Day 12 – House of Knives

Todays giveaway: House of Knives

Andre and Q (owners of House of Knives) as well as Chef Colin Burslem have been friends for a number of years. These three folks do so much for the community it warms my heart to introduce (or re-introduce) you to them. This is a very special prize we have created for you and I hope the lucky winner gets as much joy from the experience as we do from giving it away! Good luck.



Prepare, roast, (and enjoy) the finest of prime rib dinners like a pro!

With the best tools and ingredients provided and paired with experienced teachers to show you the ropes, there will be no more excuses to stay out of the kitchen. 

Start with a 28-day aged Angus Certified Prime Rib courtesy of Intercity Packers and a virtual cooking class from Chef Colin Burslem, who will demonstrate how to prepare and roast your prime rib to perfection! 

We then provide you with the tools—a set of Kori Artisan knives that perform as well as they look…and they look good. Each blade has a core of Japanese VG10 surrounded by 36 layers of hammered steel that creates a beautiful layered Damascus pattern. Finished with a riveted linen micarta handle for ultimate comfort and durability, and a traditional mosaic pin and end cap, these knives are a work of art. 

But, the tools are only as good as its user, so prepare to be inspired and empowered by a virtual knife skills class from Andre Eng, owner of House of Knives. 

The Kori Artisan 8″ Chef Knife is an ideal multi-purpose knife. Specifically shaped to excel at nearly every task in the kitchen, the chef knife is great for chopping, slicing, mincing, dicing, julienning, you name it. The wide belly allows you to get a rocking cut for quickly cutting up vegetables or herbs. And with the half bolster design on the Kori Artisan, you get full use of the blade and ease of resharpening.

Kori Artisan knives are handcrafted for beauty, function, and superior performance. Taking over 60 steps to complete each knife, Kori Artisan uses advanced materials and crafting techniques to ensure your knives last you years. Each blade features a Japanese VG10 core, surrounded by 36 layers of hammered steel to create that beautiful layered Damascus pattern. Finished with a riveted linen micarta handle for ultimate comfort and durability, with a traditional mosaic pin and end cap.  Every Kori knife has been crafted to the highest standards of quality and workmanship that’s why each is backed by a lifetime warranty covering any defects in material or workmanship.
