Best In Market 2017
Additionally, the winner of the “Best in Market” Award was announced. The Cheese Knife by W&P Design, LLC received this coveted recognition during the NY NOW summer 2017 market. The “Best in Market” Award recognizes one extraordinary product that stood out among the ten category winners of the “Best New Product” Awards. This year, the ten category winners from the “Best New Product” Awards were evaluated by Kate Doherty, Market Director of HGTV Magazine, before a winner was selected.
“We’re incredibly honored to receive the Best in Market distinction from NY NOW and HGTV Magazine for The Cheese Knife,” said Josh Williams, Co-Founder, W&P Design, LLC. “It really is the perfect accessory for enjoying cheese and charcuterie at home and we’re so excited to share this with others to enjoy, especially during the holiday season.”
The Cheese Knife is designed to be the only knife needed for your cheeseboard. Crafted from hardwood, brass and brushed stainless steel, the knife is equipped to handle soft to firm chesses. The broad blade allows users to slice and spread soft cheeses, while the sharpened edge cuts cleanly through firm chesses. It also has a pointed edge to break off pieces of hard cheeses.
NY NOW’s comprehensive collections – HOME, LIFESTYLE and HANDMADE – encompass tens of thousands of products from more than 2,400+ premier established and emerging brands. Attendees from all 50 U.S. states and more than 80 countries worldwide are expected. For more information, visit www.nynow.com.
