Look! Heirloom Cake Cutter

Just before the cake was cut at a wedding we recently attended, we saw the mother-of-the-groom ceremoniously hand this family cake cutter to her new daughter-in-law. What a sweet moment!

In these days where everything seems to be shiny, new, and ultimately disposable, treasured kitchen tools like these are a real rarity. We think that's a shame since these kinds of heirlooms are often artistically designed, very well-made, and carry stories from past generations.

Do you have something in your kitchen that's been handed down through your family?
