I have a favorite knife. Or shall I say, I had? I loved my knife and carried it with me to every job (thank goodness I didn’t have any jobs at the airport). I bought it at Sur La Table about 5 years ago. It’s a Furi Rachael Ray 7″ Edgy Santoku Knife with Gusto Grip.
After cutting up 30 pounds of chicken on the bone, my hand started uncontrollably twitching and throbbing with pain and I knew I needed a different knife. It was the “Gusto Grip” that sold me. It’s squishy, soft and most importantly orange. All my cooking equipment is orange – my favorite color. I do this so that I don’t leave anything behind in someone’s kitchen or accidently take home my client’s things.
I guess I will have to replace it. Should I mount it in a shadow box for the wall? Yes, I will go now to buy the appropriate box / coffin for my lovely, orange, squishy handled knife and a big box of Kleenex….
