There’s no doubt it; when it comes to kitchenware Le Creuset is the gold standard. Everyone has their favourite Le Creuset colour and almost every woman out there (even the ones who don’t spend much time in the kitchen) has hoped and dreamed of one day having a kitchen stocked with nothing but Le Crueset. But did you know that our favourite kitchenware brand has recently expanded their collection to include a range of stunning Le Creuset kitchen knives too? The WomenStuff team did a bit of research and got the low-down on this absolutely fabulous new addition to the family.
The new knives hit the shelves at the end of February this year and in true Le Creuset style they are made with the very best materials. The blades are made from 64 layers of Damascus steel folded around a VG-10 steel core and hold a finely sharp edge that allows you to perform any kitchen task with ease. The handles are pretty much a work of art and are crafted from a beautiful, yet durable Italian Olivewood. The best part of using Olivewood for the handles is that it means no wooden knife handle is the same; each handle has it one unique character and look.
Customers can also choose to opt for the stainless steel or black plastic handle option, which use a premium high carbon Stainless Steel Alloy. The Le Creuset knives start from R900 and are available at Le Creuset stores as well as their online shop. Click here to shop now.
