When you think of using silverware, you likely imagine them neatly perched on a napkin, safe from germs that live on the table. Of course, we all know that the second the meal starts these utensils will be all over the place. You don’t really think about re-engineering silverware to keep it from bacteria, but hey, someone has to, right?
The Standing Knife seems to have taken inspiration from Weebles, as they always seem to wobble, but never fall down. This sterling silver piece of cutlery has a heavy base that will keep it upright so that any butter or other spreadable item won’t be polluted by exterior forces on the table. It’s a $37 purchase that is dishwasher safe, and probably won’t fit in the drawer.
