The Vegetable Peeler Purpel is a Timeless Design Object
Since 1947 unchanged and timeless. The ergonomic handle is composed of one piece of aluminum. The stainless tempered steel blade is the sharpest on the market. The vegetable peeler comes with a pivoted blade and a side knife for cutting out eyes of potatoes. Great for peeling vegetables and fruits, as well as slicing chocolate, and cheese. We have 8 avaiable colors: Red, gold, green, lime green, blue, pigeon blue, purpel and black. See here all color versions.
It was Alfred Neweczezal who produced the very first vegetable peeler Rex. 60 years later it is still a Swiss made product. In fact a good portion of them are even handmade.
Because of its brilliant design and durability, Rex can be found in some of the most important museums and design books in the world. A true classic. The fact that the handle is made of recycled aluminum makes it to a sustainable product.
