Your Kitchen Is Not Complete Without This $39,000 Knife
Rich Hua stashed this in Just Plain Cool
I'm sorry, did you say 39 THOUSAND dollars?!
Then the irrational lust that tends to overcome a person in the face of something this splendiferous starts to kick in, and we find ourselves sneaking covetous glances at the Nesmuk knife. And imagining the kitchen you’d find it in. As well as the meal that it would prepare. Until the cold, stark reality of the moment returns, and we realize we’re having a Gift of the Magi moment: Owning this knife would leave us with no money left to buy anything to cook.
Which is, in a way, perfect.
Made in Germany from a design that the Nesmuk folks figure is about 3,500 years old and ultimately brought to life by jewelry designers Quintin Nel and Hoffman/Pieper, Nesmuk knives not only have pulled in International Knife Awards (yes, they exist) for best design, but are also crazily sharp. Not just the hand-forged ones, which are known for keeping better edges, but even the stainless steel ones.
And they come with a diamond ring as well. Yeah, doesn’t make much sense to us either, but the knife itself? Oh, she is a beaut.
