Messermeister's pumpkin carving set is $7 shipped (Update: Sold out)

Carve pumpkins with this sturdy three-piece set from the high-end German blade makers.


Call me basic, but one of the most fun parties my friends and I throw is a pumpkin carving soiree: some good food, fall beers and jack-o'-lanterns carved with varying levels of skill (I'm mostly there for the pumpkin ale). And if you're planning to turn a few gourds into gorgeous works of art this season, grab a high-quality Messermeister 3-piece pumpkin carving kit for just $7 (normally $30) plus free shipping at Pottery Barn. 

Warning: It arrives dangerously close to Halloween (the earliest date is Oct. 26) but this is a high-quality set that you'll thank yourself for snagging on sale when next year rolls around.

The carving normally retails for $30 or more and is crafted by German blade experts Messermeister, so it should hold up against some serious torque. It comes with a pumpkin scraper for getting the guts out, a 3.5-inch sawtooth carver for cutting out patterns and edges and a long, thin semi-flexible blade for meticulously finishing decorations and details.
