Neon Slicees




How could you go wrong with these neon Wilmotte Forge de Laguiole knives from France?? The ones shown here are a ridiculous $750. We came across some Forge de Laguile knives (characterized by their sweet little bee details) while we were in Champagne in September. It caught our attention because my Mom had given Jon some for Christmas last year, based on the advice of her Williams-Sonoma-loving boyfriend.

Knowing my Mom's budget, she didn't shell out loads and loads of money for the knives. She found them at Marshall's! It's funny because they have a cult-like following in France, but some people in the US are like whatevs--which is why you can find these fancy knives on the cheap and that is awesome. Win Win.
