For cutting Hello Kitty shapes out of strawberries or chopping heads off tiny animals.
Seriously though, I have been on the market for a non-$5-Chinatown-knife (nothing against those…my kitchen is stocked with them). But I figured it was time to move on to the next level. Yesterday I saw a more serious cousin of the knife pictured above, a Shun Santoku, on sale at Macy’s…for $123.00. The pink one is only 20 bucks but doesn’t seem very practical for me…I am not really into coatings of any kind–be they resins, silicones, teflons, etc.
The best deal I’ve found yet is this 7″ Santoku knife on sale at Zabar’s for $36.00. Any thoughts?
