May I vent for a moment? :mad:
I was in one of the fancy kitchenware stores and asked to see a particular knife. Salesperson had to take it out of the locked case. So far, no problem. But then when I reached for an apple that had been used for a demo, I was told, "You can't actually CUT with that knife, now! Then we couldn't sell it." Turns out that they would consider it used, and not fit for sale. :crazy:
Now, I ask you: how can I tell if the knife is right for me if I can't try it out? As people will notice if they read through the threads here, I believe that the most important aspect of a knife is how it feels to me. I don't care if its Global, or Wusthof, or Sabatier, or Henckel, or Furi -- I've got knives from all of those manufacturers, and others -- if it doesn't feel right in my hand, I'm not buying.
Stupid store. :mad:
