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

guy fieri santoku knife

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.

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.

Ants in the kitchen: Banish these obnoxious house guests once and for all
how to get rid of ants in the kitchen version 1651695322 on counter

Ants are the worst kind of house guest. Uninvited and unwelcome, they brazenly and take up residence in your home, acting like they own the joint. The worst part is they tend to favor the kitchen, sneakily creeping in and stealing your food like a kid home from college. While there are more harmful pests than ants, there’s something just plain gross about these tiny creatures — they can get into almost everything, including your pantry and food containers.

If you've noticed even one ant crawling aimlessly in your home, there are probably thousands more. Isn't that a fun thought? Ants tend to move indoors during the warmer months, the two most common types being odorous house ants and carpenter ants.

best recipe apps man using smartphone while preparing food in the kitchen  close up

Last year, we all spent a lot of time on our cell phones searching for recipes. Our new normal has led us to get in touch with our inner chefs. We also learned that searching for recipes via the web on your mobile device can be a laborious task in and of itself. Nine times out of ten, when you find a recipe that looks good, you're directed to a food blog where you have to scroll through pages of the author's story about the dish's history, where they got the ingredients, what the food means to them, and other SEO filler. Not to mention the pop-up ads!

If you haven't realized it by now, this is where recipe apps come in very handy. In some instances, you'll have to endure ads (mostly in free apps), but in most cases, recipe apps are direct and to the point. They take you to the recipe, with a clear list of ingredients and how to prepare them. They have a photo with the finished product (which you hope you can match), and that's it. Some apps even have set-by-set video instructions that will walk you through the cooking process. Unlike food blogs, you can choose to click on additional content. Plus, depending on the app, they have tons of other useful features. There are even apps dedicated to your dietary restrictions (plant-based/vegan, keto, etc.).
