SKID – The Wooden Chef Knife is made from 97% wood and 3% high alloyed carbon steel. It is designed by LIGNUM, a team of engineers, designers, computer scientists, and blacksmiths in Germany, specializing in ecologically sustainable product ideas.
Cutting with wood is not a new idea, but how to make it modern and more efficient is a bit of a challenge. Especially making a wood knife that could be used both in professional kitchens as well as in casual home kitchens.
SKID is made 97% wood which is considerably more sustainable than all-steel knives based on the same amount of energy takes to manufacture them. In addition, wood high in tannin is a naturally occurring element in hardwood that kills bacteria and eliminates the need for chemical cleaners. The knives are also sealed with linseed oil to close the pores, maintain the self-cleaning element of the wood, and prevent the growth of germs and bacteria.
The knives come in a range of wood type includes Robinia, Mahogany, Macassar, Ebony, Walnut and finishes. It can also be customized for an even more luxurious experience with irregular wood species.
