About

Any chef will tell that presentation of food is equally as important as the taste. The eyes will always taste the food before the mouth even gets a chance. Likewise, having the correct tools in the kitchen to help with food preparation and presentation is also a prerequisite of producing and serving good food. 

Understanding these two important components of making and serving good food has resulted in the development of a smart, good-looking and innovative tool. A cleverly thought through and designed tool that makes cutting, chopping, slicing and dicing easy and creative more while presenting them in an appealing manner. Cheese, fruit, vegetables, bread, meats and more can now be prepared or served more conveniently and more stylishly than ever before. Even the device itself looks amazing, and this makes things even better all round.  Your next dinner event will be a cinch.. 

Spéciale brings sophistication and ambiance together which will amaze friends and bring something special to any meal. 

We can't wait to see your creativity with Speciale Built-in Knife
We can't wait to see your creativity with Speciale Built-in Knife

Japanese steel is known to be among the finest steels in the world. It is the retention of the sharp edge that gives the Speciale is the ability to cut anything it needs to. The blade cutting angle is 15 degree on each side on the knife. (V Style Blade) The blade is 17.5 cm long and is 2.5mm in thickness.  The length, thickness and weight of the knife were carefully developed to ensure optimal performance and ease of use. 

Complete Set comes with everything you need to install it on your cutting board

Over the years we have developed and experimented with a number of knives and this knife is our best yet. Adding further elegance to the blade a pattern has been hammered into the blade making it a highly appealing and decorative addition to any dining table. 

We reached to the unique frosted patterns by applying Bead blast Finish on the blade and the right below the frosted pattern, we applied the mirror finish that makes the blade even more unique.   

Made from Japanese steel, the knife retains its sharpness. The bead blast finish ensures the knife will retain its uniqueness and brilliance, even after being washed, for many years and thus the Speciale remains an elegant looking piece of equipment. The hand hammered blade is produced as such to prevent food from sticking to the knife edge making the knife and swivel excellent for one-handed use.

The knife overall is strong durable and easy to clean.  The knife can be used stand-alone or in the brass swivel. Any chef or avid home cook will find the knife makes the perfect addition to the kitchen and it will soon become the preferred blade overall.

Easy to clean, durable and elegant the knife will look good even as dining table décor. The elegance of the Speciale is something that will impress anyone.

Like good food begins with the best ingredients so good tools begin with the best materials. Spéciale is an elegant and creative built-in knife that’s built with a combination of artisan craftsmanship, supreme quality materials, and aesthetic beauty. Good looks were a priority in designing the Speciale in order to uplift the presentation of food when used at the dining room table. And after a long period of trial and testings, we finally developed the perfect built-in knife which will ease your kitchen struggles and hone your cutting skills, taking them to the next level.  Now, you can use your creativity to attach Spéciale kit on any cutting board!

The elegance and durability of the design continue with the cutting knife used as the centerpiece of the tool. Made from fine Japanese steel the knife is strong, sharp and unique looking. Blade’s high hardness range and supreme sharpness make this steel ideal for cutting most of the hard and soft food items with ease. 

Speciale knife has a solid wood handle with a choice of Pakka wood(darker handle) or Olive wood (lighter handle), and the blade has a hand-hammered surface with an elegant wavy surface pattern. 

We use the selected beautiful handles for the Spéciale knives’ handles. Beautifully patterned pakka and olive wood handles are perfectly embodies this idea with exquisite looks, top notchperformance. Our traditional both style handles are designed to provide maximum comfort and wonderful feel to touch with extra durability. 

The handle on the extremely sharp and strong knife is handmade from a choice of either Pakka Wood  and Olive wood to provide a choice of dark or light finishes while retaining durability. The handle has been crafted to fit the hand well and comfortably and also so that it can be easily gripped even by the elderly or one handed cooks. Spéciale is great for right and left handed chefs. 

 The idea is to give value to good quality food and having it with enjoyment. 

Bringing quality and good looks together is a vital element in the production of this culinary masterpiece making it not only a practical kitchen tool but also something that will look impressive at any dining experience.

Speciale is hammered individually by hand to a beautiful finish that reduces drag when cutting and preventing food from sticking to the blade. The Speciale is a fully ambidextrous tool that is perfect for both left and right-handed people. At first, the Speciale will seem like a novelty. However, the versatility and practicality will soon shine through with everyone wanting one for their own home.  This superbly practical cutting board and knife combination is something everyone will wish to have for showing their friends; it makes a great gift to give anyone who loves cooking or enjoys entertaining. 

The solution makes the perfect gift for any cook or entertainer that appreciates that the presentation of good food is as important as the taste of the food.

The centerpiece of the Speciale is the impressive built-in Knife that is both good looking and practical. The knife can be used as a kitchen knife or on the swivel.  When the knife is unattached from the brass pin, then now you can enjoy using it as a Nakiri vegetable knife! And Hang the knife on the hook and enjoy the beauty of it! 

