You know that feeling when you put on your favorite outfit. The one that you KNOW makes you look and feel like a 10! That’s how I feel about my chef knife!
It’s such a simple and lightweight tool that its kinda funny really. Second in my list of most valuable are chopsticks but let’s not go there.
The knife that I am absolutely in love with right now is actually a stainless steel Daiso knife. What is Daiso you ask? Daiso is only the best freaking place in the world! It’s my disneyland for all things that I didn’t even know that I needed! And here is the kicker! Most of the items are only $1.50 each! Dollar fifty? Who cares we have dollar stores all over the place but WAIT! This brightly lit store is filled with items worth soooo much more! Everything from gardening tools to stationary and cooking pieces!!!
If you’ve never been to Daiso it could best be described as a Japanese Dollar store. And this is where I purchased my absolute favorite knife! Not only is it suuuper sharp but it is the perfect weight for my cooking needs. I know what you’re thinking… chef knives should be heavy duty and strong but don’t underestimate the power of this little tool! Every day chopping and dicing are made effortless because of this little baby! And it’s so cheap you could almost treat it like a disposable… Almost.
For me I try to keep an extra knife hidden away somewhere just in case something does happen to my precious Daiso knife but so far I have only had to replace it ONCE in the course of a couple years after daily use. Not bad for a $1.50 right?
