Mono Tools Fruit Knife Set
Note: This product is no longer available.
Sometimes the simplest and most basic of tools prove themselves the handiest. This "primitive" set includes Citrus Knife and Peeling Knife - an ingenious way to peel and slice fleshy citrus fruits. The ergonomics of this set are truly remarkable. The massive knife handles are slightly angled at approximately 10°, thus optimizing exerted cutting pressure, yet they are pleasing and almost sensuous in its handling. This cutting edge set is offered in a hand-crafted wooden box, making it ideal for gift giving.
Designer Michael Schneider's homage to the primitive shapes of early eating tools is full of pleasant contradictions: simplistic forms cast in beautiful stainless steel; minimal lines with a weighty feel; crude silhouettes shaped with smooth precision. Build your own mono "tools" assortment with this Fruit Knife Set from the collection.
