Fighting with Paring Knives, Kitchen Knives and Scissors
« on: June 03, 2016, 01:44:10 PM »

    "...There seems to be a little fad/craze about paring or fruit knives going around. You know those little kitchen knives just about everyone uses, and here in the States, you can buy for about a dollar in the Dollar store. One guy said when he lands from a plane ride he runs to a cheapy store or supermarket right away and buys a paring/fruit knife. Good idea although I don't know how he'll carry it around, but its good for the hotel room and…thereabouts.

     And I do worry about the hotel room too. I don't exactly travel to the best and safest places. I was in Africa one night, and the power went out, and…well, that's another story. But do take a good look at these paring knives. They are good and they are cheap.

     I saw a fixed blade knife in a knife show one weekend in the 1990s. It was cool. It was about $150. Then my wife and I were in an outlet mall in a kitchen store and they had kitchen knife sets for sale. I saw a set with similar designed wooden handles. I looked closer, I swear, I swear, the middle knife in the set of 8, looked EXACTLY like the $150 knife I saw at the show. The whole kitchen set was like $19.99. Ever since then, I have been really pessimistic about the cost of knives and branding, etc. I am not a collector of knives, per say, so I do not collect them for the sake of admiration – if you know what I mean. To me, they are just a tool. A simple tool. I understand that..."
