Maple Set by The Federal is a one gorgeous prototype.
This set of knives are mainly made from carved Maple wood, finished with a highly polished blade. The contrast of the two materials is at odds, yet they also somehow complement each other to create an object that is visually spectacular. But these pieces aren’t just pretty though, they have been weighted correctly so in use they handle and cut in a way that would impress any culinary genius. The wood has been sealed to ensure longevity and avoid staining from use, and to make cleaning easy.
Listed as in prototype status in 2012, here’s hoping they go into full production some time this year.
