A minimalist one piece chef knife inspired by classic metal tools.

Design-driven Danish company VEARK aims to create high-quality utensils for modern kitchens. The brand’s first product showcases VEARK’s preference for meaningful design. Inspired by traditional metal tools, VEARK-CK01 reminds the user that the chef’s knife is the most essential tool in the kitchen. The single piece build complements a minimalist design that explores the concept of “less is more” while infusing the knife with personality. VEARK-CK01 features a single piece of drop forged stainless steel, without any rivets or wooden accents. At the same time, the open handle design mirrors the way professional chefs use kitchen knives. Thanks to the distinctive, metal tool-like shape, the handle allows users to grab the one piece chef knife at the perfect balance point.

The manufacturing process takes place in the renowned knife forging town of Solingen, in Germany. To make the CK01 knife, skilled craftspeople use the traditional drop forging technique. This crucial stage not only ensures the products’ exquisite quality, but gives each knife an individual pattern. While the typical Solingen blade has a hardness of 55-56 Rockwell, CK01 goes higher with 58 Rockwell. Which means that the blade is sharper and also remains that way for longer. Launched on Kickstarter, the VEARK-CK01 one piece chef knife is priced at around $115, with the super-early bird package available at $77. The campaign ends on December 9, 2018.
