A chef is only as good as his knife, as the folks at Mundial know. The 80-year-old cutlery company—established in Germany by esteemed metallurgist Paul Zivi—utilizes an exclusive high-carbon, stainless-steel alloy that improves the durability and resilience of its kitchen and craft tools. Mundial’s portfolio is vast, with options ranging from the popular hollow-edged Santoku knife to the FreeStyle cutting shears. Standout innovations include its Mundi ergonomic handles, which reduce cutting fatigue, and its specially crafted blades, which are designed specifically for Japanese cooking.
