    1261 - Marek - ok, found it. The curve of that blade really makes sense BUT that handle looks as uncomfortable AF! Have you had a chance to try it yet?

    Oh wait, you mean we can customize our signatures?

    1262 @TheCaptain I wondered more about usage - is there a relevant improvement in handling between "sharp enough" and "very sharp" scissors?

    1263 - In my house and for the stuff you mentioned, no. In fact there is only one pair of scissors I keep stupid sharp and those are my sewing scissors. My family knows they do.not.touch them! I even keep a few pair of those never gets dull type with the rounded serrated edges and rounded tips so we can do stupid stuff with them (kind of like grown up safety scissors) without damaging ourselves too much. YMMV depending on how clumsy you and your family are.

    The curved blade DOES make sense - that's what attracted me. Only just tried it out, so not enough to comment on comfort as yet. But it is sharp enough to earn a hook in the kitchen - could cause bleeding in a drawer. Jon at JKI has a similar one on offer.

    1266 we have a oxo good grips t peeler that is actually very comfortable to use. If they made that with a curved blade it may be close to perfect.

    1267 Nah. Just couldn't think of anything worth saying. One of those days.

    But, the Oxo Good Grips peeler is my favorite. The straight one. They have, or had, a Y-shaped one, but I hate that design. A bit of a curve would be nice, though.

    EDIT: Just noticed you said you have a T peeler, which may be what I called a Y-shape.

    1268 in order not to derail another thread even more.

    What can I do about that syndrome ... swarf and/or blood on fingers always makes me full of both questions and opinions about geometry...

    1269 got nothing for you on geometry. Only cut myself once so far sharpening and I attribute that more to luck than skill. I find I have more control with thinner mud but that's not really a surprise.

    We actually have both. I prefer the straight for carrots. The T or Y one for everything else.
