The Skalpel Steak Knife

Feb 20, 2018

Ask any chef and they’ll tell you a knife is their most important tool. But knives are extremely important on the other side of the plate, too – especially when the meal is steak. If you’re like us and you obsess over every bite, then you’re going to love the Skalpel steak knife.

Ergonomically sculpted from a single piece of stainless steel, these perfectly balanced handmade knives were (obviously) inspired by a surgeon’s scalpel. And yes, the dread-fascination element of using a cutting tool that looks like it came out of a hospital to cut your food was well considered. In fact, it was embraced by Stuart Mitchell, the knife’s creator, as a surefire conversation starter at any meal. But it isn’t just a gimmick, either, as Mitchell’s talents as a knife maker stretch back 30 years. So whether you’re looking for unique utensils or you truly expect a surgeon’s precision out of any cut, you’ll be pleased with the Skalpel – which goes live on Kickstarter on the 19th of this month.
