Testimonials from Celebrity and Professional Chefs

“As a baker, I am often asked what my favourite kitchen tool is and most people are surprised by my response; ‘a knife’.

My Personalised Flint and Flame knives are perfectly suited for my everyday kitchen needs, whether baking or cooking.

I rely heavily on my knives to cut, shave and peel ingredients and I find that the excellent quality, durability and handle of these knives allow me to be effortless in the kitchen.

I love my everyday chef’s knife and paring knife. They are easy on the hand, sharp and very comfortable to use. I always look forward to using them and are my trusted tools.

Excellent build, quality and design.”

“As a professional chef, knives are the cornerstone of my working life. They are more than just a tool, they are at the heart of what we do. The alchemy of turning raw ingredients into wonderful dishes.

A great chef knife should fit the hand like a glove and be an extension of the arm. Flint & Flame’s Rhineland Knife range tick all the boxes for me and I’m happy to recommend them.”
