While studying architecture, Maker Sean Riley realized the knife he seemed to always have in his hand was causing cramps. He and classmate Cam Chateauneuf created more than 100 prototypes over two years trying to dial in on the perfect balance of form and function before landing on this unique design that felt perfectly balanced.
ErgoKiwi stands out for its eye-catchingly different ergonomic handle, made from bocote hardwood, plywood, or paperstone. Once you hold it in your hand, you’ll feel the difference, too. You can hold it in any position that feels natural and it’ll help avoid strain by preventing hyperextension of the index finger. No tension or straining means you can work more comfortably and focus at the task (literally) at hand. Magnets embedded in the handle hold the blade in place and a latch locks it in. This is especially useful when you’re cutting thicker material. Even handier? The magnetic handle lets you secure the knife to metal surfaces when you’re not using it.
