My very first non food posting! Now let me start by saying this isn’t meant to be a commercial posting or advertisement, or maybe in some way it is, I’m just not getting paid for it :)
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this is me sharing my latest purchase. With my ever expanding love for kitchen gadgets, it probably comes as no surprise I’ve been wanting a Santoku knife for quite some time now. Seriously though, having to dig up $120 (that’s what they cost overhere) for a Wusthof Santoku knife is not just taking it one, but several steps too far for me.
Then I found this beauty and fell madly, passionately, head over heels in love and immediately bought it. It’s a Santoku knife with a message ….
The terribly important message is: ‘Cook for the cure’.
Now I’m a woman. I have breasts so I, too, can fall victim to this horrible disease. Like any other woman out there reading this. So the idea of using a pink knife for my food photography and help raise awareness and funds to support the breast cancer movement that way is nothing short of fantastic. I’ll more than gladly participate, so I bought the 7″ Santoku knife.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s no Wusthof, but after using it several times I can safely say it’s a great and versatile knife with a very handy silicon non-slip handle. It gets the job done beautifully. Like the Wusthof, it also has a hollow edge - not just making it look pretty stylish but also preventing thin and soft slices from sticking to the blade.
The 7″ knife retails for $24,99 (also seen them for $20) and the 5″ retails for $14,99 which – in my very humble opinion – is a more than fair price. KitchenAid will donate 10% of the retail price for each pink Santoku Knife purchased and registered to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
