Concept and production for a range of wooden handles for kitchen knives. Attached with OUL Sakai blades masterfully crafted by Fukui&Co Ltd. from Sakai, Japan. My friend Aku Kihlberg curates the blades as he specializes in high-quality knives, and imports them from Japan with his company Kiki Knives. KXK stands for Kiki x Koivikko / Koivikko x Kiki, and it is our playground for things we love to do. The first batches have been sold to professionals and enthusiasts without a need for marketing.
