ButterUp Butter Knife

This revolutionary butter knife makes cold butter easily spreadable; it is so ingenious that it is sold at the Museum of Modern Art's Design Store—and pretty much nowhere else. A row of small droplet-shaped holes on one side of the blade function as a grater specifically designed for cold butter; simply run the knife over cold butter to soften and gather it in thin ribbons. ButterUp has a wider blade than other butter knives, which is ideal both for collecting the grated ribbons and spreading butter more evenly. And unlike other items that have niche functions, ButterUp's knife is as useful as any other butter knife for a broad range of tasks. The grater holes in the blade are small enough that they don't affect its use when spreading jams, nut butters and the like, while its serrated edge works just as well as any other butter knife for getting rid of crusts or cutting toast in half. Plus, cleanup is easy since ButterUp is made from dishwasher-safe stainless steel. Whether you use it for our Tamarind Compound Butter or other spreads such as our Greek Yogurt-Harissa Dip, with such a simple and effective design, why wouldn't you choose the ButterUp knife?
