The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the service industry has been unprecedented. With the closure of businesses, both permanent and temporary, there are countless service professionals who are currently out of work and left worried about their future.
In an effort to help support the industry who has always been so supportive of us, we are raffling off an amazing knife with all proceeds going to the Service Workers Coalition.
The knife we are raffling off is a 21 cm (8 inch) Nickel Warikomi Damascus gyuto. This chef’s knife is 45 layers of stainless steel with an AUS10 core and is one of the thinnest and most nimble knives you’ll ever use. To sweeten the deal, this knife features an amazing custom handle by Grimm Knife Co. The handle is made with a red mallee burl-acrylic hybrid, acrylic, vulcanized paper, and a chef’s knife charm.
Our NWD 21cm Gyuto retails for $300 and with this amazing Grimm Knife Co. handle, it is once in a lifetime Kikuichi knife. All it takes is one raffle ticket to win it!

We are a grassroots mutual aid organization mobilizing to respond to the evolving needs of service workers in Brooklyn. As the COVID19 crisis punctuates the lack of safety net and available resources provided to restaurant workers; back and front of the house; undocumented and documented. We are committed to helping as many people possible. We are doing everything in our power to keep our volunteers and quarantined people safe. We are currently offering $50 per week stipends for groceries and over the counter medications, delivery of necessary supplies for quarantined people, as well as facilitating harm reduced supply access, and coordinating wellness checks and mental health services remotely.
