I have to say, I never fail to open emails from Heidi Swanson announcing the latest from her intimate shop, Quitokeeto. Even if there is nothing new, I sometimes just like to lose myself in the serene images of her pristine, marbled kitchen.
But currently, it’s her collection of knives that has me pining for a little more discretionary income. By Coltellerie Berti from Italy and Pallarès Solsona of Spain, these elegant slicers are beautifully balanced and lithe. I especially love the warm bone and wooden handles. A soft touch against the hard steel.
