Need a knife?

Every kitchen needs a good knife. There are few things worse than trying to chop things with a dull blade. You shouldn't have to saw through a potato or an onion. But I have to admit, until recently, I only had one knife that was worth using, which made poor Caroline miserable whenever I made her use the dull ones from one of those knife sets with a dozen different knives that I got as a wedding gift. While practical in theory, I would have take one sharp one over the set. What good are 12 knives if none of them can cut anything?

I would say all you really need is a good carving knife (or maybe a chef's knife if you prefer), a serrated knife, and a small paring knife. Once you've got those three, the rest are superfluous.

So what do your knives look like? If, like most kitchens, they're in need of an update, you're in luck! To show our appreciation to our readers, we're offering this 2 piece carving set to one lucky person. The knife is delightfully sharp and comfortable in one's hand, while the meat fork will come in handy for your Christmas goose (or turkey or roast or suckling pig or whatever you have). Simply leave a comment on this post before MONDAY December 13th. The winner will be randomly selected using random.org.
