We’ve all done it and we’ve all been annoyed by it. Trying to spread butter that just been taken out of the fridge. It’s not happening, is it? All you’re gonna do is tear up the bread. Right?
Well, this truly awful global problem that’s been causing us so much heartbreak and unhappiness all these years could FINALLY be at an end. Australian start-up firm DM Initiatives have come up with this beast… The Butter Up Knife:
And what a thing of beauty it is. It’s got a built-in grater which allows cold butter to be torn into thin little softened ribbons, a serrated edge and it’s broad, allowing easy spread. Here it is in action being clearly the greatest cutlery innovation ever…
Don’t worry, we’re not alone in agreeing this butter knife is the best thing since, well, sliced bread. DM are currently trying to raise $38,000 Aussie Dollars to get it launched via Kickstarter. So far they’ve raised £300,000. And counting. SERIOUSLY.
This simple little thing has , weirdly, really caught the public imagination. Who knew we were all so desperate for more easily spreadable butter, huh?
