About the solution
The design incorporates a stainless bar with two support posts. Springs located within the posts apply a downward bias on the bar. The point of a Cook or Chef knife is inserted under the biased bar, retaining the knife point in position. The bar moves vertically, allowing the knife to move forward, back, up and down, with the point of the knife remaining in contact with the bar at all times.
This enables anyone to cut, chop and slice using a minimum of effort and requires only a light grip on the handle of the knife.
Graham was diagnosed with arthritis when he was 17 years old, be he only paid attention to his health problem until a few years later.
“Despite being diagnosed with Severe Erosive Rheumatoid Arthritis I continued surveying for another 17 years before the symptoms progressively worsened to a point where I had to eventually give up a job I loved, no longer being able to cope with the physical outdoor work”, he explained.
During his job, Graham acquired some design skills that would be helpful.
“I was bowling a cricket ball to my young son in the cricket nets, something we did most evenings during the summer. I stepped up one evening to bowl the ball and was suddenly unable to my roll my arm over. I have never been able to throw or bowl a ball again. Pain you can treat, for me it was the sense of loss that was the hardest to deal with”, the inventor observed.
Because Graham loves to cook, he decided to design a cuttboard and knife kitchens. He registered the patente, and founded his own company – Cibocal – in 2009.
“I love to cook, but had become increasing frustrated at my inability to hold and use a cooks knife while preparing meals in the kitchen. If cooking becomes hard work, it’s no longer fun. To compensate for my poor hand grip I held a chef knife in one hand and instinctively placed my other hand on the tip of the knife, enabling me to cut and chop more effectively.
The cutting boards cost between 128 NZD to 188 NZD, and the knives between 74 NZD to 87 NZD.
