Father’s Day is rapidly approaching and you want to buy Dad something he’d really appreciate. But he has pretty much everything and you’re scratching around for ideas. So here’s the question – is he one of those foodie fathers who loves to cook? If the answer is “yes” then we have some brilliant ideas for you from our range of kitchen knives and accessories.
As the name suggests every aspiring chef should have one. We have a number of different Chef Knives, and they are the go-to multi-purpose knife for countless tasks, including jointing meat as well as for slicing, dicing and chopping almost every food type. The edge of the blade is slightly curved so it will rock on a chopping board – the perfect way to cut. Your dad is sure to use it every day and will be eternally grateful for one that’s of the highest quality!
Japanese Santoku Knife
The Santoku Knife is the Japanese equivalent of the western Chef’s Knife. There are two main differences. Firstly, the blade has hollows along either side which helps prevent cut food from sticking to the blade. Secondly, it has a drop point which makes it easier to perform fine slicing work. What’s with the name? The literal translation is “three virtues” on account of the fact this style of knife is excellent for cutting fish, meat and vegetables – it’s super versatile and your dad will love it.
Not sure which type of knife to get your dad for Father’s Day? Buy him one of our knife sets! We offer a great range, from two-pieces (featuring both of the most commonly used knives – a 7" Santoku Knife and 3.75" Paring Knife) up to five-pieces (ultimate selection of knives for everyday use - 9" Bread Knife, 8" Chef Knife, 6" Chef Knife, 6" Utility Knife, 3.75" Paring Knife).
Our Knife Block makes a great present for the dad who spends lots of time in the kitchen. It not only provides him with just about every type of knife he will ever need (Bread Knife, Chef’s Knife, Santoku and Nakiri Knives, plus a Utility Knife, Paring Knife and Scissors) but they are beautifully displayed and safely stored in a slate effect wooden knife block – perfect for the dad who likes to keep everything in the kitchen neat and tidy!
Electric Knife Sharpener Sharpener
Our knives come in three different ranges, each one featuring a different type of steel - AUS-10 Super Steel from Japan for our Damascus Series, Thyssenkrupp German single layer X50 Ultra + Super Stainless Steel for our Carbon Series and Origin Series. Both types of steel provide an incredibly sharp and long-lasting edge. However, even the best knives will become blunt with repeated use. So if you want to add something extra to your Father’s Day gift (or he already has a complete set of excellent kitchen knives) our electric knife sharpener is just the job. If he’s not sure how to use it just direct him to our blog post on how to get the best from an electric knife sharpener.
Whatever knife or set of knives you buy your culinary-minded dad for Father’s Day one of our Chopping Boards makes a great accompaniment. This one, with integrated storage pots is really clever – once he’s finished slicing or dicing it’s easy for him to slide everything into the appropriate container! But the two other chopping boards we offer have some pretty smart features too.
Happy dad – happy you
With all these different ideas to choose from it’s hopefully a case of Father’s Day gift problem solved! Maybe he’ll cook something really special for you by way of thanks – a classic win-win!
