I forgot to mention one of the gifts I received from Kevin. We've been collecting (slowly) Wusthoff knives -- really good ones. We've got a ten inch heavy chef's knife, and before Christmas bought ourselves the joint gift of a good bread knife. So for Christmas Kev bought me the Japanese knife, which is just lovely.
I had to use it tonight, of course. And I'll say this for it. For meat, its nothing but a nice sharp knife. But for vegetables, there is something about the shape, blade style, and weight that makes it perfect. I chopped my onions perfectly sliced and small. The blade slid through the cucumber skin without catching at all, and I was able to peel the cucumber effortlessly.
Yes, I'm in love with my knife.Posted by Deb Atwood at December 25, 2002 08:55 PM | TrackBack
