Lightweight and futuristic in design with its angled handle,
the Ceramic knives effortlessly slice, dice and chop
through every fruit, vegetable and protein. 

santokuI derive immense satisfaction from slicing through let’s say a tomato, a slab of cheese or a chicken breast, or cutting paper-thin slices of onion effortlessly and with surgical precision as if I were a Ninja. And I’m even more pleased when I know that the same will happen, time after time — you see, they retain sharpness for years without my having to sharpen the blade.

Not that I dislike doing that, on the contrary. Sharpening knives gives me at the same time a sense of empowerment and of accomplishment as I get the knife into the right angle and concentrate on counting the number of times I will file each side of the blade to razor sharpness.

But since I got the Edge of Belgravia knives, I’ve become lazy. I look contemplating  my knives neatly lined up and stuck to the magnet on the wall, but I hardly ever use them anymore.  Instead, I open a kitchen drawer, pull out the Edge and start chopping, slicing and prepping all my dinner.   I find them right away because of their colorful handle but they can’t join their metal brothers on the magnet.

That’s because the award-winning ceramic series is made of sintered zirconium oxide forged under 300 tons of pressure. So they’re lightweight with anti-bacterial properties.  And the daring lime green rubber handle provides an exciting feel along with a comfortable, soft touch.

The cutting-edge design team for the Edge of Belgravia led by London designer Christian Bird, came up with a bold, confident, contemporary and futuristic design for the  knives without compromising quality.

Mine are the Cermaic Lime series which  includes Slicer, Chef's Knife, Santoku, Utility and Paring knives - each available in Onyx or bold Lime.
