Overview   Process   Hi Res  

Task: to make a wide-application utility cutting tool.

Ergonomics are the basis of the Maketikus utility knife, making it superbly comfortable to use in any position. Its complex, multi-faceted body allows you to work with your hand “floating” or supported.

Your hand moves naturally and freely in any position.

The plastic body is resistant to acetone and other organic solvents.
