Servimex and Knives

Many months ago I attened an HR event organized by The  Canadian Chamber here in Shanghai and got to meet lovely Cheryl. We talked shortly and exchaged business cards, as usual for these social gatherings and networking events. Short after Cheryl invited me to visit her store, Servimex, that she runs here in Shanghai with her husband.

Servimex (that you can also find listed in my Where to Shop page) is  a Swiss home furnishing store that specialises in quality European-style homeware at affordable prices.


They have got pretty much anything you might need to furnish your house, from the bathroom to your living room and bedroom


and of course it has got a huge kitchen session, with solid and high qauality cookware,


kitchen tools of various kind


glass and beautiful plates


and solid and sharp knives!

Cheryl was so kind to offer me a set to bring home, and well…you know me, when it comes to presents I just cannot resist.


So I brought this beautiful and super convenient knif set with me and well, ever since it has been one of my best friend in the kitchen.

The set has got a cutting board, a pair of scissors and 3 knives, a versatile one that I use pretty much for everything: chopping, mincing, slicing


a small curving knif


and a big, big chopping one


I mean, this is really big!


This post is to thank Cheryl for her kind gift and to show you guys her amazing shop.
