Meeting Knives Set Is The Deadliest Puzzle I’ve Ever Seen

Meeting Knives (Images courtesy Mia Schmallenbach)
By Andrew Liszewski

While it might look like a brain-bending puzzle, Mia Schmallenbach’s Meeting Knives set actually features a brilliant design allowing four different kitchen knives: a paring knife, a carving knife, a chef’s knife and a filleting knife to all stack inside each other on a single block of steel. The proportions of each knife were apparently determined by the Fibonacci sequence, a term I haven’t heard since my high school computer science classes, but the results are far from looking like they were designed by a mathematician.

And thankfully, this is one of those times when a cool looking product is actually available for sale. The Meeting Knives set is produced by Deglon out of France, and I managed to find an Australian website called Table Direct that is selling the set for about $920. I’ve also found a slightly more affordable version that comes with a wooden base instead, available from Chef Studio Boutique for about $483.

    No professional chef uses metal blades anymore. They use ceramic knives that never need sharpeing nor do they rust… These are nice and all but if they were ever used daily they'd never be kept as they are displayed. For a 1000 bucks, seems more like a fashionista itrem and less like a kitchen item…

    Plenty of professional chef use metal blades, Justin. If they are quality knifes,the $483 isn't too bad, but yes, these are very pricey. There is something to say for the beauty and ingenuity of it though.
