We first heard of Guy Fieri's association with Ergo Chef knives in April of 2009. Two months later, the announcement was made that Guy's company, Knuckle Sandwich, designed a set of two knives with Ergo Chef, released in August of 2009 - a chef's knife, "The Big Stick," and utility knife, "The Dragon Dagger."
In March of 2010, two more knives were added to the set - a santoku blade, "The Chopper" and a paring knife, "The Lil' Guy."
Dillard's 310 locations are now carrying Guy Fieri's four Knuckle Sandwich knives in their stores, and Bed Bath & Beyond Online is carrying Guy's line plus all of Ergo Chef's Pro-Series Knives.
Visit your local Dillard's store and ask about the Ergo Chef / Knuckle Sandwich line of knives, or visit them online at www.dillards.com.
*Update* Guy Fieri is scheduled to make an appearance at Dillard's near Fort Worth, TX, on Friday, November 5, 2010. (source)
Mike Staib, VP of cutlery sales and marketing at Ergo Chef, LLC., recently shared with us that a few additions will be made to the line, new products ready for release in the coming months.
"Steak knives have been a long development process and manufacturing process," Staib wrote. "An average product takes from 6 months at best up to 1 year to produce from the point of having a final design."
The new Knuckle Sandwich steak knives are elegantly designed with Guy Fieri's star logo along an all-black handle. The steak knives will be available in a 4-piece set for $65.00. Mike Staib promises, "these are serious durable steak knives!"
Also a new 17-slot knife block will be added to the collection. "The Battle Station Block" is uniquely designed to hold necessary culinary tools for any great chef or home cook - a meat thermometer and a zester/grater or full-sized Microplane®.
The Battle Station Block also holds 5 kitchen knives, 8 steak knives, a pair of kitchen scissors, an oval sharpening steel or round honing steel.
The steak knives and knife block will be available for puchase in the 2nd week of November, 2010. Limited quantities for the Holidays! To find out more, visit www.ergochef.com, www.Foodnetworkstore.com, www.cooking.com and www.legourmetchef.com.
What's coming next down the Ergo Chef / Knuckle Sandwich chute? Staib clued us in. Notice that The Battle Station Block has "one slot for Guy’s new 6.5-inch Meat Cleaver, coming out February 2011. ... It’s nicknamed 'The Beast.'”
Sorry, no pictures are available yet! But fans can get a sneak peak of "The Beast" on the new season episodes of Guy’s Big Bite this fall and winter. Watch for The Beast!
