Gift Guide, Day 21

A Very Sharp Knife:

The best present you can give a cook is one great kitchen knife. But choosing a knife is very personal; everyone should really go into the shop himself, play around with the knives, pick the one that feels right.

Knife sharpeners, on the other hand, are a universal gift.  Dull knives make cooking a chore instead of a pleasure, and every kitchen needs at least one easy to use sharpener. But here’s the problem: the wrong one can ruin your knives.  The Rollsharp won’t do that – on top of being inexpensive and very easy to use. Your friend will thank you every time she slices an onion and discovers that a sharp knife means no tears.

How funny! I just wrote a post about the endless re-branding this sharpener the other day. It's actually made by Finnish brand Fiskars (flip your Rollsharp over and look for the embossed logo), and you can buy it at a number of retailers in the U.S. — including IKEA, where it costs a mere $6.99.

Here's my post, which I'll be updating shortly with a link to this post.
