I feel fairly confident in stating that there is not a single human on this planet who revels in feeding from metal chopsticks. I like to think of myself as proficient in prongs — but the futility of pursuing the last piece of Chicken Teriyaki around a plate with metal choppers is one of life’s cruelest jokes. This is not the way of honour.

Fortunately, Tokyo architecture duo, Atelier Bow-Wow, chose to use their talents in metalwork to forge fork, knife and spoon — not chopsticks. Their iD/cutlery set for Royal VKB tips hat to the wilds:

"We thought back to more primitive times and imagined the dining table as a landscape where nature prevails". 

Nature prevailing — that’s a tick from us. 

End cruelty to chicken —
