#7 Wield a Knife Forged by a Master

A knife forged by Bob Kramer costs thousands of dollars, and buying it takes the patience of enduring a wait list at the French Laundry. Luckily, the Bob Kramer by Zwilling J.A. Henckels line offers mass-produced, Kramer-designed blades. Its eight-inch stainless-steel Damascus Chef's Knife, an exquisitely balanced, layered cutter, performs as beautifully as it looks. $400; surlatable.com
