It’s sort of ironic how the precision knife is so commonly used by designers yet so lacking in design evolution. Who hasn’t lost the cap? Or had the knife go rolling across the table like a razor on the run?! Or lost your grip on the smooth metal? Well… designer Marion Lenne decided to do something about it and the result is PK.01 – a knife for designers by a designer!
It’s actually a knife and ruler combo and it combines surgical steel with natural cork. The tactile cork provides greater grip and is faceted to prevent rolling. Unlike a loose cap, the cork also slides down to protect the blade. It’s a simple integration that doesn’t look half bad either!
