Day three of GSN’s holiday gift guide features a new bar knife. Every bartender can use one of these!
A collaboration between New York barware superstore Cocktail Kingdom
and award-winning Los Angeles bartender Aaron Polsky, the Ikura Knife is the ultimate bar tool. The elegant knife features a razor-sharp six-inch forged-steel blade that’s long enough to cut a grapefruit but thin enough for carving ice balls or diamonds, with an angled point at the end for fine garnish work.

Polsky is a bartending expert: He’s been working in hospitality since he was 18 and got his start in New York under famed barman Sasha Petraske.
