Brilliant Nesmuk kitchen knife and ring

Diamond-encrusted cutlery leads to taste-encrusted beef. Isn't that the rule of thumb? Well, it is for this barbecue. You can't attempt to emulate a hamburger with "5000" in its name by prepping your protein with plastic butter knives. No, you need something equally brilliant and probably heralding from Japan or Germany.

Enter the Brilliant Nesmuk kitchen knife, literally meeting both criteria. Priced around $43,700 from jewelry designer Quintin Nel and Hoffman/Pieper, you may want to invest in a trumpet player and James Earl Jones to appropriately introduce the knife whenever you open its case.

You would think a remarkably detailed blade of carbon steel, a sterling silver handle and eight diamonds could handle cutting through a beef patty just fine. Still feel like there's something lacking? Nesmuk isn't finished yet. Your knife also includes a corresponding diamond ring. Just be sure not to let your polyester kitchen gloves catch on the diamond.

If this all seems a bit much for you, Nesmuk also offers the Exklusiv Crystallized, which seems to have gotten its name from the 647 Swarovski crystals adorning its handle and running onto the sheath. A bargain for about $22,600, but make sure you don't get stuck with dish duty.

Nesmuk says their entire knife collection is handmade to ensure they're among the strongest and sharpest in the world, allowing for unparalleled precision cutting. They don't specifically mention that the knives are ideal for greasy backyard grilling, but they don't say they're not ideal, either.
