Kitchen Knives

Though they come in all shapes and sizes I named my kitchen knives after a good friend that tested my blades. April Nicolosi is a professional butcher that generally uses stainless steel blades in her daily routine. I asked if she would put my blades to the test and see how they compared to what she was currently using. The first knife I made her was the 6” boning knife with the blue synthetic handle. After using it, she came back and asked for a longer knife and made some suggestions to alter the handle shape. I made her the 8” breaking knife with the gray and black synthetic handle. She normally sharpened her knives daily on a knife steel but the 8” Breaking blade went five days without sharpening when she finally had to run it across the steel. At her last report it was still going strong after three more days of work. I appreciate April Nicolosi for using my blades and giving me input and suggestions so I can create the best performing kitchen knives available.

 

 A 5-piece kitchen set includes an 8” chef knife, 6” mini chef Knife, 4 ½” utility knife, 3” paring knife, and an 8” serrated bread knife. The 7-piece kitchen set includes all of the 5-piece set with the addition of an 8” breaking (carving) knife and a carving fork. The 2-piece carving set can also be ordered separately. Sets can reflect French, German, or Japanese styling and have numerous options of handle materials. The listed prices are for individual knives. We offer discounted prices when knives are ordered in a set.
