Deglon Meeting Knife Block Set

 
Fibonacci sequence Meeting design• Designed by Mia Noelle Schmallenbach
• Produced by Déglon of Thiers, France, handcrafter of quality cutlery since 1821

The ergonomic design for the Meeting knives was inspired by the Fibonacci Sequence, using the width of an average hand as a starting point. Having patterns in nature, this proportional mathematical formula is used widely in architecture and other fields.

It won first prize in the 5th European Cutlery Design Award (Bourse Européenne de la Création Coutelière) in 2006 (cached), for its innovativeness, seemingly sculpted from one piece of stainless steel, and for its functionality.

Deglon coutelerieAbout Deglon and Mia

In 1921, Swiss-born Jean Deglon founded his knife manufacturing workshop in Thiers, cradle of France's knife making industry. Currently run by his grandson, the company has built up a worldwide reputation for exceptional craftsmanship and peerless quality products.

In 2006, the French Cutlery Association, based in Thiers, organized the 5th edition of the European Cutlery Design Award, a Europe-wide competition that encourages design students to use their creative talents to come up with innovative knife designs. A preliminary selection was made in Paris to select 5 winners who would see a prototype of their design produced in the Thiers workshops.

Famed for its pioneering spirit and thirst for new challenges, the Deglon cutlery company set its sights on Mia Schmallenbach, a young designer studying at the National School of Visual Arts in Brussels.

After 150 hours of hard work, we unveiled the prototype; a unique tool that perfectly embodies the designer's concept. The final jury, held in Thiers, awarded the project first prize, in this prestigious European competition.

Mia Noelle SchmallenbachMia Schmallenbach, Designer

Of German and Sri Lankan origin, Mia grew up in Indonesia and has spent the last six years in Brussels working on a masters degree in industrial design at the National School of Visual Arts in La Cambre. She switched to a full design course after completing a diploma in silk-screen printing, a natural development of her longstanding fascination with design and the environment. Each project is a new challenge that sends a designer on a personal voyage of discovery where they explore new universes, and try out myriad inventive design gambits in search of a novel design that has the power to surprise and amaze.

Deglon display by Henry Hudes"The 5th edition of the European Cutlery Design Award was integrated into our study programme and presented us with a thrilling new challenge - design a set of kitchen knives and their block! I began with attempting to create a 'better' knife by, for example, trying to develop a more ergonomic handle design - the knee-jerk reflex of an inexperienced designer who's still got everything to prove. I then decided to tackle the problem from a different angle by looking at how I could separate the handle from the blade, but this just proved to be another dead end. Deglon from concept to designAfter a lot of thinking, I suddenly had a flash of inspiration; instead of trying to separate the knives, why not try doing the opposite and incorporate them into one single unit? Why not try and design a set of nested knves?"

From Concept to Product

Staying true to the original product concept while factoring in technical production constraints is easier said than done. The first prototype was cut from a single block of steel by our most experienced craftsmen and required weeks of work.

"Meeting" was born of the partnership between Deglon's trademark skills and know-how, and the latest cutting edge technologies. This is the very essence of the Deglon teams' strength; the ability to fashion attractive and functional shapes from a simple block of steel, thus creating knives that are destined to become cultural and artistic objects in their own right. The craftsman's touch is evident everywhere in the production of this block and is what gives it its unique character.

Use and Maintenance Advice

How to remove Meeting knivesTo remove knives from the block, gently press down near the tip, and lift by the handle.

To keep them safe and clean, wipe off food from the blade immediately after use, before the food hardens.

We recommend that you wash them by hand in soapy water, and to dry them carefully with a clean dishcloth. This will help keep them bright and shiny.

To keep a perfect cutting edge, they must be regularly maintained, using a steel as often as once a week, or more frequently if you use them daily. Use an extra-hard steel with abrasive grooves. Use the steel like a file, work it along the blade's whole length, on both sides, maintaining an angle of about 20°. Using light pressure, hone the blade carefully, removing any fine steel shavings. Continue until you have achieved a very thin, razor-sharp cutting edge.

Wipe the steel rod and knife blade with a clean cloth or a piece of kitchen paper after each sharpening, to remove any fine steel filings.

Warranty

Limited lifetime warranty for defects arising from the materials and workmanship, when used for their intended purpose.
