This butter knife is made from a single material: porcelain. A rarely-used material for this typology but one that is widely used in tableware and also present in some kitchen knives. It is fired at a high temperature and is naturally non-porous which makes for smooth serving and easy cleaning. With a deliberately soft shape, it takes some formal cues from traditional butter knives, therefore signalling to its intended purpose.
