Bespoke Post is a monthly membership club that delivers high-quality lifestyle products from up-and-coming brands. It’s voted as one of the best men’s subscription boxes of 2022 by our readers and it’s a great box for women and couples as well. 

When you sign up, there’s a quiz to determine your preferences and interests, then you’re matched with a new themed box every month. For $49 per month, each box promises at least $70 in retail value with items ranging from outdoor gear, barware, home, and kitchen goods, clothing, and more. If you're not into the boxes selected for you, there are many others to choose from.

Unlike most subscription boxes, you get to preview your Bespoke Post box before it ships and you can easily swap for a different box or skip the month for no charge. You only pay for the months that interest you. 

This is a review of the "Tsuchime" box.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

First Impressions

 

Bespoke Post always has a good presentation. I should mention there was packing paper so the knife wasn't rattling around in the Bespoke Post box.

Cuisine::pro Damashiro Santoku 6-1/2 inch Knife - Retail Price $120

 

These knives are sharp in more way than one. Subscribers have a choice between the Santoku, Cleaver, and Chef's knives. Or you can get all three for an additional $76 on top of the subscription cost. That's total of $130, which is great considering each knife retails for at least $120. I would have gladly paid for all three, but I already have nice chef's knife and I don't think I'd use the clever all that much. (Although I still want it.)

The santoku knife is similar to a chef’s knife with a more tapered edge and thinner blade to make it more efficient when it comes to slicing meats and cheeses and mincing veggies. The recesses situated above the blade edge helps to release thin slices and sticky food after slicing. Damashiro blades are made from specialist ice hardened Japanese steel which makes them super tough, resistant to shattering, and capable of being hones to a sharp resilient edge.

I've used this knife for a few meals now and have to say it will probably be my go-to moving forward. It's bigger than my chef's knife without being much heavier. The handle widens quite a bit from the blade to the base, which is different, but nice. And the biggest complaint I think I have for my chef's knife is that everything sticks to it as I cut. So the recesses in the santoku relieve some of that annoyance. Overall, a great addition to any kitchen.

Verdict

I don't think I've ever been so quick to pick from Bespoke Post. I've been wanting to expand my kitchen tools and there is no more important tool in your kitchen than your main knife. The santoku can do everything my chef's knife does with a less headache. I like the all-silver look, the widening handle, and especially the recesses. I also like that there were three options for subscribers, not to mention the option to buy all three. I am beyond happy with my choice. I only which I could have gotten all of them. Bespoke, now please to a set of smaller knives to complete my set.

Let's Talk About Value

This items sells for $120. That is $66 saved with this subscription ($54 including shipping), which is more than twice the cost. That is crazy and may be the highest value I've seen from Bespoke Post yet. In this case, with the money I saved, I would seriously consider buying the other two knives. If not, that's plenty of dough to cook a nice meal.

To Wrap Up

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, the "Tsuchime" is available at the time of this post.

Nice knife! My husband got a lot of nice knives from Bespoke Post over the year that he was subscribed. Unfortunately, they offered too many of them and it was one of the reasons why he canceled.

Oooh, that’s a pretty knife! I love a good chefs knife, and that looks like a nice one. The all silver look is striking. I might have to get the set, that’s a deal!

I think it’s a decent set for $130. With some care, you probably wouldn’t need a big knife ever again. Now we’ll just hope Bespoke does a small knife set. Thanks for commenting.

I want all the knives! Couldn’t decide. Wasn’t sure what to use cleaver for but intrigued. Now that I know you like the knife I may get all for husband for Valentine’s Day. Bought him a boning knife for Xmas (the ATK best buy not bespoke) & he is using it for everything. Bespoke post knives/pan boxes are always a huge value. I have 2 pans I got as boxes and have eyed the carving set that comes around for years.

Go for it. You can say it’s for the hubby, but I know it’s really for you. I know the carving set you’re talking about. I’ve always wanted to grab all the knives Bespoke offers, but they have been reviewed before and MSA has a rule about review things twice. So I jumped at this one. Thanks for commenting.
