An inspired mixture of Eastern and Western design, these economical kitchen knives look fantastic. The minimalist design was influenced by Japanese art of wood crafting and really reflects Japanese culture. The ergonomical design is thorough and suits the product’s purpose perfectly; it’s ergonomic handle is slip-resistant and ultra-comfortable to allow the user to cut the food properly. Another feature i find great and inspiring of this product is its packaging. The knives are placed in traditional Japanese “kiribako” boxes which creates the sense of presenting the knife to the customer and acts as a safety feature to prevent anyone touching the blade. This is inspiring for my current project as the product’s packaging really displays it attractively.
