kitchener / knife set for vision disorder


There are tens of millions of visually impaired people in our world. I designed a kitchen knife set to help visually impaired people to prepare food safety. It is safe, simple, and easy to use. I want to encourage them to try to prepare food by themselves. I hope that they feel more confident in their daily life when visually impaired people can prepare food like normal person. They can better integrate into society when they live independently. The kitchen knife set contains knife, cutting board and finger guard. The knife is made of ceramic. Chopping board and finger guard is made of soft and hard plastic. The whole set is very light.
