Verve Culture is unique in that each of their kitchen, homeware, and gourmet food products comes with the story of where it is made, by whom, and the history of the item. They operate under the firm belief that exposure to new cultures and experiences brings joy, and I couldn’t agree more. I love that their team works with amazing artisans and craftsmen from around the world that are proud to share their stories of heritage and passion as well as their handcrafted wares.

The history of Thai knives

About 200 years ago, blacksmiths made beautiful, intricate swords for the Thai-Burma war. They passed down their craft in making chefs knives. Today, a whole community is involved in a different part of the steel forging process. Families form co-operatives and have skilled workers dedicated to forging, grinding, stamping, woodwork, and finishing. The result is beautifully crafted knives that aren’t just amazing looking, but also can make prep work in the kitchen a breeze.Thai Moon Knife in hand

The lightweight, carbon steel Thai Moon Knife is named for its unique round shape. The rounded blade allows for a longer cut, which makes it perfect for large fruits and vegetables, like melons and coconuts. Its light, thin blade makes it ideal for preparing hard-skinned fruits, meat, and can even easily cut through bone.Thai Moon Knife The Verve Culture
