Standing Knife will never let you down

Standing Knife
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.


  • Caitlyn, how can you worry about it not fitting in the drawer?
    I would never put it away. It would have a place on the windowsill where it would give every passerby pangs of jealousy.

  • This “sterling silver piece of cutlery” as you describe it is, according to the website where it can be ordered, made of “polished stainless steel”.
