nchanter If you keep on doing that you'll drive yourself insane
marphod That assumes facts not in evidence
nchanter You mean that you're sane?
marphod Yes. Dude, I gave you a bouquet of knives.
nchanter So?
marphod Dude, I gave you a bouquet of Knives

Dude, he gave me a bouquet of knives*. It's pretty.

*kitchen knives. And a sharpener thingy and a micro-plane. Wrapped in tissue paper to look like flowers. In a vase

I totally hate my knives. Moreover, he hates my knives, and doesn't want to have to bring his kitchen knives anytime he might have to cook at my place. And while, ack, he bought me good knives... I needed them.

See, after Monster ate the last batch, I've been banned giving nchanter flowers.

And her kitchen knives were awful. (Stamped -- which isn't a flaw in and of itself but unless you're getting Chicago Cutlery's higher end there are few good stamped producers out there, light-weight and thin steel, 'always-sharp' serated, cheap lightweight handles, maybe 1/4 tang.)

They are a 8 knife/10 piece set from Henckel's 'Classic' line.

Machine forged (as opposed to hand-forged, unlike the Henckel's 'Twin Select' and 'professional "S"' line), but good weight, high quality steel, full tang. Its a nice set.

Yay, yay, yay, happy, happy, happy!

I had forgotten to ask yet how they were received.

Did you call him a dork? He was sure he was going to get called a dork.

I thought they were adorable.

I didn't call him a dork. I called him something else. He was surprised I didn't call him a dork. I cannot for the life of me remember what I called him though.

And they are adorable. Just, you know, he got me knives. His constant protests saying he doesn't want to be stabbed are clearly false.

That's really cool, although you really oughtn't sharpen your own knives. Actual sharpening requires serious machinery, and the do-it-at-home products don't *ahem* cut it. Honing, on the other hand, you should do every time you use a knife, if you can.
