Strange looking but a great knife.
« on: November 18, 2020, 07:56:49 PM »
This knife isn't something I would have bought but it was a gift from a friend.  She gave it to me along with a Danish Kringle. I looked at it like you might look at a toad hopping down the aisle in church on Sunday the first time I saw it.  Who would make a knife like this and why?   

It cuts bread like nobody's business and meat, and cake, and anything you can think of.  Of course it isn't any better at some things than other good knives but on bread and meat it is really something.  It is just a serrated knife with a strange handle but that handle angle really works, at least for me.

Hey wolfy, I bet it'll get peanut out of the bottom of the jar, too.

 Funny thing,  I have never cared much for serrated knives (except for cutting crusted bread),  but I did have (don't know where it went) a Ginsu utility knife for many many years that I used often for a lot of kitchen chores,  it never got dull,  I used it to cut open food packaging,  bottle seals,  frozen foods, butchers string,  all the stuff you wouldn't want to subject one of your "good" knives to,  and it never needed attention.
 I'd almost forgot about it until I read your post, every time I visit Sally's or other thrift stores I look in the used utensil bin hoping to find another.
