Want a new kitchen knife but don’t want to buy one? Go try to make one out of eatable jelly just like the Japanese YouTuber Attoteki Fushinsha no Kiwami. Famous for creating knives out of unusual things, he is a great source of inspiration for bladesmiths around the world. He is always in limelight for creating blades with materials like pasta, plastic wrap, rice, fish, and aluminum foil. This time again, he has come up with another creative idea of turning edible jelly into kitchen knife that’s great in terms of sharpness.
Making knife out of jelly is one of his latest projects in which he creates something peculiar you would never find in the market. It is really crazy how closely he replicates it to look like the real product. In his YouTube video, Attoteki shows off the entire process, from melting up small pieces of jelly to adding food color and gelatin, cutting into the desired shape, and sharpening with different types of whetstones to give it look and functionality of a kitchen knife.
Attoteki also imprinted a simple pattern on the edible knife to make it a bit more appealing when held in hands. The jelly blade knife is so sharp that it can cut through paper and slice cucumber easily.
In terms of sharpness, it turns out to be better than wood and gemstone. It ranked at number three on his list of non-metallic blades.
The kitchen knife made from plain white rice is another latest project accompanied by the edible jelly knife. If you want to know which one of these two is the sharpest, check out the video below.
