    Yeah that's exactly what they look like too.

    I like how the two reviews on the site are horrible. One guy says that food wedges between the blades. Great. Now you have to try poke out food between two blades. At least they won't be that sharp.

    Here is the quote: "I find this very frustrating to use for chopping onions, celery, or other fresh veggies, due to the chunks being caught up in between the blades, choking the chopping action. This means I have to stop and remove these chunks before continuing to chop. Not time saving for me at all."

    Those Ken Onions knives are so friggin' stupid-looking. They seem like they were all engineered by people who have never cut anything in a kitchen. Knives for Microwavers to put out on display

    But the lack of pointiness is so non-threatening! We don't want to hurt our food's feelings, do we?


    BTW that halftime knife says "just like when pros hold 2 chef's knives". Oh yeah, because I do that ALL the time.

    To bad they don't realize that that the two knives are one in each hand!

    It's a variation on the good old double-bladed mezzaluna:



    Never saw much point in that, either, unless you're running a minced herbs factory.

    Jeeze, chopping herbs is so easy it is just ridiculous to drag out more stuff that has to be cleaned! It seems to be an American trait to come up with labor saving devices that end up causing more labor than they save.

    Actually, I think the mezzaluna and double-bladed mezzaluna are Italian inventions from the 1800s. Not sure about that...
