade is one of those amazing knives they might not know they needed. This Japanese-style knife is a master of versatile produce prep, and turns tasks like slicing, dicing, and mincing into a simple, relaxing pleasure. What’s more, the dimpled edge allows small air pockets to form during chopping, which prevents food from sticking to the blade. Check off their wish list with an essential they’ll use morning, noon, and night.

Gifts for first time host

For the First-Time Host

Help them host with style and confidence! Whether celebrating a new home or hosting for the first time, elegant steak knives and a premium carving set are the ideal tools for seamless entertaining. The extra sharp blades of our Gourmet Steak Knives cut perfectly through meat and vegetable dishes and complement any table setting beautifully. When it’s time to serve, the long Gourmet Carving Knife and precise, narrow-pronged Gourmet Kitchen Fork will help them feel like a pro from the first slice to the last.

Cutting-Edge Essentials

Did you know the three most important knives in any kitchen are a chef’s knife, a bread knife, and a paring knife? With the Performer series, these essential blades combine centuries of expert artisanship with cutting-edge technology. Precision forged, each blade is enhanced by a stunning Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating, which makes our steel uniquely strong and long-lasting even after frequent use in your kitchen. Handles are fitted with our innovative Hexagon Power Grip, a non-slip honeycomb design that guarantees each slicing moment is safe, comfortable, and precise. What’s not to love?
