Objects to make the heart grow fonder...
There are some items in our shop that elicit a little more enthusiasm than usual. We identify these items when they draw exclamations of delight from usually stoic Saelan. He’s our handsome bearded colleague, perenially well-dressed and with a well-honed eye for quality and practicality. We’re pleased to tell you that our new line of Opinel kitchen and pocket knives have met Saelan’s lofty standards.
Opinel knives come standard with Beech and Olive wood handles and easy maintenance stainless steel blades. For the kitchen, we have options for paring, filleting, and slicing as well as chef’s knives, steak knives and carving forks.
Pocket knives have comfy curved handles and a simple lock mechanism that keeps the blade open. There’s even a corkscrew-knife combo, a handy (and Saelan-Approved) gadget for perfect picnics. From where might these timeless and eminently stylish knives hail? France, but of course, as they have since 1890.
Starting at $15 for a paring knife, $25 for a pocket knife and $75 for a chef’s knife.
You can't pick your family...
If cast iron is the patriarch of the kitchen family and stainless steel the matriarch, then enamelware must certainly be the sassy aunt. Aunt Falcon (indulge the metaphor, please) hails from Crawley, UK and was born in the 1920s. She’s no spring chicken, but is having quite the resurgence in popularity of late. As she likes to say, “what’s old is new!” And unlike her cast iron relative, Auntie is light as a feather. She will chip if you drop her, but is usually still good to go even after a nasty spill. In fact, we like our Aunt Falcon a bit, um, weathered. You will too. Safe on the hob or in the oven up to 530F.
Falcon’s baking set comes in red and white OR blue and white.
