SLIDE / chopping knife


The chopping knife «SLIDE», consisting of a double-bladed knife and a protective cover, can be perfectly stored in a standard kitchen drawer. A sideways pull unlocks the knife from its cover, meanwhile the cover transmutes into a handle. Moving this handle simply forwards and backwards effects the knife to cradle. This ergonomic use with only a single hand is based on a slide bearing made of polyamide. There is no need for other mechanical elements. The knife is totally extractable for the purpose of cleaning. Solid materials and a timeless design guarantee product durability in order to reduce the ecological impact.
