Four Knives That Save Kitchen Lives

My pharmacist recently told me to put lemon juice in my water because I need to have enough Vitamin C to keep my immune system strong through flu season.

For those of you who have had the flu, you can attest to how serious the flu is when it decides to hijack every part of your life. In fact, when we are sick, we ask for forgiveness. We plead with the universe. We make promises to ourselves of what we will do better. Do we actually do those things?

You tell me. I’m not ready to admit that!

As much as I want to drink lemon water and honor my pharmacist’s recommendation, I’m still caught by a thread of hesitation. It’s not the lemon water. It’s not the flu. It’s the knife. We all have a series of useful and not so useful knives in our kitchen drawers; some quarantine warriors even have a trusted blade sheathed and kept close to their heart under their bra. The truth is this: NO ONE learned crucial things in high school. How to file taxes? Nope. How to navigate a pandemic? Definitely not. Which knives are the best for what? We definitely weren’t taught that. If you’re like me, I look at expensive and budget-friendly knives and squint. Am I Uma Thurman from Kill Bill? No. I’m just a girl trying to find a knife for her lemon. When my pharmacist texted me to remind me to increase my intake of vitamin c through citrus-infused water, I began to question if the knives I owned would be up for the task.

My mind began to sing the ballad of lemons and knives.

And it is with great honor, I present the ballad to you:

Where does one go to buy a trusty knife?
