July 25, 2016, Ayer, MA – Gift with confidence this holiday season: pamper the picnicker, raise the bar for the cocktail aficionado, wow the host or hostess, and score big with the tailgater in your life. This compact and convenient board from R. Murphy Knives includes a pick of two knives that fit snuggly and safely into the side of the wooden plank, offering home cooks a beautiful, versatile addition to their kitchen repertoire. A limited quantity is available to select media.

The Murphy Board & Knife Set is the latest in a line of storied products from R. Murphy Knives, an American-made cutlery company in Ayer, MA that’s been in business since 1850.

The Murphy Board & Knife Set is fitted with a knife slot that fits the entire length of a blade for two different knives, providing an edge guard for the knife and safety for the user. The knife is held in place by a strong built-in magnet. The maple board itself measures at 7” x 10”, and has a dark hardwood strip and oil finish.

Consumers can choose from one of two knives to accompany their board: the Jackson Cannon Bar Knife and the Charcuterie Knife. Both crafted in the USA, these high carbon stainless steel blades are precision ground, hand-edged, and honed for a superior, razor sharp edge, offering different benefits to the home chef.

Knife-On-Board-JCBK-LgThe Jackson Cannon Bar Knife design was a collaboration between R. Murphy Knives and Jackson Cannon, award-winning bartender and Bar Director of Island Creek Oyster Bar and Eastern Standard and owner of The Hawthorne in Boston. The Bar Knife has a squared-off blade tip that’s perfect for notching fruit, removing seeds, and slicing citrus peels. Its flush backside can be used to clean up the work area, like a squeegee. The Bar Knife’s handle is stabilized Cocobolo, a durable handsome tropical hardwood that contains moisture resistant natural oils. This board and knife set retails for $125.

The Charcuterie Knife has a fixed blade-style that’s best for slicing hard meats, with the wider part of the blade ideal for spreading pates. The curved edge is also perfect for slicing and chopping. The Charcuterie Knife’s handle is made of beautiful and durable Honduran Rosewood.  This board and knife set retails for $110.
