Side-On Cutlery Makes It Almost Safe to Eat at Your Aunt's Grimy House

Illustration for article titled Side-On Cutlery Makes It Almost Safe to Eat at Your Aunts Grimy House

The germaphobe in us always freaks out a little bit when we see silverware lying on a bare table, either at someone else's house or a restaurant. (Our own table is a chemical-cleaner-scorched wasteland.) So we hope that eventually all silverware will be like Jens-Martin Skibsted's designs for Side-On Cutlery, which have built-in stands that keep the parts that touch your food and your mouth gloriously contact-free from dirty, microbe-infested surfaces. Well, your germy-ass mouth aside. [Mater Design via Boing Boing]

Why not put the "stand" part on the bottom of the handle, right below the business end, rather than on the side? That way you wouldn't have a half-a-spoon and the knife wouldn't be edge-up.
