While this utensil is most certainly classified as a ‘luxury good’, I would be very curious to see/hear if it’s worth the price tag.
The sterling silver TUKAANI is a hand made eating device for Asian food consumers in the West.
It may be held as traditional chopsticks. But unlike the disposable wooden chopsticks, TUKAANI is hand washable and much easier to set on – and use at table.
The matt surface and taut movement allow steady grip in the hand. The curl at the end of the TUKAANI provides eased food picking and delivery to the mouth. The loop also allows easier hanging, storage and display.
The Toucan’s bill provided inspiration for this cutlery project
1 TUKAANI: € 293
1 100% linen serviette: € 16
1 holder: € 48.50
