Porsche Design Made a Kitchen Knife That’s as Sharp as Your 911

What if your cutlery had all the precision of a 911? Porsche Designs’ latest release for the kitchen turns that proposal into a reality.

Dubbed the Universal Knife, this sleek blade certainly lives up to its all-encompassing name. Forged from pure Japanese 301 stainless steel, the entire utensil is molded from a single piece of metal for added durability and longevity with a razor-sharp edge. It skips the usual handle designs opting for a faceted ergonomic grip that helps make any prep work especially speedy (i.e., tomatoes will be split into neat slices rather than inadvertently crushed). And measuring 15.2cm (approximately 6 inches) in length, it can suit a wide array of tasks not to mention grip sizes.

Its handling proves especially nimble not only because of its superb construction but because of one of the minds behind its creation. Jörg Wörther was an award-winning

From Car and Driver

  • The Kia Stinger is getting an update, and we now know what its new styling will look like.
  • We also think it will receive updated powertrains, but Kia isn’t sharing details yet.
  • The refreshed Stinger is likely to arrive in the U.S. early next year as a 2022 model.

The Kia Stinger has been around long enough that it’s due for a mid-cycle update, and we now have photos of the updated 2022 model that should arrive in the U.S. next year. Its styling is slightly sharpened and we think the freshened design looks good inside and out.

Changes to the front end include new LED headlights, while the rear boasts a cool new taillight design that stretches the full width of the decklid. The turn signals’ LED elements are meant to look like a checkered flag. New 18- and 19-inch wheel designs are also on

As a homeowner, you may have a long list of projects you plan to take on. Americans collectively spend $400 billion a year on home remodels to improve functionality and make their living experience more enjoyable, according to the National Association of Realtors’ 2019 Remodeling Impact Report.

But while a home reno might come with benefits, it’s easy to go overboard. Some upgrades aren’t worth the time and money involved, especially if you want to recoup some of the cost when you put it back on the market.

To dig up five home renovations that aren’t worth their price tags, we consulted the NAR report, Remodeling magazine’s 2020 Cost vs. Value report, and a few other resources. Here’s what

From House Beautiful

Part of being an interior designer is knowing the vocabulary. A good designer can discuss Kuba cloth, Greek Revival architectural details, and clerestory windows with ease. But there are other words in the design lexicon that have more fraught backstories, including origins in colonialism, prejudice, and slavery. Recently, the internet was abuzz when TMZ revealed that the Houston Association of Realtors dropped “master bedroom” from listings because some realtors felt “master” was a reminder of slavery. Many builders began shifting to “owner’s suite” a few years ago because that includes buyers of all genders (House Beautiful has dropped the term from its style guide in favor of the simple “main”).

But the truth is, there are many more examples of how problematic history has permeated our vocabularies. And in order to make an effort to combat systemic racism, we must commit to
