Japanese kitchenware design firms have reinvented the simple butter knife. Butter has always caused issues in the kitchen. From struggling to scrape hard butter on your knife, to destroying your toast when you try to spread it. However, if you use a Japanese butter knife these struggles will be a thing of the past. There are many different kinds of Japanese butter knives, each with slightly different functionality. What they have in common, however, is that they all make it extremely easy to scrape and spread butter. From butter knives with holes, that cut the butter into thin, easily-spreadable strands, to butter spreader knives, that were designed to be able to spread butter smoothly, without damaging even the softest bread below. There are even butter knives designed to cut large blocks of butter into smaller rectangular pieces.
