Hexagon Cake Knife? Hexagon Cake Knife. Hexagon Cake Knife!

A hexagon cake knife is a knife that can cut cake into hexagonal pieces. Matthias Wandel, who is an engineer by trade but moonlights as a woodworking wizard (see his eminently watchable YouTube channel), was in need of such a knife, so he designed and crafted one himself.
