It's my birthday this week. So I bought myself a present. I've never had a decent knife.
If you've never been married, you never get to have a 'wedding list' which enables you to properly equip your kitchen. Hence my collection of charity shop bargains, French brocante finds, stuff my mum got rid of, things found in bins...
Good knives are very expensive. At John Lewis a Global vegetable knife is 70 odd quid. I don't really like the ultra modern design of Global knives (particularly the handles) but they are supposedly one of the best brands.
I decided to go for the 'Global' Santoku knife which cost £53.
"A blade of many talents, Santoku literally means "three good things", referring to its masterful handling of slicing, dicing and mincing."Must hand wash it and dry it. NOT allowed to put it in the dishwasher.
I have magnetic wall strips to store my knives. This saves counter space and knife blocks are unhygenic.
