Welcome to day three of Small(er) Business Deals Week! You're probably an old pro at this by now, but in case you're new here, we've secured exclusive discounts with some of our favorite brands this week, just for Serious Eats readers. Each day's deals will start at noon Eastern time, and they'll last for 24 hours only. When noon rolls around the following day, we'll have a new set ready for you.

As for what you can expect for the rest of the week, well, that's a secret. But check your inbox, because we may have a few clues in our latest email.

20% Off D'Artagnan With Code SERIOUSEATS20

D'Artagnan has long been one of our preferred sources for specialty meats, from porcelet collar to Moulard duck breasts. Need a really good strip steak to practice your butter-basting technique on? They have that, too. Not to mention a ton of charcuterie—this writer's favorite is the duck saucisson sec.

Now would be a great time to pack your fridge and freezer with whatever meat suits your fancy. Plan for better holiday breakfasts with applewood-smoked bacon, or maybe venture into game territory with venison. With D'Artagnan, it's hard to go wrong!

20% Off Messermeister Avanta Steak Knives (and Free Shipping!) With Code SERIOUSEATS

In August, we tested a dozen steak knives to find the sharpest (in terms of both functionality and attractiveness) on the market. Our favorite knife set, by Messermeister, came out on top for its excellent performance and affordable price. Not only are Messermeister's Avanta knives well constructed, they're very sharp—and one tester from the Serious Eats team even called them "sexy."

Today, they're more affordable than ever at 20% off, and with free shipping, too. Consider them an upgrade from those banged-up steak knives you got in your 20s. Or pick some up now for a thoughtful holiday gift or wedding present in the future. After you've picked up all that meat from the D'Artagnan sale, these knives will be a welcome addition to your household.
