Calling all Material fans: The cookware brand behind the favorite cutting board of two Kitchn editors as well the legendary nonstick pan that lasts up to 37 times longer than ceramic just launched a limited-edition color of their incredibly popular knives. Called Lilac Grey, the soft, delicate hue is not only a charming addition to your kitchen but also supports a good cause. With every sale of Lilac Grey, Material will donate 35 percent of profits to support Urban Creators, a Philadelphia-based platform that empowers local communities through food, transformative education, art and celebration.

The Lilac Grey knives comes in two sizes — 4 inches ($50) and 8 inches ($75) — and, just like Material’s other best-selling knives, they’re built to make everyday tasks a whole lot easier. The 8-inch Chef’s knife was carefully designed with performance and sharpness in mind. Made from three layers of tough Japanese steel, it can effortlessly slice through everything from meat to tough vegetables. The knife has a razor-sharp, 26-degree tempered edge, so you don’t have to worry about it getting dull or blunt over time. Its stain-resistant handle gives you a slightly grippy feel, making the knife easy to control. In other words, it’s safer to use and lets you chop more without getting tired.

The Almost 4-inch knife packs in the same benefits as the 8-inch Chef’s knife, with a smaller blade that’s great for slicing chilis or garlic, deseeding vegetables, peeling fruit and deveining shrimp.

Material’s high-quality Lilac Grey knives are the perfect excuse to upgrade to a new blade or add a beautiful color to your collection. Plus, you’ll also have the added satisfaction of knowing that you’ve supported a good cause every single time you slice, dice or chop anything like a total boss!
