You know someone who needs to do a little chopping? We know some knives that need a good home.
Everyone knows some poor soul who lives on fast food (not even the upscale fast food, the lousy fast food!) and swears they'd live more healthy if only someone cared to teach them the impossible world of "cooking." Well, those in the know can tell you the real secret to cooking. It's simple: own a knife and cutting board.
What can't you cook with a knife and cutting board? Not very much. Boil some eggs- AND SLICE THEM! Take some meat- AND CHOP IT UP! Buy a few vegetables- AND PREPARE A SALAD! Take a cake out of the oven- AND ICE IT! THEN SLICE IT! All with the shining class that you'd expect from Shun knives of this caliber.
Okay, technically knives don't have caliber, but it's more of a metaphor thing these days, right? The point is, knives make great gifts.
