When every day is Halloween one can never have too many skeleton-shaped housewares. These awesome skellingtons are the work of artist and metalsmith Simon Fearnhamm at Skelemental, a branch of the Raven Armoury. Pictured here are coffee table, bookends, candleholders, and a three-piece set of cutlery. Each piece of functional art is painstakingly sculpted in wax and then lost-wax cast into steel, bronze, or silver.

Visit the Skelemental website to check out more of their morbid metal marvels.

These awesome utility knives are designed to look like five different species of whale. They’re handmade by Japanese blacksmith Toru Yamashito located in Kōchi Prefecture on the southern coast of Japan. Made of high-carbon steel with blades that form the whales’ baleen-filled mouths, the Kujira Whale Knives were originally created for children as tools for sharpening pencils or cutting paper. Now they’re marketed as multi-purpose tools worldwide. We suspect that animal shapes improve the quality of tools in the same way that cuteness enhances the flavor of food.

Kujira Whale Knives are currently available from Yoshihiro Cutlery via Amazon as well as Hand Eye Supply.

New Knoxville, Ohio-based artist Gary Hovey sees silverware as much more than household utensils that simply sit in a draw when they aren’t in use. Hovey instead uses silverware - forks, knives and spoons alike - to create elaborate stainless steel animals sculptures.

“Upon first glance, the many wildlife figures, like birds, fish, and bears, have realistic shapes. It is only upon closer inspection that the details and texture of the materials become more clear. Each piece of flatware contributes unique qualities: fork prongs create layers of feathers and fur; spoons add rounded curves; and knives produce a shiny flat surface.”
