Gift Guide 2015: Have Knife, Will Travel

December 16, 2015


They call it “The Greyhound.”

Ashley Christensen (2014 James Beard award winner for Best Chef Southeast of Poole’s Downtown Diner in Raleigh, NC), was in New York last week with a group of women chefs, cooking a charity dinner. When I asked how she carried her knives, she showed me this wonderful knife clutch.

It’s made out of heavy duty waxed canvas, with a pocket on the inside that closes with snaps. There’s room for five knives, and an entire kitchen battery of spoons, steels and microplanes. It closes with a leather strap, and would be perfect for any traveling chef.

“Oh yeah,” Christensen added modestly.  “I designed it.”

$130 very well spent dollars.

Incidentally, if you’re looking for a smaller, less expensive version, the same company, Hawks and Doves in Raleigh, also makes this version of a knife clutch.
