I can attest that these knives I got are superbly sharp. While dicing onions tonight, the roommate decided to reach in front of me for the paper towel. Snip, goes the knife against the tip of my middle finger. Doh!
Since the knife is so sharp, the cut was clean and wasn’t too painful. This is in stark contrast to my previous dull ‘el cheapo’ knife I used and cut myself on, which is still painful months later, and has left a tiny scar on my thumb. By all means, the new knives are a fantastic investment, I’m just getting my kitchen scars, that’s all.
