Razor sharp knives that fit snugly in their wallet
Because we go on lots of photo shoots to prepare and cook the food for the pictures in the magazine, we need knives that are razor sharp and easy to carry around. Our Naifu set has all the sizes of blades I need and fits snugly in its wallet. It's just the thing an on-the-go food stylist needs.

Must have...Chef's knives
You don't appreciate just what a pleasure a top-of-the range cook's knife is until you use one. The Japanese Naifu range of beautifully weighted Damascus steel knives are a joy in the hand and keen as a razor - mine arrived two months ago and still no need to sharpen them. The chef Tom Aikens is a fan: "They allow you to cut with absolute precision," he says.

Mike Schneideman, founder of Divertimenti, has launched a brilliant online knife store, lauded by chefs such as Tom Aikens. Not only are they tough enough to withstand a professional kitchen, but they're a bargain to boot. Order the Milano five piece knife set (£157) and you'll get a magnetic knife rack (£19.50) and a sharpener (£21.50) absolutely free. (chefsknifestore.co.uk)

A wooden spoon may be the single most useful piece of kitchen equipment, but sharp knives come a close second. The Naifu knives deveoped by Michael Scheideman, founder of the Divertimenti kitchen shops, have found favour with top chefs such as Rowley Leigh and Tom Aikens, but are so well designed they are ideal for non-professionals, too. The D67 range is aimed especially at domestic cooks, a paring knives costs £19.50, a 20cm chef's knife costs £74, and the eight-knife set costs £278. 020 8960 1020, www.chefsknifestore.co.uk
