    I was getting all happy chopping garlic and peppers and shallots and then I started chopping the basil. It didn't got so well chopping basil. This time I was prepared though and had bandaids on hand. It was a bleeder.

    It's no joke. I cut myself again washing it. The back corner of the blade nicked me and I started bleeding from another finger.

    Did the knives come with a penny taped to the bottom of the box? Otherwise that's why you cut yourself.

    I was just thinking about our knife journey yesterday Bud. other than the self inflicted bit how is it? advantages over non granton edges??

    my knife block is in, I will share how I feel about it when I pick it up. depending on your review I may go right to paring knife next.
