Kostick is a beautiful and functional range of hand forged cutlery from South Korea. Made using the traditional Bangjja Yugi technique, known as 'bronzeware', this much revered metal has been used since ancient times. The bronzeware combines 78% copper and 22% tin - and produces a subtle golden coloured alloy that also provides durability and antibacterial qualities.
This range combines traditional and contemporary silhouettes with a unique ergonomic profile. The knife has been designed especially for Mud Australia.
David Mellor Design operates on the simple principle that well-designed equipment can improve your life.
David Mellor's approach to design was always to some extent that of a craftsman, in his close involvement in materials and techniques and his insistence on the highest standards of environment and working conditions. All David Mellor buildings have been of special architectural merit. His original studio-workshop in Sheffield was designed in the 1960s by Patric Guest of Mayorcas & Guest and is now a listed building. In the 1970s David Mellor embarked on the restoration of a historic building, Broom Hall, in central Sheffield. The successful integration of the cutlery workshops received an Architectural Heritage Year Award.
The Round Building, David Mellor's cutlery factory in the Peak District National Park, was completed in 1990. Mellor collaborated with the architect Sir Michael Hopkins in evolving a design which is highly functional in a rural area of outstanding natural beauty. The Round Building has won numerous architectural awards.
The David Mellor Design Museum at Hathersage, opened in 2006 in another building purpose designed by Michael Hopkins. The David Mellor Design Museum covers the whole broad spectrum of David Mellor's work from tea spoons to traffic lights over the past half century. David Mellor retired in 2005 and passed away in 2009. His son Corin Mellor, an interior and product designer, is now Creative Director of the company.
