Rectangles? Squares? Pie slices? Who says dessert has to come in that shape? Why not triangles, circles, or even hexagons? Master of all things woodworking [Matthias Wandel] decided to solve this problem, and delved into a bit of metal working.
Using a strip of 26 gauge stainless steel, [Matthias] threw together some wood clamps in order to bend the metal into funky looking blade. He then put slits into a nice wooden handle and assembled the whole thing with a very slight positive curve, allowing you to roll the knife as you cut your confectionery.
As you can see in the following video, it works pretty well — and always, it’s a pleasure to see this man work.
Just don’t try to cut one of these LED filled cakes! Fun fact of the day, did you know [Matthias] used to work at Blackberry, or rather RIM at the time? He once designed a test jig using LEGO to solve an expensive problem they were having!
