The Official Knives of Flavortown: Guy Fieri Unsheathes New Knuckle Sandwich Knives

People can give Guy Fieri crap all they want, here at The Manual, we love him. Whether it’s his gimmicky persona (and those recognizable-from-a-mile-away-bleached-tips), or the fact that he is a just a genuinely great dude, we can’t help but revere all that he’s done. Now, to add to the dozens of restaurants, televisions shows, and appearances, bestselling books, and countless other events, Fieri has rebooted his own line of kitchen knives.

Guy Fieri Knuckle Sandwich Knives aren’t new – the knives themselves, which are made by ErgoChef, have been out for a few years — but the design has been revamped for the two sizes — a 7-inch Santoku Knife and an 8-inch Chef Knife.

Santoku ErgoChef

We at The Manual had the chance to test out these knives and were impressed right off the bat. The knives themselves are made from Japanese AUS8 carbon steel, creating a full tang blade that is rust-resistant and incredibly hard. The Santoku knife’s tip is rounded and sloped for fine cutting while the Chef knife’s tip has a “one-of-a-kind” bowie-knife style tip to make for easier fine knife-point work, such as boning chickens. After a few test uses with each, we didn’t notice any decline in sharpness.

The handle, which is fairly heavy, is 4.6” long and is made from military-grade G10 fiberglass resin. The ergonomic design fits easily into most adult hands. While we appreciated the heft of it, we could also see how it might become a little too heavy if you’re doing a ton of chopping. Upon first impressions, though, the weight feels good in your hand. You might even be tempted to re-create the knife scene from Crocodile Dundee. (We wouldn’t blame you, especially with the Chef knife.)

Carrying the Crocodile Dundee thing a step further, the knives each come with a Kydex sheath, which also happens to have a belt clip – for all of the times that you want to holster your Santoku before patronizing a business in Flavortown, obviously.

While the previous line of the knives (which wee produced from 2010-2012) featured Fieri’s signature flames on the blade and handle, we will admit we were disappointed to see those not carried through in the new iteration.

Both knives are available on Amazon. The Santoku knife retails for $125 and the Chef Knife retails for $130.

Shandies and Radlers are summer classics — these are our favorites
Shandies and Radlers are the perfect summer crushers

When it comes to refreshing alcoholic beverages, it’s difficult to beat the appeal of a shandy or Radler. We already love a crisp, refreshing beer on its own, a glass of tart lemonade, or a citrus-flavored soda. So, it only makes sense to combine the two to make an epic, thirst-quenching, boozy, sweet, tart beverage.

Shandies versus Radlers
The classic shandy is a lemon-flavored beer that is made by combining (usually) a 50/50 mix of lemonade (or a lemon-based drink) and a crisp, refreshing beer. Originally called “shandygaff”, the mixture has its origins in England in the late 1800s.

When it comes to summer drinks, isn't there something awfully tempting about a gas station slushie? These drinks may not be subtle or sophisticated in terms of flavor, but there's something undeniably satisfying about the crunchy texture of ice crystals. And for my fellow cocktail enthusiasts, there's a lesson here about texture. You can create something similar in terms of barely-frozen ice that's perfect for summer sipping, and you can do it with far more interesting and complex boozy flavors. It's also shockingly easy to do at home.

How to make prosecco granita
It really couldn't be simpler to make a granita. All you need to do is take a bottle of prosecco (or other fizzy wine of your choice -- even Champagne if you're feeling fancy) and add a few tablespoons of sugar and any other flavoring ingredients you want. Pour your mixture into a wide, shallow pan (ideally, the liquid should be no more than an inch deep for quick freezing) and then pop the tray into the freezer.

Kabobs on the grill

There's something so fun about a kebab...or kabob...or kabab. No matter how you spell it, it's food on a stick, and food on a stick is always a hoot. These grilled little treats are always a massive hit at barbecues for their obvious charm, delicious smokey flavor, and the incredible convenience of having an entire meal on one simple skewer. But in addition to their deliciousness and beauty, there are a few potential kebab pitfalls to be wary of before lighting up that grill. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you grill perfect kebabs every single time.
Choose the right meats

First things first: always steer clear of the pre-cubed stuff they sell at the grocery store alongside the proper cuts. The time you save (about two minutes) is not worth the lackluster, sloppy scrap cuts you get in these packages - not to mention the added cost. Opt for whole pieces, and do the knife work yourself. It isn't hard to cut meat into chunks.
