Stance / Stance


"Stance" is a collection of knives that was made to restructure and redefine the way we think about knives in general. With its ability to stand on surfaces like tables or desks, a "Stance"-knife demands a completely new way of interacting behaviours. Not only is it a new experience during meals, it also provides certain advantages such as the prevention of a dirty surface underneath the blade.
"Stance" is based on the concept of ceramic blades. The glazed porcelain body ensures a natural feeling in your hands and offers an impermeable and hygienic surface.
"Stance" stands for new attitude in both a mental and physical way.
