    Florentine kitchen knives

    A designer Tomer Botner .
    The blades have been created with the help of 17 local suppliers, craftsmen and professionals from Tel Aviv's Florentine neighborhood, made from materials sourced from the area. The knives comprise Botner's final project for the Shenkar School of Engineering and Design, imagined as a way to showcase Florentine's place as a thriving hub of Israeli culture.

    Once the wedge is set in the hilt, the handle is then sealed and the knife given an individual number. Form follows function as the colored rings stripe the knife in a playful spectrum. The shape is a bit of a departure from the traditional Western chef's knife, using a highly curved spine and blade for rocking-style chopping.

    The numbering tag is different.

    Very cool. I wonder if that perpendicular piece that's protruding from the ferrule would make a pinch grip uncomfortable though?

    Those knives are wild looking! Any idea what steel is used and where one could purchase?
