These Chen and Kai Williams Knives are Crafted from Household Materials

Designed with an urban aesthetic that is starkly realistic, these Chen and Kai Williams knives appear as though they were made by vigilantes in need of a weapon. The art pieces are created using a number of household materials that combine to create a lethal weapon that could easily be used to injure someone, which is why these pieces are best kept safely stowed away in a display cabinet.

The myriad of creations that the design duo have available bring about an air of violence that is both intimidating as well as a little humorous; the pair are essentially parodying what would otherwise be considered disturbingly lethal creations. There are some that utilize the sharp blades of utility cutters, while others are standard items like screws that have been sharpened to become harsh weaponry.
