Catherine de Medici is said to have taught the French how to eat with a fork. Over 400 years later, chefs, metalsmiths and craftspeople are still creating specialized culinary tools to enhance their enjoyment of food and cooking. Which is precisely why Brooklyn Abe Shaw founded Eating Tools.
With an eye for the extraordinary, and over 15 years of experience working with artists in the custom-knife-making world, Shaw collects functional, beautiful utensils — many of them handmade and one-of-a-kind — to help fellow food-lovers find the right tool for the job.
Eating Tools features innovative implements such as custom knife-maker Alan Folts’s TiSuShi Sticks, the hybrid cooking/serving/eating utensil Chongs, crafted from medical-grade titanium, the eco-friendly bamboo Picnic Rollup set and the strong, flexible Draper spatula, available with a flat or angled head.
