FDRL, an Ottawa-based design consultancy. Their Maple Set knives are made predominantly from maple wood, with a dimunitive sliver of metal for the blade. Great design!
"With this project we wanted to explore an alternative emotion to the standard kitchen knives you see every day. The focus is drawn to the high polished blade, while the rest of the knife's Maple wood body sits warmly in the hand and blends in to its surroundings. The wood is sealed and food safe to allow for easy cleanup. The knife gives the appearance of being lightweight; however their weight is balanced to ensure that they can be used by any level of chef."
