This limited-edition Made In bread knife is at the top of our holiday shopping lists


Made In

Made In — one of our favorite direct-to-consumer cookware brands — is heading into new territory. On Monday, the cookware company launched its first ever limited-edition bread knife, designed in partnership with famed chef and baker Nancy Silverton. This union should come as no surprise. Silverton has helped popularize sourdough and artisan breads throughout the US, specifically through her popular LA-based eateries Osteria (and Pizzeria) Mozza and La Brea Bakery. Her baking expertise has lent itself well to designing a knife that actually saws through even the crustiest of breads.

The knife boasts an 8-inch blade, complete with a serrated edge and a rockwell hardness score of 58 — apparently the sweet spot for a knife that’s not brittle, but also won’t easily bend when you’re chopping and cutting.

Armie Hammer Lists Century-Old Tudor-Style Mansion in L.A.

Earlier this year, Armie Hammer and his wife, Elizabeth Chambers, made headlines when they announced that they had decided to legally separate after 10 years of marriage. It makes sense, then, why the Call Me By Your Name actor and the Bird Bakery owner, who share two children, have hastened to list the 100-year-old Tudor-style mansion they purchased together in February 2019.

According to Variety, it’s currently on the market for $5.8 million. Situated in L.A.’s charming Hancock Park neighborhood, the home spans 6,275 square feet and features seven bedrooms and six bathrooms spread out across three floors. The exterior retains much of its original 1920s charm, with leaded glass windows and red brick exteriors, though the interiors are upgraded and now boast a more modern, neutral-toned aesthetic.
