British company Edge of Belgravia launched two knife collections at Home 2012, the new homeware and interior accessories show in London that just took place. The Ceramic Series, geared to discerning home chefs, are lightweight with exceptionally sharp ceramic blades made from zirconium oxide, and they’ll stay sharp for years without needing to be sharpened. The collection comes in two colorways: all black and black blades with lime rubber handles. Interestingly, the collection takes cues from the art world in more than just aesthetics: each piece forms part of a limited edition series of 999 pieces.

The company is also launching its all steel Damascus Series. The blades on these knives consists of 67 layers of Japanese high carbon steel. Each layer of steel forms a microscopic cutting edge, giving the blade a near surgical sharpness and anti-corrosive properties.
