    I know what I like in my kitchen ...



    That'll be sharp, sharp blades. This is how I keep them that way.

    I was making dinner at a friends house recently. He's a butcher, so I figured he'd have some sharp knives. I could have spent a week trying to cut myself with these things.

    Dull knives are definitely no fun in the kitchen.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    You're completely right. Blunt knives are teh shittzer. A cheapo knife with a recent edge on it is way better than a costly knife that's been allowed to get dull.

    I've had enough similar experiences as yours (cooking at friends w/ blunt knives) that now, I'll bring my own, every time.

    SR found another box out in the garage that we still hadn't unpacked. It was almost full of old knives. I don't know where in the world they came from, hadn't used them in the last house either.

    I sorted them into sets and took them to the Women's Exchange, a local consignment place where I get 65% of the sale price and the remainder goes to scholarships for local kids. I kept one knife out of the whole box. It was interesting looking, a double edged bread knive. It was awful, couldn't even cut a slice of bread. I ended up dumping it into the trash, after I put masking tape all over so no one would get cut. I shouldn't have bothered, don't know how anyone could get cut with that painfully dull blade.

    I take my knives to maturi brothers here locally - the sell/lease and sharpen knives - every 4 months or so to be sharpened. Every city is going to have a knife service of some kind . . . . just need to find out who they are and use them. :)
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
