SAN FRANCISCO–Sharper Image has signed a multiyear licensing agreement with ARG Manufacturing to prepare a line of kitchen tools and utensils, bakeware and barbecue tools. Specific items will include spatulas, spoons, ladles, whisks, slicers and peelers. Other items will include salad spinners, pizza cutters, ice cream scoops and mandoline slicers.
The first products are slated for market next fall.
Earlier this month, Sharper Image’s stock was delisted from Nasdaq, following the specialty retailer’s filing in February for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and debtor-in-possession financing. Prior to the filling, the retailer shuffled its top executive ranks, with Robert Conway succeeding Steven Lightman as chief executive officer.
