March’s Not Another Bill present really surprised me this month. I’ve never had a good set of nice knives (admittedly, that’s mainly because I don’t really cook). It’s always been one of those things that I look at in shops, and then decide to spend my money elsewhere so to open my packaging to find these was amazing!
Opinel are a French company who have been making their wooden handled knives since 1890, and the set I received from NAB are so well made. Opinel’s outdoorsy knives have been exhibited at the V&A, and the MOMA, so their kitchen knives are bound to be amazing.
They come in a great cardboard box which has useful information on it for a kitchen ignoramus like me.
In my set is a paring knife, serrated knife, vegetable knife which has a great serrated edge on the top, and a peeler. I almost don’t want to use them as they’re too perfect.
They go so well with the HK Living chopping board I received from NAB in May last year. If I stick with NAB for another couple of years, I’ll have a kitchen full of iconic items in no time.
