You can tell a lot about a person from how they hold a knife.
There are those who wave the knife around as they talk. An accident may happen, but you shouldn’t worry about these people.
Others use unnecessary force, they really put their whole body into chopping food. Again you don’t need to worry too much about these people. Just be careful not to make them angry, they might snap.
Smart cooks always use a sharp knife, they slice and dice with smooth movements and precise accuracy. They respect their tools and know how to clean and care for them. There is nothing to worry about here.
But some, like me, sharpen our knifes constantly, we clean them rigorously and we use them professionally. However, when we slice, we slice for pleasure. The knife becomes an extension of ourselves and we know exactly where it will hurt the most.
I’m the one you should fear.
