I’m sure you can imagine how many knives I have had over the years. Remember Cut-Co? I bought them cause I felt sorry for the kid selling them. And when I got richer I got a whole set of Henckel for Christmas from my hubby one year. I have always struggled with keeping them sharp, though, consequently I’ve probably bought every kind of sharpener known to Man, and have even taken them to professionals. So, I can’t help you in the Knife dept., except to tell you about my two favorite knives in the world:
First, my tomato knife. It’s from Rada cutlery. They are often sold at outdoor markets. I found my first ones in Pinetop from a little shop that has now closed. But I did find them on line. What I LOVE about this knife is that it is ALWAYS sharp. It even cuts tomatoes that are kind of soft. I love it. Look it up on line.
And now, the GRAND DADDY of all knives:
I was given this fabulous knife by my dear friends, George and Melody, who got theirs from their Favorite Bakery in their home state of Wisconsin: O&H, famous for the Kringle. ohdanishbakery.com. Google them and look at their wonderful menu. About 3 times a year you can find the Kringle at Trader Joe’s here in Arizona. I have bought Blueberry, Apple and pecan, but my favorite is Almond. Anyway, back to the knife. I googled O&M, and looked under Shop “Olaph’s Treasures”. They still sell them.
Enjoy your knives. And don’t get cut. It hurts!! Ask me how I know!!
