To be honest, I am using the oldest paring knife in history. I have no idea just how old it is, but I can't remember when or where I bought it. All I know is that I'm comfortable with it. It doesn't scare me and just looking at new ones in the cooking shops... well they scare me. With my old one, I know what it can do. I have been using it for years and years!!
Does that make me crazy?? I'm sure that some of you will say Heck Yes! Go out and buy a new one.
