Best Made Co. Toshiki Kitchen Knives
We have a bit of a kitchen knife fetish. It is arguably the most important piece of equipment in the kitchen, and a good one in some practiced hands is truly an amazing thing. Historically, we have been partial to Global Knives, as we like that high carbon steel which has a razor light edge and is light in the hand. However, we do covet Shun Premiere Series with hammered finish...but we digress. The newest objects of our affection is the Toshiki Kitchen Knives, crafted by Toshiki Nambu exclusively for Best Made Co. The 71 year old Japanese forge uses high content white carbon steel and magnolia handles to make a knife renowned for their edge retention and superior balance, and the above set (Nakiri, Santoku, Petty, and Paring) will become the new work horses in your kitchen. You can see and learn more here.
