Caveman Tools


Tel Aviv-based design studio Ami Drach & Dov Ganchrow launched a range of caveman cutlery at this year’s Budapest Design Week.

The modern stone and flint tools are likely to appeal to aspiring Stone Age chefs and Paleo dieters. The blades are cleverly inserted into custom 3D-printed plastic handles, which encapsulate the rugged forms in perfectly fitting cases, and engraved with the acronyms “BC” and “AD”.

“As product designers, we are fascinated by the prospect of integrating thousand-year-old cutting implements manufactured by knapping [hitting one stone against the other or with the aid of a striking a stick] with the most contemporary cutting-edge design and manufacturing technologies,” Drach and Ganchrow explain.
