Kitchen Knives Giveaway

I recently received these two knives from Big Kitchen

Mercer Renaissance Forged Riveted Hollow Edge Santoku Knife, 7 Inch


Mercer Renaissance Forged Riveted Chef’s Knife, 8 Inch


If there’s one piece of kitchen equipment that is mandatory, it’s a good knife.

Trying to cook, chop, slice ‘n dice, and simply be productive and efficient in the kitchen is impossible without a proper knife. Lightweight, flimsy, and dull knives are intolerable and I won’t use them.

When I am in the kitchen, I tend to put one (big) knife in my hand and keep it there until everything is chopped, sliced, minced, quartered, cut, and ready. Paring knives and smaller knives have their place, but I prefer bigger knives, in general.

Don’t be scared of the Big Guns.

From cleaning and slicing pineapple

to cleaning and chopping heads of lettuce

To chopping oranges and cucumbers for and Cucumber Orange Dill Relish

to cleaning and slicing watermelon

To dicing the Snickers bars for Snickers Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Or chopping the candy for 3 Musketeers Marshmallow Candy-Stuffed White Chocolate Cupcakes with Fluffy Vanilla Buttercream

…Not a day goes by where I don’t have my knife and cutting board out and in use. Repeat x17 times. Before noon on most days.

These Mercer knives are built solidly, feel nice in my hands, are heavy enough but not too heavy, and most importantly, they get the chopping job done.
