Bread knife "Gert Pfurtscheller"

Knives inspired by neurotechnology.

In the seventies, Gert Pfurtscheller developed a method to describe cognitive processes, known in the scientific world as event-related desynchronization.  The knife’s hand-cut blade shows this event-related desynchronization recording with a g.tec brain-computer interface while a person imagines a cutting movement with his right hand. The EEG was recorded from the left hemisphere at electrode position C3.

The blade is hand-forged and consists of a single piece of Chrome-Vanadium-Molybdenum steel. The handle is made of olive wood, which is a couple hundred years old. The knife is hand-sanded in the Alps of Austria. Blade length: 21 cm
