When the stylish need a Louis Vuitton fix, they head to this gleaming, jewel box Downtown Seattle store, known for its friendly, helpful salespeople and its eye-catching selection. With women’s luxury shoes, wallets, purses, iPhone and iPad cases, plus carry-on luggage and men’s shoes and bags in the latest Vuitton colors, it’s easy to see why the iconic LV logo has become so ubiquitous. With superior build quality and long-lasting looks, many of Louis Vuitton’s handbags and luggage accessories are meant to last a lifetime, if treated well. Wise shoppers let the salesperson know just what they have in mind, and the glittery store can even provide hot stamping on site, to personalize purchases with their own initials.
Although most chefs have their own unique style of peeling, dicing, and julienning veggies, they all have one thing in common: they each require precise, sharp knives. At Excalibur Cutlery and Gifts, the staff ensures that tools remain as close to their factory condition as possible. During sharpening services, a water-cooled belt system and buffing wheels restore a piercing blade while removing a minimal amount of steel. They can sharpen kitchen, pocket, and hunting knives, as well as dull scissors and razors.
The shop also stocks premium models of nearly every edge they sharpen. The cutlery department stocks German-made Wusthof and Henckels, Swiss-made Forschner, and Oregon-grown Kershaw knives. Ideal for camping trips, pocket knives come in both blade and multitool varieties. More genteel wares include manicure sets and old-fashioned shaving kits. Excalibur also boasts a collection of swords for the collector or CEO whose business suit needs extra panache.
