Chroma USA’s newly introduced Robert Irvine cutlery collection stems from a collaboration with the celebrity chef established to develop a line of high-quality, financially accessible knives for any home cook, according to both the company and Irvine. Irvine is best known for such television programming as “Dinner: Impossible” and “Restaurant: Impossible,” where he took on food prep and cooking challenges in people’s homes or in failing restaurants.

The Robert Irvine cutlery assortment from Chroma debuted at last month’s International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago in three key knife styles. The set includes a 4-inch paring knife, 7-inch Santoku and 10-inch chef’s knife.

The new Robert Irvine knives are forged and have a full tang, as well as riveted POM handles. Available now, the 4-inch paring knife will have a suggested retail price of $41.95, the 7-inch Santoku, $61.95, and the 10-inch chef’s knife, $69.95. A four-piece set that includes the three knives and a roll bag is also available.
