I love these modern stone and flint tools made by designers Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow. I want that axe!
The set is a result of an experimental exploration of the realm of tool making. Where stone and flint tools have been the means of our ancestors’ survival for over a million years, they magnify our bodily (teeth, fingernails, fists etc.) capabilities of cutting and chopping, sawing and pounding. Through a method of three-dimensionally scanning and printing, the ancient artifacts are digitally outfitted with custom-designed handles, encapsulating the rugged forms in a perfectly enclosed case. By juxtaposing the polarities of the manufacturing processes in computer generated forms, an intersection of material technologies and functionality coincide on a tangible scale.
