Are you, like me, the owner of many knives, none of which is sharp enough to cut butter? I'm NOT anymore!
When Tiff was here Saturday for the cooking marathon, she wisely brought a Santoku knife from Target with her. I admired it for the lime green color of the handle, blade and all, and it turned out to be a sharp wonder of a blade. So this morning, after dropping mr. kenju off at therapy, I hied myself to Target. They didn't have the lime green knife (:-/) but they did have the regular steel and black handle knives of that type for $19.99. I know that most of you would not consider that expensive for a good carbon steel knife with a full tang blade, but I love a bargain, and that wasn't it!
Imagine my surprise when I rounded the end cap and saw a display of pink products in honor of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. I was amazed to see the very same knife, only with a pink handle and regular steel blade - for, get this - $4.95!!
Now, you may recall reading that I hate pink with a fiery passion -but to be able to buy a $20 knife for $5 - I can overlook my hatred of all things pink. You can get the bargain too, along with a lot of other pink kitchen gadgets, as long as you go there before the end of October. I usually don't do commercials....LOL....but this is an excellent bargain for a very worthy cause!
