Electra Blue Dinner Knife, 1986
This is a Dinner knife. It was designed by David Tisdale and made for Sasaki. It is dated 1986 and we acquired it in 1988. Its medium is anodized aluminum. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Known for his jewelry and metalwork in anodized aluminum, designer Tisdale chose blue as one of the colors for his Electra flatware series of 1986 because it is a signature anodized color, and it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at that time.
