Nesting Knives — Episode 2: Fibonacci in the kitchen space

91YZilt3z1L._SL1500_

I thought they looked familiar when I espied them last night in Wired's December 2012 issue wherein was written,

51Dd5bGMutL._SL1000_

"For chefs with a head for math, these four knives — paring, utility, chef, and fillet — nest together in a design based on the Fibonacci sequence, starting with the width of the average human hand. The set won the European Cutlery Design Award."

Sure enough, turns out I featured them on July 16, 2010.

Lord save us from artists playing with tools!

This is very pretty, but function has been grossly compromised.

If they feel/handle as well as they look,

truly fusional awesomeness.
