40 Cutting Edge Cutlery Designs

— February 14, 2009 — Art & Design
Sometimes the standard fork, knife, spoon, and pair of chopsticks just won't do and a set of cutting-edge cutlery is called for. These innovative designs will shake up the way you eat in both their form and function.

From heat-sensitive spoons to sauce-dispensing chopsticks, there are a ton of utensils armed with advanced features not found in your standard boxed set. And with incredible cutlery designs that biodegrade, float, can be worn on your fingers or atop your pen, nest within each other, and are perfectly made to fling food farther, it's a wonder you're still using plain old flatware.
