donated tons of money to a political candidate who embodies everything I'm against. I'm the type of girl who doesn't shop at Wal-Mart for political reasons, so I feel like a dirty hypocrite every time I walk into a Target. But morals and values be damned! I have to get my paper towels, TP, and other every day essentials from some place, and that place is Target.
When I was wandering around Target the other day, I noticed all these relatively cheap, very bright knives hanging from the wall. They're made by a company called Tomodachi, and they have several different options to choose from: a green 7" Santoku, a 4" red tomato knife, an orange 6" all-purpose knife, etc.
They knives so cute and so inexpensive that I picked one up--the green 7" Santoku. Because really? Who couldn't use another knife? And for $7.99? Yup--I'm sold.
I've used the bright green knife a few times now and it's not half bad. It's easy to use--the knife is very lightweight and the handle, though nothing to write home about, is comfortable to grip. The blade does a nice job of cutting through whatever I'm chopping. And best of all it can be tossed into the dishwasher. Yay!
We'll see how this knife does in the long run. I'm not sure how it will do when I need to sharpen it, but for now, it's pretty darn good! Plus it's so easy to find in my unorganized tool drawer thanks to it's stand-out color. Because it comes with a blade guard, I can just toss the little cheap-y into said junk drawer and not worry about it getting damaged.
So far, this is a thumbs up. Like I said, it will be interesting to see how it stands up to the test of time.
