I’m constantly searching for good 🔪 knives that aren’t ugly. Currently I have Slitbar knives from IKEA. I know, whatever, but they’re alright and don’t look terrible. They’re no longer available from IKEA, which is a shame because I think they were the least-bad option there.
But! I also have two all stainless steel MUJI knives (Now we’re friggin talkin) which I really love because 1) they are all stainless steel, 2) MUJI always makes super simple and quality products, and 3) they have nothing to gripe about design-wise. Also if you’re looking for more than a chef’s knife and a paring knife, you’re doing something wrong, friend. I use a chef’s knife 95% of the time.
I’m always searching for a nice, beautiful, likely very expensive Japanese knife (you know the type). If anyone has a recommendation for a simple, beautiful one available on Amazon that they like, let me know! Ideally it would have some tite Japanese ㊙️ inscribed on the sides and a really sexy damascus pattern on it.
I really have no idea how to buy either of these knives so you might be tough outta luck. I bought the MUJI one in the store in Berlin in 2016. Try going into the nearest MUJI store? Here’s the knife on a weird Hong Kong MUJI website.
This a pretty nice review of the Slitbar IKEA knife I have, but like I said, I think IKEA discontinued the Slitbar series, so I don’t think it’s available anymore. I bought it in 2015 from an IKEA in Berlin.
