I’m all for having a really good set of knives in your kitchen, but if you want a set that can not only slice and dice, but also start a conversation, and put a dent in your bank account, check out the Déglon Meeting Knife set.
Made from a single piece of steel — with proportions determined by the Fibonacci sequence (you math geeks and Da Vinci Code fans will know what that is), cut with a laser, and hardened by a special hydrogen heat treatment — this set of four knives is painstakingly sculpted so they fit perfectly together to form what looks like one large knife.
But all that precision and artistry will cost you. Since they’re so hard to make, and the fit must be exact, Déglon can only make about 200 sets each year. Plus the Museum of Contemporary Art carries them, so not only are they limited edition, but they are a work of art for your kitchen. Let’s see you try to slice a tomato with a Warhol.
