Whim: nesting knives

, 3 June 2010

How do you get a paring knife, a carving knife, a chef’s knife and a filleting knife to occupy less space than using any other “design” knife block? Simple! By using the Fibonacci sequence and stacking them all inside each other on a single block of steel…

This set designed by Mia Schmallenbach was awarded the first prize of the Fifth European Award for Cutlery Creation and is edited by Deglon in Thiers (France). You can buy them on the Australian website called Table Direct that is selling the set for about $920. Although you have a more affordable version that comes with a wooden base available from Chef Studio Boutique for about $483.
