The client finds it difficult to safely hold a kitchen knife with her split-hook prosthesis.

The plastic handle of the client’s knife was removed and the blade drilled to accept two small stainless steel pins welded in place. The pins were located such that the hooks locate around them and the end of the knife tang locates into the hinge part of the hook under the elastic bands.

This proved so successful, the client asked for other knives to be modified in a similar way.
