Bespoke Post is a men’s lifestyle subscription box offering sophisticated accessories, gear, and curated interest kits, although nearly all of their offerings are unisex and would be equally appropriate for any woman with a rugged and adventurous side.

The monthly, limited-edition boxes are built around a central, unique theme, and there are usually two or three new boxes to choose from every month. You can also skip the month if you’re not interested in any of the available boxes.

Everything was packed carefully and arrived in good condition.

Each box includes a card that announces the theme. This box is called AL FORNO.

DEAL: For a limited time, use code HELLO20 to save 20% on your first box!

The back of the intro card has a brief description of each item, explaining why it is such an awesome choice for this curation. Most boxes have a small selection of items — usually one main item and some accessories.

After removing the card, you can see the brown paper and the items in bubble wrap.

They also gave us a promo card with a code.

Everything inside my box!

Lamson Walnut Handle Bench Scraper ($18.38) Dough can be thick and hard to work on, so this scraper is really a handy kitchen tool. It is ideal for lifting, turning, cutting, and portioning. If you are not baking, you can also use it to chop soft greens or salad and clean work surface. I found it really useful as a cheese cutter for firm cheese.

It is made with hardened and tempered high-carbon stainless steel plus walnut handles that are durable. It has half-tang construction (really closer to 7/8 tang) secured with brass rivets. Not recommended for the dishwasher, but has a lifetime warranty.

Pizzacraft Oil Infuser Bottle ($6.99) This container allows us to create and store custom blends. Even with straight EVOO, it’s handy for dispensing oil while cooking or for table side dressing.

After half-filling with olive oil, we can add spices such as basil, rosemary, or garlic. It’s recommended to add whole/larger sizes because smaller ones can clog up the spigot.

Be sure to press the lid tight on the brim and let your oil concoction steep. This is top-rack dispenser safe.

It is made up of a glass container and silicone lid with a dual spigot to control the flow of oil. The bottle holds 350ml capacity or 11.84 ounces of liquid.

One spigot has a bigger diameter than the other to pour on a generous amount of oil.

The other spigot which is visibly smaller is preferred when a little amount is required or the food needs a sprinkle or drizzled amount.

Lamson Walnut Handle Offset Bread Knife ($125) A serrated edged offset bread knife that has signature craftsmanship and durable design.

The blade is meticulously handmade in the USA and undergone polishing and sharpening processes.

It has the ideal balance and weight because of the full tang blades with triple riveted handles. It also has a thumb support for control and safety.

The serrated blades are forged from high-carbon steel using a traditional hot-drop method that makes it corrosion resistant and highly elastic.

The offset handle prevents the knuckles from hitting the cutting surface. Intended to be hand wash only.

At our place, we seize upon any excuse to put together a cheese plate! Knives are one of my favorite tools to receive, and this one demanded a trial on some fresh ciabatta baguette. The knife was easy to use, and we were able to slice the bread smoothly without crumbling or tearing it. It is well-balanced and fits comfortably in hand. I really like the offset. I liked using the dough scraper as a cheese cutter, too! It fit securely in hand and was solid enough to slice through the cheese with ease. This trio of firm cheeses actually forced the permanent retirement of a decorative spreader I had tried using, but the cutter had no issues!

I’m really pleased with the AL FORNO box. Though I’ve gotten recent upgrades to most of my knives, I’ve been using the same cheap bread knife for years. Now, my bread knife is the cream of my collection! I love the practicality of Bespoke Post curations — unlike consumables or decorative items that are quickly forgotten, this trio of items will bring me joy for years to come, and I’ll use one of them nearly every day. AL FORNO means “from the oven,” and this set of items makes me want to bake up some fresh bread! Also, it’s just awesome getting $150 worth of products from a $45 subscription!
