Remember that blush pink Yamazaki dish rack at Food52 I posted about a while back? Well, I wasn’t expecting this AT ALL, but you know what I got in the mail this week as a thank you from Food52? No, not the dish rack (which I already own in white), but…a set of three pink knives. PINK KNIVES!!
Now, like I’ve said before, clicking around on Food52 is how I often wind up coming across things I really don’t need but definitely want, so I’d already seen the knives in their shop. Not just the pink ones, but the whole collection of multicolor Five Two Essential Knives. Every color they offer is beautiful, but the pink! You know how I feel about pink.
I’ve been using these knives for the past few days, and not only are they lovely to look at, but they’re really nice to use, too! Heavy, solid, and super-sharp. They feel really good in the hand, which isn’t something I’d ever really considered about a knife before. Hey, I’m no chef!
Also, can I just say that the serrated knife is a DREAM to use for cutting both tomatoes and bagels? I’m SO excited to own a good serrated knife. The one it’s replacing (and this is not an exaggeration) came from a dollar store when I was in college…about 25 years ago. So this is a pretty major upgrade. And no, this isn’t a sponsored post. I’m just really into these knives, and it was exciting to get something in the mail that wasn’t, like, bulk sacks of dried lentils or off-brand hand sanitizer.
By the way, those bagels from Zabar’s? Geninne returned the gesture and had them sent to me, and that makes TWO fantastic mail deliveries in one week. (Zabar’s is still open and delivering treats all over the country, by the way!)
If you need new knives (or you want to give someone some gorgeous knives as a gift), I can’t recommend these Five Two Essential Knives enough. ALL of the colors are on sale right now, too!
p.s. Sanitize your mailbox daily, and tell your mail carrier they’re awesome—from a distance.
