|IKEA Paring Knife - $1.99 AUD|
I can't believe how effective this knife is.
It could well be that as a non-chef, non-foodie, knives have never been a high priority in my kitchen so I may not actually know what to look for in a knife. I know my husband gets frustrated with the in-effective tools currently sitting in the knife block. (My argument is that they were a wedding present and we should be damn grateful for them instead of whining about them.)
But now that I've seen what this little gem can do, I think I might ditch the 18 year old wedding gift and be done with gratitude and get a new set from IKEA.

Getting the school lunches ready, chopping up salads and cutting up fruit has never been so easy for me. I'm serious!
I may have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about, but next time you're in IKEA take two bucks with ya and give it a whirl.
(You may of course turn around and tell me in your best Mick Dundee voice "that's not a knife ..." because you've already got a big ol' fancy set ... but if you are a kitchen peasant like me then this might just be the new utensil for you.)

Another completely random fact: As a teen my husband thought guerrilla warfare was a bunch of fighting monkeys.
Have you used the IKEA knives?
Do you have a fancy set of high performance knives at your joint?
What random "how-something-got-its-name" or "I-completely-got-that-wrong" facts can you share?
