Butter Knife – Cold butter, spreadable on bread
The fact that the Japanese, of all people, who are said to be intolerant to dairy products, invented this ingenious butter knife is probably thanks to globalization. Sometimes an outsider’s perspective helps to finally find a solution to a problem that has existed for a long time. And this is often surprisingly easy. In the case of the butter knife, the teeth and rows of holes divide the hard, greasy block into pleasantly spreadable butter. That you didn’t think of it much earlier!
Incidentally, the first butter knives came from France. They were used there in the 16th century by high society, which made these knives popular and socially acceptable in the form we know them today.
A classic butter knife is not a cutting tool, but is only used to spread spreads, creams or butter. It therefore does not have a sharp blade, but is blunt with a rounded, bulbous tip. Classic butter knives are well suited as children’s knives, as they pose almost no risk of injury.
So the Yoshikawa Nulu stainless steel butter knife is a twist on the classic butter knife.
Yoshikawa Corporation ( Tsubame, Niigata Prefecture
) kitchen utensils are grouped in EAtoCO series. The neologism stands for the connection between eating and cooking (engl. EAT and COCKING). The long tradition of the Yoshikawa company, which has been producing kitchen utensils for over 70 years, speaks for the high quality of the products and can also preserve the local craftsmanship.
