Traditional bread-knives made by local craftsmen, with so called 'scoobydoo'-embellishment, a typical South-African embroidery technique using bright colored recycled phone and internet-wire. The blades are reclaimed from discarded industrial bread slicing machines. The scoobydoo-project is an initiative of R. Meeusen in his capacity of entrepreneur with a penchant for sustainable local produce.
