Why settle for the ordinary knife design that looks dull and often doesn’t even cut properly when you can have both the premium looks and unbeatable sharpness in one neat kitchen set? With the new Maple Knife Set by the Ottawa-based design agency The Federal, chopping up your meats, fruit and veggies becomes as easy as 123 – and as cool and trendy as can be.

Created as a creative breakaway from the classic kitchen knife design, each piece in the Maple Set allows the wood to overflow from the handle to the blade, thus highlighting the contrast of materials and helping the knife body blend into its surroundings. Each knife in the set comes with four rivets slightly shifted upwards, which creates a unique visual impression of significantly reduced blade size and knife weight.

Functional and handsome, the minimalist set includes two different eight-inch knives, the Chef’s knife and the Butchers knife, each of them handcrafted from a single piece of solid Canadian Maple wood and German X50CRMOV15 stainless steel. The knives in the Maple Set are carefully built to provide optimum weight and best possible balance in handling, and they come packed in a custom fit foam case and a sturdy box for a special additional note of sophistication.

In the box with your maple wood knives, you will also receive an accompanying instruction manual to prevent any maintenance oversights and prolong the lifespan of your new set of sharp kitchen utensils. Due to go into production soon, first Maple Knife Sets should start shipping at the end of January 2015 so grab a pack or two before the supplies run out!
