I love my new knives! My old ones were so dull that when the knife slipped this summer while I was cutting a cantaloupe and went with some force into my hand-- it didn't break the skin. It obviously would have been terrible if it had broken the skin, but the fact that it didn't doesn't speak very highly for the knives.
In addition to nicking ourselves, we've been putting considerably more wear and tear on the cutting boards. So I'm thinking we might need to get new ones soon. A plastic one, and a big butcher block one.
This is what I'm thinking for plastic:
|Antibacterial Cutting Board!|
|Maple Wooden Cutting Board|
|Wooden Cutting Board-- FDA safe!|
|Maple and Walnut Cutting Board|
But thats the story of a birthday present that is awesome that is turning into a hunt for new cutting boards.
