Edgecraft Trizor Electric Knife Sharpener
Save $120: The knife is perhaps the most essential tool for any chef, novice or expert. It’s no good if it’s not sharp though (actually, a dull knife can become dangerous in the kitchen). Having a trustworthy sharpener on-hand quickly becomes crucial. Edgecraft’s Trizor Electric Knife Sharpener is pro-grade, and uses a three-phase, spring-controlled system that works on both plain and serrated edges of any thickness and can bring the standard 20-degree edge down to a finer (read: sharper) 15-degree cutting plane.

It doesn’t matter what your cooking tastes like, if you’re serious about the process, you need a sharp knife, period. Right now Edgecraft’s sharpener is $120 (that’s 57 percent) less than its regular full price. — Tanner Bowden

Right now you can get a few pairs up to 30 percent off at Huckberry, including pairs made from canvas, as well as Chromexcel leather uppers. — Andrew Connor

Nisolo Handmade Boots and Shoes
Save up to 80%: With mega factories cranking out shoes one after another, the artisan shoemaker has all but vanished. Those that are left are a special and skilled group of individuals, and the footwear they craft is unique and often expensive. In celebration of Summer’s end, Nisolo, a footwear brand that works with an accomplished group of shoemakers based in Peru’s third-largest city, Trujillo, is offering up a selection of its handmade footwear for up to 80 percent off. The brand’s Chelsea boots, loafers and even sneakers — all made by hand — have never been more affordable.
