Is This The Preppiest Knife Ever?

When we think of GANT, we can't help but recall the Dead Poet's Society and the WASP-y, Ivy League crop of American boys, blasting their latest Vampire Weekend album. Too much?
Try pairing a KNIFE with that lookbook. Last Thursday night, GANT Rugger launched the fall '12 season by wining and dining their patrons at The Fat Radish, a glam-green eatery on the LES. The designer, Christopher Bastin, (who sadly couldn't join us—he was stuck sick in Sweden) gave wannabe chefs a new reason to get in the kitchen with the debut of the GANT, uh, knife, and, of course, each guest took one home (how's that for a killer gift bag?). The chopper was crafted in collaboration with Wildfire Cutlery, to Bastin's specific needs, made of hand-forged 1085 high-carbon steel with local, eco-harvested Santos Rosewood, and perfectly balanced in construction. Now what "unique specifications" could Bastin possibly need the cleaver knife for? We mean, transitioning from GANT's co-op shirt (a Yale frat boy's staple) to blades is... a lil' extreme, if not a very literal design double threat. "I die" really works here, huh?
