Cut Throat Knives has teamed up with internationally renowned graffiti artist INSA with this incredible triple threat limited edition.

INSA's world is one where art, product, graffiti, fetishism, and desire collide. Always with a heavy sense of irony, INSA visually exaggerates the notion of objectification and commodification. His visual motifs confront the fetishisation of products with graphically depicted oversized body parts that are suspended in bold black and white graphic patterns. INSA's works question how we process and consume art, and the transience of both art and object.

2019 is the 15th anniversary of INSA's heel pattern which has seen it placed on not only walls around the world, but on watches, clothing, furniture and now a collection of culinary tools.

The limited editions blades feature unique resin handles that display INSA's heel pattern with three signature colour combinations; Spectre Grey, MTL Sunset and Classic.

This limited edition is comprised of three culinary knives; a Bunka, a Kuchenmesser and an Oyster Knife. Find out about them below.  

 

The release will comprise of 18 Culinary tools total, 6 of each Knife Design with 2 being made in each colour combo. They will be released on Dec 6, and will be available in sets and individually.

6" Bunka

Even if you’ve never heard of its name, there’s a good chance you’re already familiar with and well-accustomed to this knife.

Whether you’re working with vegetables, fish or boneless meat, the Bunka can tackle just about anything.

The handle design lends itself to both pinch gripping while also feeling completely comfortable in handle grip.

 

10" K-Tip Küchenmesser
The Küchenmesser is designed as a multi-purpose kitchen knife. It features a broad blade and spine in line with the handle to effectively manipulate food on a chopping board and a high tip that excels at rock chopping and slicing.

The handle design lends itself to both pinch gripping while also feeling completely comfortable in handle grip.

 

With practice and good technique, the Küchenmesser can be used for practically any kitchen task there is.

BANNED

Oyster Knife

As creatives we push the boundaries. We try to create the best and most beautiful tools, unencumbered by design constraints.

The INSA Oyster Knife was crafted specifically to be an oyster knife - but we always understood we were walking a fine line with regards to legislation on prohibited weapons.

That said, we have been told in no uncertain terms that we are legally not permitted to sell this knife, and we do not want to put our customers in the position where they break the law by owning one.
