Join The–Dots

Sycamore Knives

In this project I wanted to challenge myself to create a design based on a found object.
While having a stroll during last autumn I have noticed a bunch of sycamore pods falling, it is a truly genius natural design that allows trees to deliver it seeds to long distances. I had taken some of them home, to have a closer look. It shape is very pleasing to the eye I like how the lines flow from the seed to the tip of the wing. As it turned out, those pods shape and pattern had been an inspiration to many, and gave me an idea to create this set of knives.The biggest challenge was to emulate the the original but at the same time do make sure that final product would be practical.
Created with high-quality modern materials:
  • - 15n20 carbon steel and 1095 spring steel,
  • - Thermocycled blades, hardened and tempered for highest performance
