Well, I could live without it, but it is scary as heck. I'm worried about all my microplane graters, they have a habit of taking off a kiss from my knuckles periodically. This one is also particularly scary, though it will change your flank steak to sirloin given the correct marinade.

Yeah, I'd have to say my knives as well.

That's a neat looking tenderizer, Foxy, I'm sure I saw something like that on a cooking show years and years ago.

The other one I saw just the other day with Martha Steward - worked like a push stamp. She was using it to pierce the duck skin for rendering.

I just bought one of these recently but haven't used it yet.

You need a pair of these GLOVES. I use them with my Microplanes and with my mandoline.

Without a doubt, the single most indispensable tool on the planet! I carry mine in a holster on my belt.

My set of knives and mezzalune. Really, though, I can't do without any of it. I consider my set of measuring beakers vital, but are they essential? You can roll pastry out with a glass bottle, but what would we do without pans and casserole dishes? So I'm stuck on this one. I'd have to keep everything!
