"Jon Freeman, your sharp knife is your safe knife, as I'm sure you know. My grandmother used to scare me blue with her horrible kitchen knife, which skittered sideways over anything that presented more resistance than a summer squash."
On knives wandering and drifting a bit off topic here and probably mentioned in relation to other topics including musical ones on instrument playing is that I’m a sort of adapted left hander.
I eat (and try to play fretted stringed instruments) right handed but preparing food and slicing bread are left handed tasks. That said, I really struggled with and scrapped a left handed serrated knife I got thinking it might help me cut better. It seems that over many years, I developed a way of resisting the bias that some tools have for right handers and I was all over the place with the left handed special.
