DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with no use of the fingers to use a heavy, sharp knife. The knife is mounted to a universal joint made from quarter-inch Lexan plastic (lexan). The unit is attached to the cutting board with a quarter-inch stainless steel carriage bolt. The knife can then be swiveled from side to side, raised and lowered, and sawed in a back and forth motion. In some applications various adaptations to the handle can interface with a support worn on the hand. The adaptation can be added to a wooden or plastic cutting board, to which a raised lip and/or spikes to hold food can also be added for additional assistance. TITLE: The Cutting Board.
