Using Knives This Holiday Season
Knives prove themselves useful the whole calendar year round, but perhaps no other time are they quite as useful as during the holidays. There are just so many ways one can use a renowned, custom knife during the holiday season, such as: making a fire, proving your handiness in fron of your family (especially in front of those in-laws, am I right?), cutting things up at a holiday dinner or when out to eat, preparing your family’s favorite holiday dishes and our favorite use here at Exquisite Knives, by giving a knife as a present. But let’s explore the uses just a little bit more.
As far as making a fire, its so much easier to do with a knife, especially in bad weather. Even when it’s raining or snowing, you can find dry wood upright. The knife allows you to gather said wood, prepare tinder and even to spark the first flame. If you are dreaming of having your whole family snuggling up on a winter night by the fure, you’ll want to have the optimum knife to prepare the fire, especially considering that winter is rife with inclement weather conditions.
Another use we mentioned is being handy in front of your family. The holidays always entail a million little breaks and subsequent fixes and a good knife can help you with a myriad of them. One thing our hands can’t do is cut things. That’s where a handy dandy knife comes in. With a knife you can quickly and effectively administer any and all cutting needs. You may think what does this include? But you’d be surprised at the number of pickles a knife can get you out of. A knife can help you open a blister pack or cut things when you only have one hand available, such as when you are on a ladder stringing the lights your wife told you to put up!
The next use for a knife during the holiday season is that when you’re out to dinner or at a a party, you may have cutting needs that no ordinary knife can meet. Restaurants are notorious for providing patrons with the dullest of knives, so you may want your own, especially if eating meat, such as steak. It may seem creepy to bring a knife to a restaurant, but in rural France, patrons almost always bring their own knives to restaurants, so its not actually that odd.
One of the biggest and most obvious uses for a knife during the holidays is how it can aid in the kitchen. Nothing cuts better- whether its meat, nuts, fish, fruit, veggies or something else- than a hand-crafted, custom knife. Your guests are sure to love whatever you cook up for them when you prepare the food with the optimal knife!
But our favorite use here at Exquisite Knives is gift giving. Knives make amazing gifts, especially for (other) men, who are, let’s face it, some of the trickiest people on our list, as we simply don’t know what to get for them. Well, a custom knife is a great present for male friends, male bosses, dads, brothers, uncles, you name it! Seriously, an Exquisite Knife is the perfect present.
