These beautiful Fusion Wooden Kitchen Knives are truly universal culinary implements, taking inspiration from the typical tools that you'll find for food preparation in the East and in the West. Drawing the magnificent materiality from the former and the form from the latter, designer Andrea Ponti delivers this collection of four expertly crafted slicers.

The talented Issei Hanaoka of Japan cuts, carves and sands the large and small blades from white maple and ebony wood. Their serrated and non-serrated edges are surprisingly honed and quite easy to sharpen again and again. The elegant sculptural shapes of the Fusion Wooden Kitchen Knives broaden into gorgeous grippable handles that enable you to use them gracefully for preparing loaves of bread and morsels of cheese.
