Born in 1991, im now almost 21 and friends around me are either engaged or getting married.
Wedding invitationals would be probably triple what i am receiving right now if i am actually living in my home country.
But some of them are my very close friends and i feel like its my duty, as a decent human being, to send them to congratulate and wish them a happy life together.
Traditionally, hard cold cash is the way to go. It also a way to help young weds like this to sustain their own life instead of living with their parents after weds.
But something change my mind yesterday when i had to go to Canadian Tire to buy some cleaning tool with my roommate: a knife.
I have always have a special thing for tools in general and sharp, very sharp tool specifically. I remember my paper knife collection back in high school and how i always carry at least 1 around when i do volunteer job for the school. You never know when will your scouting skill will come in handy in volunteer jobs .
But yeah, a knife, or a knifes set. Kitchen knife of course.
I did my research few years ago when i started living by myself: Santoku Japanese made knife is the best multi purpose knife and should be the best candidate for me to purchase for myself as well as for my friend. This summer i will be working really hard, saving up a bunch for 1.
Mean while i need to do some research on where to buy it from and the expected price range. And no, i will not sell my organs just to buy a knife so it better be affordable. (hehehe)
Anyway, if you guys have any knowledge about Santoku or just kitchen knife in general, please do share.
Peace and love
