“Apostrophe” is an unusual object that does not reveal its function at first sight. It works like an agile plough to cut through the peel, leaving marks that are free and even decorative. The gesture is also made pleasing, by the ergonomic hold that adapts well to the fingers and by the material in precision-cast steel with mat finish to improve the grip.
