Khetan, Ayushi (2015) Design of an Ergonomic Knife Handle. BTech thesis.



Knives! Although they are not the most expensive piece of equipment in a commercial kitchen, they are the most valuable. The aim of the present research is to design a customized knife handle based on different postures of hand while cutting in kitchen. A customized design is made using taking imprints of various hand postures on a soft clay cylindrical handle. Proposed design is compared with the existing handles and is assessed with the group of selected candidates during its usage and is statistically analysed with other existing handles. The effect of purchasing factors and the comfort rating is thoroughly analysed. The effect of shape and sizes of various knives are identified on different areas of the hand. Results are finally shown with the statistical analysed data
