| ChefSteps

There’s a reason that chefs and enthusiastic home cooks the world over are so smitten with Japanese knives. Lovingly crafted from the finest and most durable materials, these sexy, slender blades allow us to achieve perfectly sliced sashimi, delicate chiffonades, and meticulously diced vegetables. Today, even the most famous European knifemakers have mostly abandoned hand-forging, yet the Japanese continue to offer extraordinary made-from-scratch tools, along with innovative hybrids that combine sturdy, factory-created handles with remarkably slender, hand-forged blades. The upshot is an instrument of uncommon beauty and elegance that’s still relatively affordable. Here you’ll find 10 knives that we use, and love, in our own kitchens. Whether you’re looking for an efficient little utility blade to go all day in the kitchen or a long, elegant chef’s knife to up your chopping game, you can’t go wrong with this collection of superior tools.


ROK | Homepage for the ROK espresso maker

The ROK Espresso Maker is the antithesis of pressing a button on an electric machine.   The ROK is the artisan way to enjoy espresso - a non-electric, hands-on creative solution to making espresso the way you want it, without the waste and expense of capsules - there is no lock-in to buying pods. You choose the coffee, you select the grind, you provide the power. By using hand-powered pressure coffee making becomes a more involving pleasure. As you become more experienced you can fine-tune how you use the ROK espresso maker to produce espressos to your personal taste.  Watch the video made by our new distributor for US and Canada. See ROK featured in GQ magazine, here. Best stuff of 2012.

Michael SABATIER - Forgeron d'Armes ::: Accueil :::

Hajime Kimura

his photographic story is the first subject matter that Hajime would challenge himself to portray. The trigger to his passion dates back to a decade ago, when he was just 21 years old. Sitting in the college library he stumbled upon a book that portrayed the life of an ancient Japanese people living in mountainous ranges, only 30 years ago. The tribe was described as being quite apart from the Japanese society as we know it today. The book left a deep impression that marked him for life...

Visual Editions : Tree of codes by Jonathan Safran Foer

An enormous last day of life. “Jonathan Safran Foer, deftly deploys sculptural means to craft a truly compelling story. In our world of screens, he welds narrative, materiality, and our reading experience into a book that remembers that it actually has a body.” –Olafur Eliasson I Wrote a Book

“Ordering Disorder” is an overview of all of my thoughts on using the typographic grid in the practice of Web design. The first part of the book covers the theories behind grid design, the historical underpinnings of the grid, how they’re relevant (and occasionally irrelevant) to the work of Web designers — and a bit of my personal experience coming to grips with grids as a tool.
