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.

TELLER COUNTY GUIDE: A passion for home design: Karrie Stimits, Woodland Designs | Pikes Peak Courier

Her first job was working in her dad’s construction business doing whatever needed to be done — from siding installation to job cleanup. All these years later, Stimits continues this inspired focus.

“Interior design is a creative outlet for me being able to transform a space for someone to what they truly want it to be. The process as a whole is very satisfying,” she said.

Stimits started her own business, Woodland Designs (woodlanddesigns.net), in 2015, which she recently moved to a new location at 800 Research Drive, Suite 210, in Woodland Park. Her plan is to have a grand re-opening in spring of 2021, once she is settled into her new space.

At Home: HGTV’s ‘Good Bones’ star promotes inclusivity in new kids’ book | Lifestyle

I’ve always said, I do not see a line between where home life stops and home design begins. It’s a blur to me. Mina Starsiak-Hawk, the star of HGTV’s home renovation show “Good Bones” and author of a new children’s book, “Built Together,” agrees and has taken that viewpoint a step further.

The premise of her book is that the same principles should apply whether building a house or building a family.

In “Built Together,” adorably illustrated by Barbara Bongini, the little boy narrator wonders whether his mom and dad will need a hammer and nails to build a family, or maybe they’ll need a drill and monkey wrench, tile and grout, bricks and mortar, paint and brushes. Whatever the case, he wants to help.

Spoiler alert: He eventually learns the building blocks of a home are kindness, love and inclusivity.

“I wanted to show young readers that families come
