GASAE / Table Scissors Set

GASAE
GASAE

Kitchen scissors occupy an unusually prominent position within Korean cuisine culture. They are used extensively both at home and in restaurants for preparing and serving dishes. Kitchen Scissors are an incongruous presence at the contemporary Korean dining table that make no concession to a sense of refined dining etiquette. This product is to re-examine kitchen scissors with a view to delivering utensils that demonstrate more sympathetic disposition towards Korean culture, described by the Korean word Gasae. It is hoped that a more sophisticated dining setting is established for Koreans at home, and a more acceptable one for markets abroad.
