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.

This Japanese company pioneered kitchenware that uses ceramic blades, which are stronger, sharper and more lightweight than steel. Experience the difference with its chef’s and santoku knives, available with ergonomic handles in your choice of pakka wood or plastic. The colorful slicers and peelers also are sharp ideas, as are the Kyotop gift sets that come packaged with a pocketknife.
