Gift Guide 2020: Cutting Edge

December 12, 2020

There are lots of good knives. There are very few good bread knives. And that is why, when the cookware company Made In introduced a new bread knife designed by Nancy Silverton, it sold out almost instantly.

I waited a day and then had to beg. But it was worth it: the knife is heavier than any other bread knife I’ve encountered, and it slices right through any loaf. The handle feels good in your hand. It also comes in a very pretty ribbon-bound box. And if you’re willing to wait, there’s a list.

But yesterday I received news of a brand new version of the Nancy Silverton breadknife. It costs less – and it has a beautiful red handle. Haven’t tried it myself, but if you’ve got someone who’s spent the last 9 months baking bread, I can’t imagine there’s a better gift.

But if I were you, I’d act fast.
