Shiroi Hana Chef Knife Collection
Edge of Belgravia debuted last year on Kickstarter with the most successful chef knife campaign ever (over $2 million in funding). Just launched for pre-order, their new set of AUS-19 Japanese steel chef knives (paring, utility, bread, slicing and two chef models) has 67 layers of alternating steel and a light Damascene floral pattern. Complete sets start at $300.

Linen Ball Cap
A lightweight cotton/linen blend, available in either faded indigo herringbone or a navy slub. Made in Connecticut and perfect for the month or two of heat remaining, American Trench’s ball cap is currently 20% off.
