MRK - Rainer Design

Mirko Rainer Mirko Rainer is the Chef/Sommelier and Manager of the renowned Restaurant Atenaeo del vino in Mendrisio in Switzerland. In addition to these pursuits, Mirko is also an expert bow hunter. These two worlds merged and resulted in the production of this collection of exquisite handmade knives. There are two categories of knives that capture his attention, one for the hunt and the other to the art of cooking. The material that Mirko favors for constructing the blades is forged-damask steel, while for the knife handles he uses a variety of rare and unique natural materials. Both types of knives are not only working tools, but also singular objects of art that Mirko masterfully customizes to the specific request of the client.
