“I have been a professional chef for over 35 years and have done hundreds of cooking demonstrations, lectures and events all over the globe. I have always travelled with the same basic set of tools wherever I’ve gone. They’ve always worked for me and now I want them to work for you. I present to you BLADES, designed after these knives to be practical and affordable. Ask yourself…why did you buy that last set of knives? So often, so many sets have 3-4 knives you never use. With this collection, it’s about functionality…each knife has multiple and frequent uses and collectively they can tackle almost every challenge you will meet in a kitchen.”

About the Chef

Celebrity chef and cookbook author, Rick Moonen, has been the country’s leading advocate for the sustainable seafood movement for the past 25 years, bringing national awareness to this subject near and dear to his heart. His flagship restaurant, Rick Moonen’s rm seafood at The Shoppers at Mandalay Place in Las Vegas, showcases his commitment to sustainability without foregoing culinary creativity and innovation, and has been critically acclaimed by local and national press alike.

In 2010, Rick made a memorable appearance on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, nearly taking home the title and raising thousands of dollars and national awareness for Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas, In May 2011, Monterey Bay Aquarium honored Rick as their “Chef of the Year” for his tireless efforts towards sustainability. In 2013, USA Today named him one of Earth’s “Power Players” as one of five leaders helping the health of our planet and was named “Humanitarian of the Year” by the American Culinary Federation. Latter that year, Rick transformed rm upstairs into a steampunk-inspired restaurant and lounge named Rx Boiler Room, with décor reminiscent of industrialism during the 19th century Victorian era. Combining the alchemy of food and drink, Rick showcases his spin on classic comfort food, offering guests a variety of playful creations in small and large plate portions, ideal for a shared dining experience. Most recently in 2016, Rick was a James Beard Foundation award semifinalist for “Best Chef in the West.”
