About this project
Artfully Cutting Experience
Many chefs and restaurant owners will tell you that presentation of food is just as important as the taste of the food. They will also advice you that having the right tools in the kitchen is essential for achieving the best results.
These two facts combined have led to the development of a unique knife and cutting board solution that allows for easy cutting, chopping, slicing, dicing, and even peeling of delicious food such as cheeses, fruit, vegetables, breads, meats, and more while presenting them in an appealing manner.
The walnut with which the cutting board has been carved is of the finest grain, selected for its durability and for the splendor that it brings to Spéciale while a built-in hand-made Damascus knife with rosewood handle that moves around on the board made of an historical metal with a wavy surface pattern, hammered out with steel and iron and first used in present-day Syria during the medieval age.
Your next dinner event will be a cinch. We know that there are hosts and hostesses all around the world just waiting to get something like this into their homes.
For years the hunt for the right knife and cutting board have had us wondering about that perfect blade that would work its way through all types of food items perfectly. The knife had to be sharp and unique and the cutting board had to be durable. Because of these principles, we chose damascus knife and walnut wood for the cutting board.
And after a long period of trial and testings, we finally developed the perfect cutting board which will ease your kitchen struggles and hone your cutting skills, taking them to the next level.
Removable Built-in Brass Pin
Our Damascus Knife can spin around the board and make cutting easier, it does not just work its way up and down but right and left as well. We've spent a lot of hours finding a way to attach our custom knife on our walnut cutting board that spins it around. We finally developed a built-in brass pin. We made the brass pin removable so when any of the parts need to be cleaned, including knife and pin, will be able to disassemble. The whole system is incredibly intuitive, the knife swiveling along the surface of the cutting board in order to reach any food item that you place on it. The idea is to give value to good quality food and having it with enjoyment.
Spéciale cutting board knife is shaped into its form with our own design on Damascus steel and carbon reputed to be tough , resistant to shattering and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge.
Hence, taking advantage of our history lessons, we got our hands on Damascus steel and moulded it into your most perfect kitchen experience "Spéciale". In addition, we have also had a beautifully patterned and elegant cutting board made to compliment the grace of our Damascus knife.
Details & Specs
We use the selected rosewood for the Spéciale knives' handles. Beautifully patterned and stamped Rosewood perfectly embodies this idea with exquisite looks, top notch performance. Our traditional rosewood handle is designed to provide maximum comfort and wonderful feel to touch with extra durability.
Walnut Cutting Board:
Handsome walnut cutting board is designed to be both beautiful and functional. Our design and material source ables to protect the damascus knife and our board, also provide stability during use and look handsome to keep out on the counter. The reason we picked walnut as our cutting board is this hardwood is so gentle on our knives yet very durable and also it has very beautiful natural grain patterns.
Spéciale 17inches long Damascus knife can be used separately from the board. Hang the knife on the hook and enjoy the beauty of it!
Traditional Retail Markups
Traditional retail markups are so high, therefore the Damascus knives and walnut cutting boards cost so much at retail shops. We set our Kickstarter goal at $25K, so we will be able to reach the minimum quantity requirement to customize our own steel and set up a manufacturing line for our unique hand-made knife. Also, with our goal, we will be able to pick the beautifully grained walnut wood for producing our custom cutting boards. With your support, we are able to bring Spéciale directly to you while avoiding high cost retail markups.
Design: Beauty & Function
Knife and cutting board that is the stuff of legends.
Spéciale brings sophistication and ambiance together which will amaze friends and bring something special to any meal. Each solid walnut board will be unique with its natural grain giving it an element of class and beauty.
Let’s start a knife and cutting board revolution!
Why we need your help
We need to raise $25,000 to bring Spéciale to life. The fundings will go towards sourcing patterned walnut wood and first production run for our custom designed handmade damascus knives.
After spending more than a year on designing, prototyping and manufacturing the samples, we are ready to go into production. Our manufacturing wooden products experience and tight connections with our damascus blade producers, we are confident that with your help, we can successfully stay on our production timeline and provide you with the best Spéciale cutting board with built-in Damascus Knife.
Risks and challenges
We have already spent countless hours on developing and prototyping Spéciale and we are now ready for the production stage. Our dark patterned walnut wood and damascus steel are in place. Once we reach our goal, we will start manufacturing the parts for assembling Spéciale cutting board. Even though Spéciale's some parts are hand-made as damascus knife, our manufacturing partners have years of experience so we will able to complete manufacturing right on time. Each walnut board has its unique natural grains and knives are made by hand therefore all the knives will have different waves. Our main goal is to produce the best cutting board in the market with the best quality and shipping the rewards on time. We already discussed with our manufacturing partners about the shipping time and we don't see any further challenges. We will update our backers with every step that we pass through so we will able to inform them about our processing at the mean time. There will be no exchanges or returns.Our prices do not include VAT, GST, import duties/charges or other country taxes/fees.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
