Umm - that's a butter knife. You can buy an almost identical thing in Tesco (UK supermarket) for about $5 (equivalent)!

Someone thinks Americans are stupid.

They look nicer than the tired old streak knives that some places insist on using.

Except that Wüsthof is a German company and the Epicurious article appears to be mocking the knife's creation. BTW, Epicurious is a U.S. based magazine. Methinks Americans are smarter than we look.

And it's Europeans who typically cut burgers with a knife. Our Danish exchange student did that. In public. In a restaurant.

Per a linked story within the article that Andy first posted, the McDonald's in France are providing plastic cutlery with their higher-end burgers so that their customers can have utensils to cut their burgers. And, I suppose, hold their pinky fingers in the air, GG.

"McDonald's" and "higher-end burgers" just don't belong in the same sentence...
