Modern Stone Age Tools

Combining the best of both ages, Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow gave stone knives and axes modern plastic handles:

the set is a result of an experimental exploration of the realm of tool making. where stone and flint tools have been the means of  our ancestors' survival for over a million years, they magnify our bodily (teeth, fingernails, fists etc.) capabilities of cutting and chopping, sawing and pounding. through a method of three-dimensionally scanning and printing, the ancient artifacts are digitally outfitted with  custom-designed handles, encapsulating the rugged forms in a perfectly enclosed case. by juxtaposing the polarities of the  manufacturing processes in computer generated forms, an intersection of material technologies and functionality coincide on a tangible scale.
