Mark Wilson's Steel Blades are Cut into Shape Using Water

Mark Wilson is the New Zealand designer behind the unconventionally shaped composite steel blade that is cut using powerful jet streams of water to create an uneven edge. The knife is shaped using a computer numerically controlled (CNC) set of jets that carve out the blade into an irregular design due to the varied pressure in the water. This results the knife's edge having a varying length and indentation.

While most knife designs aim for consistency and precision, Wilson's design is entirely different with its asymmetrical edge. The utensil is made out of high quality steel with a modular handle and angular blade. The edge varies in shape as it tapers off into a point so it can be used for slicing and cutting.
