I got knives for Christmas! Several kitchen gadgets, really, but this post is about the knives. Mr. and Mrs. Royuk bought us a Yoshiblade – a ceramic blade that is wicked sharp. It is sooooo sharp! I love it, love it, love it, but it points out to me how dull my own knives have become. I need to find a place that sharpens knives.
Along with the knife they gave us a vegetable peeler, and my parents also sent me a vegetable peeler – a beautiful steel one with serrated blades.
Dueling peelers! I took some photos of them being used, but they also involve my knobbly hands, so I’m not showing them. The metal peeler has good heft and just glides right through the peel. It’s effortless and very satisfying to use.
The ceramic peeler scares the bejeebees out of me. It’s just such a contradiction – it’s so light and it looks like the toy razor you’d get in a kid’s “Shave Just Like Daddy!” kit, yet it’s so deadly. I’m usually not afraid of knives, but I have great respect for that peeler.
So, the verdict? I love knives. The end.
