Midweek Modness: Let’s Knife

mid century modern knives

Our cutlery drawer is basically a hodge-podge of tablewares based on a design by Ecko Eterna known as “Canoe Muffin.” I believe they were made inthe 1960s or ’70s and were made to mimic Scandinavian, wood-handled flatware.

Our collection features slightly different versions of the Ecko pieces, they all share faux wood handles and this makes them kind of match. I used to find examples of these settings all the time, but the last decade has been kind of a dry spell for new additons. Until a couple of weeks ago when I found these knives at the Value Village in Kitchener.
