Back when I was a bachelorette the dullness of my kitchen knives was often harped upon. One friend even got me a knife sharpener for Chanukah and we got a whole pile of amazing knives as wedding gifts. My favorites are probably the ceramic knives and this one fancy Japanese knife that looks like it was forged with as much care as a samurai sword. That said, the clever we got is wonderfully effective for chopping hard squashes and I probably use our generic knives the most. The irony of today's strip is that he actual conversation it was adapted from, was even crazier. Something about about why you should give crazy people very sharp knives, because they cut cleaner and thus do less painful damage. It was not an actual conversation had with Mere, but I'm sure she'd appreciate the sentiment.
