“Gentlemen...they are beauties.”

Yes. I appreciate my tools and want the “very best.” For the last few years, my cutlery of choice has been Shun, a Japanese knife company whose blades are razor sharp and classically minimal. Shun knives are works of pure craftsmanship — a pleasure to look at, to hold and to cook with. Highly recommended. Pure Black, however, may have just given my old Japanese favorite a run for its money.

Designed by HolmbäckNordentoft for Stelton, this set of three knives is “for serious gourmets who are as daring in their style as they are in their cooking.” Built from a solid piece of stainless steel, Pure Black promises a dangerously stylish and enjoyable experience in the kitchen.
