As a newly single man, I’ve been continually surprised by the fact women are incredibly impressed by my ability to cook. I thought it was an old joke, something from a cheesy rom-com, but the truth remains I’ve found the ability to cook directly relates to your attractiveness level. When cooking for a young lady part of the draw is your skill when it comes to preparation. Cutting, seasoning, prepping the grill, and more is all part of the experience, and you are only as good as your tools. If you are only as good as your tools, then you can be very good when wielding the Half-Face Blades Chef Blade.
A high-quality chef’s knife is an absolute must-have. Not just for the sake of having it, but for your overall safety. A high-quality blade is made evenly, is extremely balanced, and the blade is equal throughout its entire edge. This is for your standard nice cutting quality, but its also for safety purposes. These knives chew through meat, and you are made of meat. A lower quality knife doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t chew through you. The higher quality the knife, the better the cut, and the safer the knife is overall. Same thing with bits and endmills, if they are sharp they are less likely to jump and hurt you. In this case, you ruining your hand, not an 80 lower jig.
