Knives are a chef’s most valuable tool. Eric Ripert, co-owner of Le Bernardin, carries his in a custom designed Louis Vuitton trunk. So whether you’re cooking at home or at a Michelin-starred restaurant, it’s worth it to have good knives. Bonus points if they look completely badass.
The Furtif Evercut collection collection checks both boxes. The steel knives have a laser bonded titanium carbide surface that performs 300 times better than regular steel knives that are currently on the market. Average users will only need to professionally sharpen these knives after 25 years of use (the knives will be old enough to drink by that point). The geometric facets of the handle feel natural in your palm and add to the stealth bomber quality of the all-black knives.
The knives range in price from $78 for a paring knife to $138 for a chef’s knife and are available at A+R.
