Despite conjuring thoughts of those Russian nesting dolls, this set of knives designed by French company Delgon, under the guidance of Mia Schmallenbach, are a genuine work of art. These multi-award-winning knives (Yes, such a thing exists) are the perfect accouterment to any culinary wannabe and an awesome housewarming gift.

Built from high-quality steel, these meticulously crafted knives include a 3-1/4″ paring knife, a 5-1/4″ utility knife, an 8″ chef’s knife, and an 8-3/4″ slicer.

You do admittedly have to have some crazy grip strength to get them out, but they do feel very secure, pack away neatly and reduce your chance of cutting your fingers when you put your hands into the drawer.
