My New Weapon

25 Jan

I have a new weapon of mass destruction!…or as you may call it, a new kitchen knife. 😛

Safeway has been running this promotion where every $10 you spend you get a sticker, if you save enough stickers you get a knife. Depending on how many stickers you save up will decide which of the knives you can choose from.

These are your choices…

When the promotion started I decided if I was going to try to get enough stickers to get a knife then I was going to go for the most expensive knife on the list lol I also realized very early on there was almost no way in hell I’d be able to save enough stickers for the knife I wanted as it needed 150 stickers. That’s a lot of money!

Luckily my mom wasn’t collecting the stickers so she saved the ones she earned and gave them to me. With her contribution to my collection I actually managed to get enough stickers to earn the Chef’s Knife. 🙂

So many stickers!

So many stickers!

It’s not like I actually need a fancy new kitchen knife, my cooking doesn’t warrant impressive tools lol but if I was spending the money anyways I might as well try for a knife that is out of my price range, right? Right!

If I had wanted I could have used my 150 stickers to go towards a knife sharpener or a knife block. I would have had to pay an additional amount for either of those items but I didn’t really want either of them so no temptation there, shrug.

So since I know you are all just dying to see it, here is my new kitchen knife…

According to the packaging it is a German Five Star Zwilling Knife. It is stainless steel, ice hardened, forged from one piece, has a hand guard and has a handle made of synthetic material. None of that really means anything to me but maybe it does to you? 🙂

I have absolutely no idea what I am going to use the knife for, I don’t do a lot of chopping or cutting but maybe now I will, if only to use this fancy-dancy knife lol 😛 Look out veggies and meat, here I come! (insert evil laugh here)
