Last week, I had an unfortunate incident involving a stale bagel, a bread knife and my finger. After speeding to Gannett with my bloody hand held out the window, upon arrival and examination I received great news — my cut was so clean, I could get “glued” instead of stitched. With a general dislike of needles, and a childhood fondness for Elmer’s, I was ecstatic (until, of course, I remembered how much pain I was in). The reason for such a clean cut? The quality of the bread knife culprit. Part of my 18-piece J.A. Henckels Twin Pro S block set, my knife was so sharp and such high quality that I didn’t even need stitches. The knives cut through vegetables and meat as well as they cut through my finger, though I don’t recommend trying to slice a stale bagel.
