Ingenious new knife will solve all your hard butter problems

No more tears on toast.

THERE’S NO FEELING quite like it. Getting the butter from the fridge and it feels less like creamy dairy produce, and more like a cement brick ready to ruin your life.

Well, NO MORE. File this Kickstarter under ‘ingenious necessary inventions we wonder why no one had invented up until now’, or just ‘cool stuff’, if that won’t fit.

Sacha Pantschenko, Norman Oliberia, and Craig Andrews promise ‘No more tears on toast!’ with their new Stupendous Splendiferous ButterUp.

Their knife promises to turn that icy block of solid frustration into smooth, soft, spreadable goodness. The knife comes with a “built-in grater to aerate and soften butter making it easy to spread”.

There are no sharp edges and you’ll even use less butter than usual. Are there ANY downsides?
