I don’t do much in the kitchen, but my wife recently got a “trio of knives” from Material and they damn good. In fact, you wouldn’t think $150 would yield such steel, fit, and finish. Highly recommended.
I’m a huge fan of Pioneer. They use materials that others don’t dare to and they do it with a smart eye on design. And while I have yet to try their new pouch line, they look dope as hell. Recently, they launched a collaboration with WESN… Essentially, it’s a Pioneer Global pouch packaged with a titanium micro blade from WESN.
