A dull knife is a dangerous knife. For performance and safety in the kitchen, a sharp blade is a necessity. That’s why Habitat knives grabbed our attention. We first introduced one of these knives to you last year. It was a chef’s knife that leveraged a patented alloy developed by Caltech and tested by NASA to make the knife insanely sharp. It was a runaway hit on Kickstarter. Now the brand is back with a Santoku knife and a paring knife that both take advantage of the alloy, as well. Twice as strong as titanium, the patented alloy allows these blades to stay sharp five times longer than your average knife and emerge from the box razor-sharp. Not only that, they’re priced well below what you’d expect to pay for quality kitchen knives. And since they’ve already smashed their goal on Kickstarter, you can back them now and receive them in the not-too-distant future.
