Whether its chopping up a bunch of fresh herbs or carefully slicing a thin ribbon of prosciutto, ask any home chef, a good knife makes all the difference. Leave it to Canadian design group The Federal to put together an innovative look for this everyday tool. Owners Ian Murchison and Rohan Thakar are always busy pumping out creative and beautiful ideas. One of their recent developments is the classy Maple Set. The gorgeous blade appears perfectly clean in a natural setting adding an organic feel into your kitchen cutlery that’s pretty enough for display. When held in the palm of your hand its weight is precisely measured, for excellent performance.