Stylish, practical and easy to assemble, disassemble and use make the Speciale perfect for any home kitchen.  

All over the world chefs, homemakers and anyone who prepares or serves food have been hunting for the right knife and the perfect chopping board but struggled to find the best of both together. 

For years the hunt for the right knife 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, unique and durable. Because of these principles, we chose Japanese knife and brass alloy for the plot pin.  

Finding the perfect blade for all types of food from soft to hard has primarily been the challenge. All chefs and cooks have a selection of knives that they know cut or chop different ingredients better than another. However, the Speciale has solved that with the super sharp blade and high-quality steel to produce a knife that has been proven to cut anything and everything a chef or cook would need slicing, dicing or chopping.

Adding versatility and function

After a long period of trial and testings, we finally developed the perfect built-in knife solution which will ease your kitchen struggles and hone your cutting skills, taking them to the next level. 

 After more than three years of designing, prototyping, testing, and manufacturing samples we’re ready to go to production.

Our 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 a cutting board that spins it around.

To add versatility and practicality, innovation was needed for this knife and a removable rotating brass pin to which the knife can be attached. Many hours of thinking and prototyping went into the development of this unique feature with this knife and cutting board combination solution. We finally developed an easily attachable 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 disassembled. When you want to sharpen your knife after using it for a long time, you can always adjust the pin according to the right level of your knife. 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. Want to use Spéciale as a Nakiri knife? go for it! Remove the knife from the brass pin and use it freely with any cutting motion. 

The Speciale is presented and shipped in an elegant wooden box with everything you need to create your own built-in cutting board. All you need is the creativity to find your own cutting board to attach Speciale brass pin and the knife. 

Spéciale kit comes with a brass pin, knife, screws and screw driver.

Durability and stylish design had to be equally included. The result was a brass swivel that does not rust that is easily attached and removed with just two brass screws – the solution includes a crafted screwdriver to compliment the entire design.

The knife rise and fall at the correct heights and distances from the swivel to ensure easy cutting of all sizes of food items. Our final prototyping ensured this was achieved Spéciale can cut anything from an olive to a pineapple to perfection without changing knives all on one board. 

When we launched our first campaign on Kickstarter, our main idea was just an artfully cutting and serving experience with Speciale and we had no idea how this built-in knife combination would help people who have difficulties on cutting food items. During and after our campaign, we have received dozens of "thank you "messages from those people and their friends/relatives that we just solved a huge problem for them. That made us really happy and we worked very hard since our last campaign to make Speciale even more affordable for everyone and allowing the system to be installed on any cutting board possible. People will enjoy using their creativity to find the right cutting board for them and mount their Speciale units. This will be a great option for the people who can only operate their one hand or have unsteady hands and their loved ones can create the best cutting board for them. As seen as in our campaign video(apple scene), we hammered a few nails on a cutting board and installed our Speciale built-in knife then inserted an apple on the nails so when cutting, the apple won't move around.

This will be a very useful product for the disabled or elderly and as well as for those who suffer from a weak or restricted grip.

The innovative 360-degree swivel is made from brass and with the attached knife it can be fitted to any chopping board. This clever little device helps people who are challenged when it comes to chopping and cutting food and those with one hand, those suffering from Parkinson’s disease or just those with an unsteady hand will find Spéciale very useful. Fitted to the cutting board with just two screws the swivel is easy to assemble and take apart. It suited for both left and right-handed people but more importantly makes cutting, slicing, dicing and chopping easy and safe for those who have challenges.

Setting our crowdfunding goal at $15,000 we can produce the minimum quantity required to produce our unique and exclusively one of a kind built-in Speciale knife kit. The fundings will go towards machining brass pins and production run for our custom designed hand-hammered Japanese knives. Using the highest quality materials, the Speciale will become a sort after food preparation and presentation solution in demand by many households. And with your support, the Speciale can be delivered directly to your door or delivered as a gift to those you know will love the solution. By shipping Speciale directly to you, and not exploring traditional retail methods we are able to provide our premium quality Speciale sets at as low a price as possible.

After spending more than three years on designing, prototyping and manufacturing the samples, we are ready to go into production. we are confident that with your help, we can successfully stay on our production timeline and provide you with the best and only Spéciale built-in knife.

Risks and challenges

This is our second campaign on Kickstarter after delivering the best quality knives with unique features on our first campaign. We've learned a lot from our first campaign such as finding the right raw materials for manufacturing, fulfilling the large quantities in a limited time and worldwide shipping processing, We've already been working on our patent-pending project over 3 years now and we are very confident that we can complete manufacturing on time with the best quality. We already discussed with our manufacturing partners about the manufacturing time and we don't see any further challenges. We will be working with a very professional fulfilment center so order are expected be to delivered right on time. We will update our backers with every step that we pass through with manufacturing pictures/media.
