The “Chop”: Designer’s Chef’s Knife
Half handle-half knife
Chop, designed by italy’s lucidipevere Studio and produced in Copenhagen, is both functional and design worthy, with more emphasis on design.
Chop consist of a stainless-steel blade that comes in its own protective rubber coated sheath half of which is removed to expose the blade leaving the other half as a handle. Its round configuration lets you roll the blade back and forth on the chopping surface while gripping the round rubber handle. When not in use the rubber coated sheath is replaced back over the blade so that it becomes a safe round wheel.
Functionally the Chop is no substitute for a conventional Chef’s knife or any other kitchen knife for that matter but it is clever looking, safe, and most likely gets the job done.
The stainless-steel blade is stamped, meaning that it is cut from one sheet of metal. If the stainless-steel is of a high quality there’s no reason why The Chop wouldn’t last as long as any other stamped chopping knife. Figuring out how to sharpen it is another story. The Chop in a selection of four different colors and is dishwasher safe. $43; normann-copenhagen.com
