BBQ season is upon us. It is time for steak! And with that requires a decent set of steak knives (funny video link).
These fine cutting cutlery from Messermeister Avanta are made from X50CrMoV15 German high carbon stainless steel and pakkawood handles. These are tough slicing and carving knives with a 5″ fine edge and an upswept boning tip. The fully exposed tang proves that it’s a single piece of steel. And no, I wouldn’t put these in the dishwasher, show them some love please.
They come with a “The Knife for Life” guarantee that provides a lifetime warranty against material and manufacturing defects.

We are looking at butter knives lately and this one is pretty interesting. At first it looked like it was an electrically warmed piece of cutlery but this knife has a different low tech trick.
The Serrated Warming Butter Knife and Spreader from That! Inventions uses the heat of your hand to heat itself up. Made of dishwasher safe super-efficient copper heat-transfer core and a titanium shell heat conducting technology that utilizes your body heat to carve and spread cold butter. There is also a flat and a serrated side of the spreader.
Oh yeah, and it works well for butter, peanut butter, chocolate spread, cream cheese, and Nutella!

We reviewed a Kickstarter butter knife a while back. This isn’t it, but close, with a bit more. They call it the “Butter Knife Magic, 3-in-1 Spreader, Grater, Slicer, Curler” and it sure does seem to do all that and more. It’s made of 304SS stainless steel with chromium content that makes it dishwasher safe and will never rust or corrode.
But what can it do? It can make butter curls, ribbons or strips. Where the magic happens is when you are dealing with cold stored in fridge butter that just doesn’t want to spread. This is where the Butter Knife Magic 3-in-1 Spreader shines in the cutlery world.
Oh yeah, it even works on hard honey ,cream cheese, hard cheeses and chocolate. A true flatware multi-tasker in the kitchen.

Wooden cutlery has a special something about it. It is never cold to the touch and feels more natural to use.
This cutlery set of six pieces (2 spoons, 2 forks, 2 knives) is 100% handmade in Bali. It is made of reclaimed mahogany wood from Indonesia.
Hand wash with lukewarm soapy water, wipe dry immediately. Do not use in the dishwasher or soak for a long period of time. Every now and then, rub with beeswax / oil to restore color and shine.
