Forget about stainless steel edge blades. If you want kitchen knives with blades that stay sharp longer (very much longer) and one that befits your high-tech lifestyle, then these NASA Inspired Kitchen Knives by Habitat Housewares are what you need. Featuring a patented metal alloy developed by Caltech and tested by U.S. space agency NASA, not only is the blade edge of these knives extra-sharp, but they will stay sharp fives time longer than regular knives.
Furthermore, this decidedly space-age material is twice as strong as titanium, made even more durable through a patent-pending bonding process that fuses this out-of-this-world material to a stainless steel knife body. Also referred to Habitat 2.0, the new Santoku and Paring Knives are two follow up to the successful Habitat Chef Knife introduced last year. This technological breakthrough in material engineering is licensed by Habitat Kitchen Knives from Caltech, these knives will literally give you an edge in when you slicing and dicing in the kitchen.
If you really need to know, the Caltech’s tech infused knives have a sharpness and durability indexes of 190.3 and 1,297.3 (based on CATRA Analysis), respectively – which are many times over major knife brands. Other distinctive features include a tip that is thin and sharp designed for precise detail cutting, perfectly weighted and balanced so it’d feel like an extension of your hand, and the super obvious gorgeous, ergonomic handle made out of pack wood.
If you want one, then you will want to join over 2,000 backers on Kickstarter in pre-ordering it. Prices start at $49 for the pre-production run Paring Knife and $69 for the Santoku Knife. But don’t procrastinate for too long because, the campaign will end in less than 48 hours.
