Hey there! Welcome back to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
One of the biggest challenges individuals face in the kitchen is cutting meats, cheeses, veggies, pizza, and more.  If you’re looking for a new kind of knife to make this task easier, check out the Samurai 360!
The Samurai 360 is a circular knife that makes precision cutting “easy and comfortable.”  The blade rotates 360º so it stays in constant contact with whatever you’re cutting.  The knife is ideal for individuals with arthritis and more as you can use less force while cutting.
Features of the Samurai 360 are:
  • Made of stainless steel that won’t dull after use
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Easily cuts, minces, slices, and chops
  • Comes with:
    • Blade cover
    • Pastry wheel
    • Countertop stand
Check it out on Amazon to learn more.
