Knives Out, Knives In

Pretty much every single thing you do falls somewhere along the spectrum between frustrating and satisfying. There’s nothing groundbreaking about saying this. It’s just basic stuff. You either finish something feeling happy with yourself or just glad that it’s over.

Of course, there are tools you can invest in to move things away from the frustrating end of the spectrum. A good rain slicker will make it less annoying if you’ve gotta walk to work in some bad weather, for example. But rarely do the tools shift something all the way from one end to the other. Most put you firmly in the middle: no longer frustrating, yet not exactly satisfying either.

But there are rare exceptions, items that turn something arduous into something not just tolerable, but downright pleasurable.

Like good knives.

Seriously, if you’ve ever tossed out an old set of dull-ass hand-me-down knives and invested in a sexy block of nice new ones, you know what we’re talking about. Prepping for meals with bad knives is time-consuming and painful. Taking twenty minutes to ineffectually saw and hack your way through something as basic as an onion with your eyes watering and your wrist sore? That sucks.

A good set of knives doesn’t just reduce the time and the pain, though. It makes you feel powerful. Maybe it’s all those years you wasted with the bad set, or maybe it’s some ancient barbarian part of the brain that’s just downright tickled every time you reduce something to minced, diced, or cubed rubble.

It doesn’t matter. Point is, good knives don’t just reduce frustration; they increase satisfaction.

And these are some good knives. They feature “superior, high-carbon stainless steel blades” that have been “precision-tapered” so that they “narrow gradually to an extremely sharp edge.” In other words: much sharp, good chop. Plus they look nice in or out of their classy-ass block. Plus-plus, they’re Cuisinart, so you know they’re good.

Which is all to say: if you’re using crummy old knives, stop! And get yourself this set instead.
