Sharp knife clean cuts!
  • John Child

    Hello! My name is John and I have been working in the food service industry for the past 23 years. Since I was a kid I have been fascinated with cooking and knives. This happened to make my decision to work with food an easy choice!

    Over the years I have collected many different pieces of cutlery for my home and for working in commercial kitchens. I received my first chef’s knife (Wüsthof Classic 9’) in 1998 and still use it today. I also use knives made by many different manufacturers including Zwilling/JA Henkels, Miyabi, Victorinox, Mac, and Mercer. For me it’s important to find a knife than feels great in my hand, is fairly easy to maintain, works well for its intended purpose, and looks nice!

    I’m here to use my experience to help you find whatever you need whether it’s for your home, you’re starting your culinary career, or even a gift for someone else!

    I've helped 298 people find the right product - I'd love to help you too!

    John really listened to my needs!
    I was shocked at how well he listened to my needs. Super speedy process I felt like, without compromising quality of service in any way. He only brought to the table what I asked and didn’t try to oversell anything. I’m so pleased with this company, and I will be back for more products in the future.

    THANK YOU, JOHN!
    John was incredibly professional, beyond knowledgable all while being totally personable and fun to interact with. He called right away, and let me know I was dealing with a real human being. So refreshing. He made this experience I was originally dreading, a very enjoyable one.

    John was friendly, interested, and forthright
    John took an hour of his time to listen and understand our project, to propose various options, and discuss their pros and cons. Afterward he followed up with further options and input. He was personable, informed, full of good will, and really worked to find solutions that would be the best for our situation.
