World First CNC Titanium Oyster Knives

Emergo Designs create worlds first titanium oyster knives, made using the SYIL X7.

With the help of the SYIL X7 CNC Machine fitted with an LNC controller, Emergo have brought a unique product to market. Watch how a billet of titanium is transformed into a masterpiece, almost too pretty to use! 

Alex Bol, Owner of Emergo Designs said;

"Ever since I’ve graduated as an engineer, I wanted to bring CNC into my knife making process. It takes a lot of thought and programming to run a computer controlled milling machine. The advantage is that once the computer knows what to do, the making becomes partially automated."

The reason why I wanted to start CNC milling these oyster opening tools is the extra creative freedom that it’s offering. Titanium is more flexible and it’s impossible to rust. But you could never successfully work the metal by hand."

"My knives are a combination of craftmanship and modern manufacturing."

"In 2014 I developed my first oyster knife. Now my company Emergo Designs proudly makes and sells exclusive oyster opening tools that ship all over the world."

Making these machines some of the most reliable on the market. (more…)
