On June 8th, 2018, the world lost arguably the greatest culinary journalist of all time, Anthony Bourdain. Now, a collection of personal effects once owned by the author, chef, documentarian, and celebrity is headed to the auction block.

For fans of Bourdain, this auction is loaded to the gills with things that help give a more intimate look into Bourdain’s wonderful and troubled life — including a Michelin trophy, Ralph Steadman original artwork, a collection of records, and his personal bomber jacket. But the most enticing item is undoubtedly a custom steel and meteorite chef knife made by Bob Kramer specifically for his friend, Bourdain. While some of the money will go yo Bourdain’s family, the sales will also benefit the Anthony Bourdain Legacy Scholarship at The Culinary Institute of America — his alma mater. The auction kicks off on October 9th with items expected to sell for between $200-$6,000 each.

Purchase: $200+
