Will it cut?

    Will the little plastic knife have to call on the reinforcement knife lurking in the background?

      interesting knife, great shot!

      what is the knife and where did you get it?

      It's a Zyliss 'salad knife' - I think the idea is that if you cut your salad with plastic the lettuce won't react to the metal and turn brown. I snagged it at a kitchen store because I am looking for kid-safe tools and wondered if it would work to cut veggies but not fingers. Seems to work fairly well if you aren't after perfect, pretty pieces.

      so how did it work out regarding fingers..?

      Refused to make more than a minor 'dent' in my skin. My guess is that a dedicated kid could do damage to themselves (or a sibling) but slipping and slicing yourself would be nigh on impossible. It actually seems like a great learning tool for kids.
