The Ergonomic Cutting Knife, Born and Crafted in Boston

The ErgoKIWI FOR RETAILERS

The ErgoKiwi was conceived in Architecture School. The design helped so many of our fellow students that we decided to bring it to Kickstarter… and here we are today!

 
 
 
 

Simple Design, Better Cutting

We've re-imagined the traditional pen knife to be more comfortable and easy to use. The form eliminates the pain and discomfort experienced when force is applied to your index finger. By keeping that joint straight you can work for longer periods of time without interruption.  The organic shape of handle allows you to hold it in a way that's most natural for you.

The Ergo Kiwi is a much safer and easy to use precision knife. It’s essentially your hands new best friend.

Durability and Function

Not only is the ErgoKiwi designed to last, but like all great design, the magic of the Kiwi is in it’s simplicity. Three simple concepts inspired the design, yet more than two years of R&D have gone into the ErgoKiwi you see today.

Introducing the Plastic Kiwi

We designed the Ergokiwi to last. As product designers, we believe that simplicity leads to beautiful design. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that all the materials we use are the best available, from the wood in our handmade Kiwis to the stainless steel used to manufacture all of our components. While our products may cost a little bit more, they are designed to last much longer than your conventional knife.

Your Kiwi is a Reflection of your craft

Materials are as unique as the individual, each Kiwi material has been chosen for its dynamic physical properties.  Below is the variety of offerings we have available at this time.

Pricing Below is for Wholesale only.

 

 

 

 
ErgoKiwi 2.0_Wholesale
12.50

MSRP - $25.00

Comes with 5 Pack of Excel Blades, Canvas Totes by request

The original Kiwi was made on a 3D printer, out of acrylic, and hundreds  of iterations have led to the one you see here. 

Today the Plastic Kiwi is made from injected molded Polycarbonate, making it virtually invincible.  Any areas vulnerable to abrasion have been  reinforced with metal parts to ensure longevity.    A magnet was designed to hold together all of the necessary mechanics and even lets you store your Kiwi in unconventional places. 

We have scrutinized the manufacturing process to make ensure a reliable tool that will never fail.   Made from injection molded polycarbonate and hand-sanded for a satin finish.   

Plywood ErgoKiwi_Wholesale
39.00

MSRP - $75.00

Our Plywood model is by far our most popular handle.  Made from airplane-grade plywood, each Kiwi is comprised of 104 interlocking layers for maximum durability.  

This kiwi is sealed with 3 layers of polyurethane, then finished with 1,000 grit to highlight the beautiful grain unique to this industrial material.

Bocote ErgoKiwi_Wholesale
42.00

MSRP - $80.00

People commonly admire the tactile experience of picking up the Bocote Kiwi.  Bocote is a hardwood native to Central America with one of the most beautiful grain patterns we have ever seen.  It is naturally a heavier hardwood, which is evident when holding this Kiwi.    

Interesting fact, when cut, the Bocote secretes a resin that hardens to protect the fibers within.  As a result, it dulls all of our bits and takes much longer to cut.  Alas, this has always been our favorite handle, the one we work with everyday.   

Each Kiwi has been handcrafted in our studio and is mounted with a stainless steel latch to ensure a long, durable future.

Paperstone ErgoKiwi_Wholesale
45.00

MSRP - $90.00

We are in love with the tactility of this beautiful handle… We are in love with the tactility of this beautiful handle… it feels like stone yet made from compressed paper. Paperstone is a sustainable alternative to stone, traditionally used as an architectural material, especially for counter tops. It has the genuine hand-feel of stone, yet the magic is that it’s made from compressed, recycled paper and a non-petroleum resin. It’s exceptional durability and unique finish is the reason why we are so excited about it!
