Giveaway - Avant Garde Knife Block and Precision Chefs Knives worth over £150


One of the most important pieces of equipment in a kitchen is a good set of knives. It doesn't matter if you're a chef or a home cook, good knives are really important. It's so easy to have an accident with blunt knives. Blunt knives can struggle to cut through produce and can result in cut fingers. I know, it's happened to be before. A good quality, sharp knife should cut through even the toughest vegetable without too much protest.

I have the most fabulous giveaway for you. A designer knife block and precision knife set from Edge of Belgravia worth over £150.






Knife Block

The Black Diamond angular float knife block is a piece of art for the kitchen. Christian Bird’s design is faithful to Edge of Belgravia’s avant-garde hallmark bringing together innovative design and supreme utility.

Designed for maximum flexibility, Black Diamond is suitable for most knives – as long as the blade is thinner than four millimetres. Tightly packed, it can fit up to 11 knives with easy extraction.

Chefs Knife
Probably the knife I use the most. It's a good all rounder for most of the chopping and slicing you do in the kitchen.The blade has Swiss Ilag non-stick coating to enable precision cooking.

Deba Knife
This is a great knife for slicing straight through fruit and salad in one clean cut. It gives a really crisp cut to peppers, carrots and courgettes for a professional looking salad in seconds. The Deba knife takes inspiration from the traditional Japanese salmon knives, usually called “Deba”. Just as the traditional Japanese Debas, the edge is ground only on one side for a clean cut.


Bread Knife

You must have a bread knife. No other knife cuts so neatly and efficiently through a fresh loaf of bread, baguette or a sandwich. The serrated blade ensures that the bread remains airy and is not squashed whilst cutting.

Small Paring Knife
This is a handy little knife for the small jobs in the kitchen. I use it mostly for peeling mushrooms and slicing tomatoes, but it's great for peeling a lemon, segmenting an orange cleanly, carefully removing the skin of a kiwi or slicing strawberries.

  16. The Chef's Knife is probably the one I would use the most as I do tend to chop/slice a lot of fruit and vegetables and this is a good all-rounder as such. Fingers crossed as I have never owned a really decent set of knives, and as well as making life a lot easier and more pleasant, it might encourage me to tackle dishes I wouldn't otherwise attempt.
