Potato Peeler Handle Design —

After rigorous hours peeling potatoes in an exhaustive study to document the functional and ergonomic constraints of various popular peeler designs, I iterated on the handle through hand, tool, and then CNC made models. Criteria for the design included comfort, stability, control, and versatiliy - this peeler was specifically designed so that its rear curve would nest in the interior curve of the palm and provide a stable grip of the peeler.

Models handmade from renshape design foam, hand-carved in cherry wood, and CNC-cut from high density renshape. 3D modeling work done in Rhinoceros.
