Glimpse your reflection on the mirror-like surface of a Shiroi Hana knife, and you’ll see your most glamorous culinary aspirations glittering back at you. The newest collection from Edge of Belgravia is a $299 set of six steel slicers inspired by Japanese swords. Never mind that your countertops are encrusted under spills, or that you only pretend to know what “chiffonade” is. The sight of these knives—sophisticated, luminous—are meant to evoke the possibility of all that your kitchen could be.
Included in the set—which goes on sale today through Kickstarter—are a full-size 7.5-inch chef’s knife, a shorter 6-inch chef’s knife, a smaller utility knife, a paring knife, a 7.5-inch serrated bread knife, and a 7.5-inch slicer with a rectangular blade. All of the knives have Edge of Belgravia’s signature, soft-angled handle. I was sent a set to test out, and even the large chef knife feels startlingly light and balanced.
