Slice of Hand
First, I’m not telling you to slice your hand. Just wanted to get that out there. It’s a pun. You know, because it sounds like “sleight of hand.”
You’ve probably noticed something odd about these knives. That’s right, they’ve got little dimples on the grip. But if you look even closer, I know it can be hard to see, you might notice the huge holes in the blade itself. Subtle.
You may be thinking, “Why would they do that? Would the holes make the blade weaker? Would this make the knife feel too light?” It’s almost like an instinctual response, to see something that has holes in it when it normally doesn’t, to have a thinner frame, and expect it to be not as strong. But, these knives aren’t weaker at all. They subvert your expectations.
It’s like a magic trick. Everything from your experiences has led you to expect one thing, and then all of a sudden it changes on you. The truth is that these knives are just as if not more competent than their whole-blade counterparts. The holes actually make it so there is less friction between the blade and what’s being cut, and they also prevent slices of food from sticking while you cut.
So I’d say these are pretty neat. Just don’t use them for that trick magicians do with the spinning wheel and the throwing knives. Not that I would have personal experience with this.
