Cleanup, Aisle Five

“TRY ME!” exclaims the packaging on the Anolon Santoku, exhorting the consumer to give the “Sure-Grip” a grab.

When trying out five and half inch blades in the aisles of Bed Bath and Beyond, always make sure to draw your “blood circle” by slowly moving the blade in a sphere around your body with an outstretched arm. After ensuring the blade touches nothing else, proceed to thrust and slash to your heart’s content. For their sake, just hope that no shopping carts bump into you unexpectedly.
