Canadian design house The Federal have caught our eye with these beautiful wooden kitchen knives. Developed as a concept, the knives feature a treated Maple wood body and slimline blade – making them seem softer and more gentle than your traditional kitchen knife. Here’s what the team at Federal had to say about them:
“With this project we wanted to explore an alternative emotion to the standard kitchen knives you see every day. The focus is drawn to the high polished blade, while the rest of the knife’s Maple wood body sits warmly in the hand and blends in to its surroundings.”
If you’re like us, you might be worrying about the balance of a wooden knife compared to it’s steel counterpart – to this Federal assures us “The knife gives the appearance of being lightweight; however their weight is balanced to ensure that they can be used by any level of chef.”
We’re sold, these look amazing.
