Your Cutlery Helper Identifies 4 Kitchen Cutlery Trends Making 2012 Christmas Shopping Colorful and Inexpensive

Roanoke, Virginia (PRWEB) August 31, 2012

Labor Day 2012 is upon us and soon shoppers will start thinking about Christmas. Shoppers visiting local or online kitchen stores will be excited to see name brand cutlery product lines in new colors and at prices easy on the wallet. Cutlery manufacturers have exciting new products to show this year. Kitchen knives with handles in a wide variety of shapes and materials will make Christmas shopping 2012 a true joy.

Mark Jala, founder of the Your Cutlery Helper website,, wrote an article for the website that looks at 2012 cutlery trends, and whats available from cutlery manufacturers. The first trend Mr. Jala cites is the introduction of vivid colors for cutlery handles. Wood handles on kitchen knives has always offered variation in color. The wood could be light, dark, black, or rose colored. Today, Im happy to see popular brands offering handles in red, blue, yellow, green, and white, says Mr. Jala. This addition can liven up a kitchen without sacrificing quality or safety.

The 2nd cutlery trend Mr. Jala cites is an increase in machined blades. Once there were only forged or stamped blades. Today with modern manufacturing processes and economic pressures, many cutlery manufacturers are adding forged cutlery techniques to stamped blades. This increase in quality yields a whole new category of kitchen knives called machined knives. Ice hardening, bolsters, and laser edge treatments make stamped blades light, sharp, and of high durability.

Mr. Jala says the 3rd cutlery trend for 2012 is an increase in unique handle designs. Take a look at Chicago Cutlery, Henckels, or MAC, and youll see very similar blades attached to rather unique handles. For some, the handle is the only difference, Mr. Jala said. When you consider how amazing the Shun Ken Onion knife looks, part of that attraction is the handle. Balancing the tang with wood, steel, or resin in unique patterns, you can see kitchen knife artists have been busy. Its exciting to see and allows home cooks to match a knife to their identity.

The 4th 2012 cutlery trend Mr. Jala finds is an increase in low priced product lines from premium priced manufacturers. Mr. Jala says Henckels has the Henckels International brand as their more consumer oriented brand. Shun has the very popular Pure Komachi 2 set of kitchen knives. Wusthof introduced the SilverPoint product line where a 10-piece knife block set can have a street price under $ 100.00. Messermeister added the inexpensive Four Seasons line. Dexter Russell added the Basics line. All of these are quality products from top tier brands at very affordable prices.

The full article also offers a review of the current product lines from 13 popular brands from Calphalon to Yoshikin. The article can be found here:

Urnaments Introduces ‘Christmas in July’ with their Holiday Edition Urn Ornament

Glen Rock, New Jersey (PRWEB) July 24, 2012

Urnaments LLC has created a special keepsake urn called Christmas Memories for patrons who want to commemorate the memory of their loved ones and pets during the holidays.

“Christmas Memories was actually our very first design,” says Michael Martino, Founder & President of Urnaments LLC. “We had reservations about introducing it separately when Urnaments and Pet Urnaments first launched in May. Our PR people said that it might be assumed as our signature product and misrepresent our brand in a way other than what we intended.”

There is a logic to this. All Urnaments and Pet Urnaments look like traditional holiday ornaments and are specially designed so they can be adorned on a Christmas Tree. If the First Edition Collection of seven very distinct designs were represented by Christmas Memories, the assumption might that the product was solely a “seasonal” one.

This is why Urnaments’ graphic artists at Miles Technologies were instructed to make no more than one design with a holiday theme.

“On our website and brochure we go to great pains to showcase pictures of Urnaments and Pet Urnaments in settings all around the home, or office for that matter,” continued Mr. Martino. “Still, we have a distinct demographic who also love them for the holidays. Our “Christmas In July” campaign is our way of searching out more people who fall within that sales margin.”

Urnaments LLC was founded by Michael C. Martino in 2010. All engineering / prototyping / designing of the Urnament was completed in November, 2011. Urnaments were designed for the growing market of people seeking to commemorate their departed loved ones and pets in a more heart warming and expressive way. By matching their decorative appeal with an eyelet at the top, Urnaments can displayed on a Christmas tree or anywhere else in the home
