Know your bros – the Schmidt Bros., that is, brothers Jordan and Jared whose mastery of artisanal-style cutlery is increasing the number of sharp and beautiful knives in kitchens across the globe. The New Jersey-based Schmidt brothers (and yes, they are actually brothers – they learned to love what they do from their grandparents, German and Czech immigrants who owned a butcher shop and deli) make their oh-so-sharp cutlery out of light but durable 100% German stainless steel, forged to last and with a curved heel to protect your fingers, or out of inky black ceramic. The Schmidts use a range of materials – teak, acacia, bonded steel and more -- to make their knives; standouts include the Titan 15-piece full knife set, and the amazing Steel Cut knives, made of steel from blade to handle, so they feel more balanced – and engineered to stand upright on their blades. Also on offer: a range of innovative cutting board and knife blocks, all as beautiful as they are affordable.
