A man without a knife, is a man without a life. Alright, fine, this isn't the frontier, and the closest you come to a duel is when you and your significant other can't decide between sushi and pizza takeaway, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be equipped with one of the most essential tools ever created. A far cry from the chiseled rocks of our early ancestors, the pioneering knife-makers at France-based Deejo have perfected the knife for the modern man.
Started by two friends fed up with the lackluster quality and clunky construction of traditional kitchen knives, they set out to design a product that would not only cut circles around the culinary competition but serve as a multifaceted machine, well-equipped for slicing through an apple, a rope or anything else life throws its way.
The result is a stylish, feather-light, endlessly customizable testament to modern design. A razor-sharp steel blade and slim, yet firm handle give it a minimalist look but solid feel. If you like a more traditional color scheme, opt for the mirror or grey titanium blade, or if monochrome is more you're thing, choose the black titanium finish like I did. With your choice of five different types of wood for the handle, you're sure to find one that catches your eye. If you want an even more personalized knife, they also offer a unique set of tattoos for your blade. And just in case you're worried someone might mistake your new knife for their own, your inscription on the handle will remind them who's boss.
