Italian designer Michele Daneluzzo wanted to make a steel knife that, as he explains, analyzes "the intrinsic relationship between mankind and design, proposing to the modern culture a forgotten tool." His process led to the Primitive Knife, which he created for the Italian kitchen design shop Del Ben.
There is no handle or serrated edge in sight, rather this knife is a solid, tear drop-shaped piece of steel that tapers to a slim ridge along one side for a sharp, smooth slicing edge. The shape is inspired by the pieces of flint used as cutting tools in the stone age, emulating the simplicity and ease of those blades.
The Primitive Knife, features a thicker edge allows for a comfortable grip and a modernly ancient way to hold a steel knife.
