    That is beautiful. From the New Yorker Article: [​IMG] On a shelf underneath were the tools—whisk, mandoline, oyster-shucking knife, shears, and an apple corer. “I like to use apples with fish, because it’s very acidic,” Ripert said. He showed how to use one of the knives to cut meat off a bone, at an angle. “Like a slalom. It is perfect for boning!” A female employee from Le Bernardin started giggling. “Did I say a bad word?” Ripert asked. “Deboning,” the Vuitton man said. Champagne was poured, and Ripert made a toast. “In life, you appreciate things,” he said. “But it’s important not to get obsessed.” http://www.newyorker.com/talk/2011/0...alk_widdicombe

    tacky.

    Good color and none of that LV logos. If you're not paying attention you wouldn't know that its LV.

    That doesn't make it any less tacky.

    Well, if you were a famous chef, how would you choose to transport your cutlery?

    I am a famous chef, and I transport my cutlery by using the smaller fold-up leather holder that you see in the underneath section of Ripert's case.

    Now that I think of it, it reminds me a bit of the briefcase that the repairman has in Toy Story 2 to polish and sew Woody's arm back on.
