My knife can turn your knife into a chiffonade.

I guess I'm a little lost here, Rob. If you keep your knives sharp - wouldn't you expect them to be sharp when you use them?

When it comes to doing something like seperating a 2-pak of something wrapped in shrink-wrap plastic - I reach for a pairing knife and just use the tip. I know my knives are sharp ... and that is all I need to slice open the wraper.

I hope you are more cautious of your fingers when using a sharp knife!

Well, it wasn't actually my knife. It was one I used to own but gave to my sister. I'm used to mine being sharp but hers are only sharp if I'm around to sharpen them. It appears she hadn't really used it since I gave it to her.

She's the kind of person that will cut a roast and set the knife aside, perhaps to wash in a day or two!
