Gizmodo has found a very interesting knife sharpener. This sharpener has two stages of sharpening magic - the hard carbide steel blades for coarse sharpening stage and the fine ceramic rods for honing. It even has a slot for sharpening scissors. You won't slip while sharpening with the rubberized base for sure grip which is a very very good thing.

This set of Japanese-style cook's knives are designed for mincing, dicing and slicing. The blades are made of commercial quality, high carbon, Japanese stainless steel, and the traditional Kullens grind on blade helps to prevent food from sticking (trust us - vegetables and meat just slide off). The stainless handles are built for extreme strength and durability, and you can expect a long use out of the durable double serrated edges on each knife.

You know for $1199 or $999 maybe we just aren't spending enough on our kitchen knives, and maybe they're just not that great anyways because they don't do email, web, and run iTunes. :-)

Taylor's Coloured Kitchen Knife Block is a thing of beauty. The five knives sit suspended in a acrylic see through knife block. We love the color variety, and the only issue we could see was not keeping your knife block clean and this looking less than see through, but that could also be a plus because you'll know the interior of your knife block is a bit dirty. Whatever the case you'll get the following knives with this killer block:
- Purple chefs knife 19cm
- Pink bread knife 19cm
- Blue carving knife 19cm
- Orange all purpose knife 13cm
- Green paring knife 9cm

Kuhn Rikon has a new set of farmers market knives that feature fresh colors, and interesting patterns on the knife blades. Coming in Red, Purple, Orange, and Green each knife has a different vegetable inspired design on the blade. The blade is made from razor-sharp Japanese carbon stainless steel. We used the red knife that Kuhn Rikon sent us this morning to prep our kids lunches and the knife worked great. It also comes with a sheath. The sheath makes the knife perfect to take along on picnics and outings.

We've been using this style of multipurpose knife because they're ideal for slicing, chopping, and mincing, and the hollow-ground edge helps reduce friction for easy slicing and releasing food from the blade. This one is made from high-carbon stainless-steel blade retains super-sharp edge over time, and the color is made by bonding food-safe FDA-approved resin to the stainless-steel blade (come on - you need a pink kitchen knife). The non-stick resin coating resists corrosion, makes cleaning simple, and helps blade glide through food with ease. We think any knife shaped like this basically makes vegetable prep a breeze.

This 8-inch multipurpose chef's knife designed for chopping, mincing, slicing, and dicing is just $29.95 and made of high-carbon stainless steel. The blade is conical ground lengthwise and crosswise for minimal resistance while cutting, then laser tested to ensure optimum cutting power. If you don't currently own a chef's knife, then you're missing out on what all purpose means to your cooking regimen. Having a chef's knife means you can get multiple steps in prep done with the same knife.

Kuhn Rikon has sent us over both the smaller and larger version of this herb and vegetable knife. We really like the handle, and the high carbon Japanese steel is sharp. The knife also features a nonstick coating for easy food release from the utra-sharp edge. The matching sheath also helps to keep blade sharp for future use.
