The Ex Kitchen Knife Set - Review

I received product for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.


Walk into my home and you might be confused. For the most part, it's decorated with homey and cozy pieces. It's the things you'd see in most everyday households. But, in some corners, I've got quirky and off-the-wall items. I like conversation starters. I like to throw things in that might make a person stop and question my sanity. I call it being eclectic diversified.

I was quite elated when I received The Ex Kitchen Knife Set. It's one of those things that I immediately took a picture of and posted to Facebook. After all, it's not everyday that you see a knife holder of a blue body being stabbed by knives.

There are two versions of The Ex Kitchen Knife Set. One is a plastic model and the other is solid metal. I received a blue plastic set.

The Ex arrived in two pieces, one being the base. The knives were separately boxed within the package. There is easy assembly in putting it together. By screwing the base to the main piece, it holds together.

There are five knives to the set. The Chinese steel knives include an 8″ Chef knife, an 8″ Slicer, an 8″ Bread knife, a 4 1/4″ Utility Knife and a 3 1/4″ Parer.


Each of the five slits on the plastic body are specific to each knife. Fear not, there are plastic sheaths behind each place where the knives go so no one gets hurt or impaled. I've found that you do have to be careful when pulling the knives out or putting them into their designated slots because you can otherwise easily leave scratch marks on the plastic body part. The knives themselves work well for the most part as far as cutting and slicing goes.

The Ex Kitchen Knife Set is a great tongue-in-cheek conversation piece that would make a great gift for anyone who likes off-the-wall items. All products are designed in Italy by Raffaele Iannello. The products are sold worldwide. They are manufactured, and distributed by RICSB, a New York based company that specializes in designer products of all kinds.
Who would you gift The Ex to? Is this a kitchen knife set that you'd use?

I love the term "diversified" to describe your home. I think I'll have to borrow that for my own home. I think the knife "block" is really neat, but for $160 I would have to probably pass. But it really is a true conversation starter. The real conversation starter for me would be that he solid metal set sells for $1,000!! Yikes!

I would definitely use the knife set but I think the price tag is too high! I think a lot of people can relate to knives going into their ex! I'd like to imagine it for my ex!!

This is a great set of knifes. There is nothing worse then trying to cook with a dull blade. If I bought the knifes, does the doll come with them?
