TheChefClub has created a new range of kitchen knives which have launched via Kickstarter to provide the “world’s first uncompromising knife” set at an affordable price. TheChefClub was founded by Elliot Cao together with a group of passionate entrepreneurs and engineers with expertise in material technology, engineering, and industrial design. Launched earlier this month early bird pledges are available from $49 or roughly £38 and worldwide shipping is expected to take place during February 2020.
The development team responsible for creating the “uncompromising knife” set explain a little more about the inspiration and design behind them.
“TheChefClub knives are loved and approved by Michelin-starred chefs, as well as everyday home cooks. Thanks to a perfected fusion of design and technology, our knives are uncompromising from the way they look and feel, all the way to the way they cut and perform. When we started looking for a great knife for my kitchen, we were disappointed: they either looked good OR they performed well, and they were often prohibitively expensive. “
“The ones that focused on design, were almost useless in the kitchen, often having uber-futuristic shapes that compromised on handling abilities (as well as the blade’s material and sharpness). That’s why our knives are made of Matrix powder steel, combined with premium stainless steel using a process called SLS (Selective Laser Sintering). The body is polished and coated in titanium. This gives it a minimal, awe-inspiring look that combines simplicity and raw power.”
