The Voi knife, made of maple wood, is a minimalist version of a traditional wooden butter knife. Designed by Yoshimada Yomada, the Voi butter knife is ideal for spreading butter on bread, but also spreads cream cheese, jams, peanut butter and hummus smoothly and easily with its maple blade. The beautiful partly darkened surface of the spatula is achieved by charring it – this is a traditional Japanese finishing method and surface treatment for wooden products. The name of the knife, Voi, means butter in Finnish.
Hand-crafted in Finland, the Voi butter knife is part of the Lokal Kollektion series by the Helsinki-based gallery Lokal. The collection consists of unique, locally-manufactured products made in small-scale production, many even by hand in the designers' own workshops.
