    i was at my mother-in-law's for dinner tonight, and seeing her cutting some salmon filets was just painful. she was using some kind of dull serrated knife, and really struggling to get cuts started. i've offered to get some of her other knives sharpened (she has a couple very dull Warthers that could be made into decent knives), and her son is a knife enthusiast and has offered the same, but she just isn't interested. she is a pretty big cooking enthusiast, too.

    ironically, when I've managed to get my wife using the sharpened knives she finds it easier to use than the ones she tries to use otherwise.

    I came across this:

    Don't just look at the pic, but read the description. It was custom made for a sushi chef who was writing a book, yet the knife ended up at an online store in Florida. I wonder why?

    It states in the description further down, that it was previously owned. It's an ugly knife regardless

    Yikes. It was custom made, returned, and now being retailed.

    She probably didn't want to walk the fifty yards to other side of the kitchen to the other knife blocks.

    At least it's more appropriately priced.

    lol. I think if used right you should have holes in the tip area.

    Exactly...sushi Chefs are pathologically obsessed with sanitation. That thing wouldn't make it through the back door.
