Product Description

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

Manufacturer: g.tec medical engineering GmbH, Sierningstrasse 14, 4521 Schiedlberg, Austria,

    This is a very creative idea. It was fun to use the knife and think that my brain activity was reflected in the knife. (It’s actually Prof. Pfurtscheller’s brain activity, but mine should be similar – as Prof. Pfurtscheller proved). My only concern: if the activity was recorded from site C3, then it would be slightly different for left-handed people.

    This knife is absolutely gorgeous, and a must-have for any neurotechnology enthusiast. It should also make for a unique gift to important business partners in the industry.
