We’re gonna need a bigger kitchen… The Jaws Knife Sharpener has taken residence around your kitchen island, but he’s here to help. Simply slide your knife through Jaws’ mouth, and you could have cutlery as sharp as the teeth from an animal that is known for such things. Available here.
If you don’t know a colander from a cookie sheet, or what a box grater is for… Then first, step away from the kitchen. Second, grab a copy of The Cartography of Kitchenware by Pop Chart Lab, and hang it on your wall, pronto.
The 24″ x 36″ poster is beautifully printed on 100lb archival recycled stock, and is “the world’s most thorough mapping of kitchenware” which includes over 200 tools, machines, and manipulators. Now, get back in there and put that spatula and meat tenderizer to good use.

Bread knives can be pretty boring. They sit in our knife blocks, making only the occasional appearance on bagel day. But with the bread knife’s serrated edge comes great opportunity for creativity. Enter, Swiss-based PanoramaKnife and their line of bread knives that are shaped like the Alps.
Mountain enthusiasts may even recognize the more well-known highlights of the Alps, at least by name. Included is a Zurich Panorama, the Lake of Constance Panorama, and the Berner Alps Panorama. Please use extreme caution when cutting your bagel — these Alps will cut ya.

Just when the utensil mash-ups appeared to have reached their apex, we get The Kung Foon. An East meets West fusion of cutlery, The Kung Foon combines the food-stabbing and scooping features of a spork with the clenching features of chopsticks.
So if you ever go camping and need to keep it real when you eat your sushi in the woods, or simply enjoy a plethora of eating options on take-out night — consider the titanium spork with accompanying chopstick handle. Kung Foon!!
