A good chef’s knife is very good thing to have in a kitchen. But when it’s time to try your hand at the fine art of pumpkin carving, the tools required need to be a bit more nimble. I’ve yet to invest in a proper carving set myself (see my Milky Way Pumpkin for my workaround), but I have my eyes set on this New York-made set from Kaufmann Mercantile for next year.
Above: Six blade options give a range of options for perfecting finely wrought details.
Above: The wooden and brass knife comes with a wrench for loosening the lockjaw and swapping out carbon blades. The Pumpkin Carving Set is available seasonally from Kaufmann Mercantile for $21.95; currently sold out. In the meantime, the Pro Pumpkin Kit is available for $22.99 from Warren Cutlery.
Above: If you’re in the market for a simpler knife this year, consider a Carbon Steel Carving Knife. Although it doesn’t have the interchangeable blades of the pumpkin carving set, this knifes has a detail-ready blade and sturdy handle perfect for carving; $22.95 from Kaufmann Mercantile.
