Fusionwood knife

Every kitchen should be stocked with a good set of knives. Whether you’re a cook or baker, a good knife will always come in handy. Good quality knives that are kept sharp will last for years and can save time in the kitchen on a daily basis, shaving minutes off of prep times (which add up after a while) and generally making life easier. You don’t need a super expensive knife to have a good quality one, but since they last for such a long time, they’re often worth a little splurge in my book. A new knife I tried recently is from Fusionwood line, which is part functional kitchen tool and part work of art.

The Fusionwood knives have handles made with hardwood veneers that are dyed bright and beautiful colors and layered together, then sealed with resin to create a durable handle. They come in a whole variety of colors and styles, from little paring knives to 6-inch Chefs’ knives (like mine, pictured) to big bread knives. I particularly like the colorful knife block that is designed to contain a whole set of them.

In terms of use, my knife holds an edge well and sharpens easily. The small size of a 6-inch blade makes it a great all purpose knife around the kitchen. I also like the shape of the handle and the overall lightweight feel of it, as it makes it easy to work with. That said, you’re definitely going for looks when you get a knife from this collection – and that is not a bad thing! It’s just one more reason to get a nice looking knife block so that you can display these instead of sticking them in a drawer.

    A good knife in your kitchen is invaluable as it is used almost everyday. I just purchased a magnatised knife holder and love the easy access to my knives now. This is one item I believe you should splurge on in your kitchen!
