First revealed way back in January of last year, The Federal's gorgeous set of wooden-clad kitchen knives were only objects to lust over, not actually buy. It was a tease, for sure, but enough people apparently said "want" that Warehouse has refined the design and put them into limited production.
The Canadian maple sheathing is now held in place with four rivets to ensure it's always perfectly aligned on the knife's stainless steel core, and since each blade is hand-made, it's guaranteed that no two are exactly alike in terms of woodgrain and finish. Maybe that will make justifying their $US120 price tag a little easier. And if you're the type who always eats out and never cooks, it's a perfect match -- since there's no risk of that gorgeous wood finish getting stained. [Warehouse via Notcot]
