And perhaps a Kyocera ceramic knife ... introduced 1985. Complements normal steel knives. Great for fruits and vegetables and boneless meats.

About the Ceramic Knife Revolution series
Kyocera started selling ceramic knives in 1985. Materials used to make the knives include unique features which make the knives rust-free, odor-free, and easy to care for.

Good idea. The galley on the boat has some measures, but they're more suited to making gallons of gruel ...

perhaps a set of measuring spoons?
