Entry Description

The Bionomic Professional Cutlery is not like other ergonomic cutlery. It is a revolutionary design that works to save the entire body from the stress of cutting, chopping and slicing. The difference in this cutlery is found in the patented humpback grip. The grip is bionomically designed with an egg-shaped bulge that provides support solutions.

The special Bionomics Grip palming method supports the dent in the palm of your hand allowing you a secure griping angle that is a natural state. It supports your hand and arm in an effective posture to minimize muscle stress and fatigue. You can maintain a stable grip all day long. This knife can prevent injuries and reduce wrist strain even when used for many years. 

In addition to the innovative grip design, the materials and finish of the grip are remarkable.  Crafted from eco-friendly materials the grip is non-porous, stain resistant, durable and beautiful. As a bonus, the unique micro-finish of the grip surface prevents hand slippage even when heavily covered with oils. 

The knife originates from the design and technical skills of two countries.  The blade, sourced from Sakai Japan, is forged by world-class  bladesmiths.  The Bionomics grip is exquisitely handcrafted in the US using the latest ergonomic design principles and eco-friendly materials.

Award-winning designer Henry Haneda designed the Bionomics Professional Cutlery. Mr. Haneda has been teaching design of ergonomically designed grips since 1980.  Sales of this advanced professional chef's knife series was launched in 2014.
