Oct 26th 2009 7:10PM Agreed on use of the knife above all other tools. A little training and people can learn to use an 8 inch chef's knife for most any cutting task in the kitchen. Although the 8 inch knife from Global in the demonstration actually costs about $130, this is a quality tool that is worth splurging on. However, I recommend the Wusthof classic line for its weight, balance and high carbon steel.
Knife sharpening should be done 1 or 2 times a year, easily with a 2 stage sharpener for about $20. http://www.cookswarehouse.com/productcart/pc/W%C3%BCsthof-2-Stage-Knife-Sharpener-21p1224.htm
Sep 21st 2009 3:28PM I agree with Ariel that this watch has mechanical appeal, and it does have some innovative qualities in its automatic movement. But I also would have appreciated the incorporation of what made the Monaco famous (even before McQueen) - undoubtedly the design of an automatic chronograph in skeleton form.
Many people don't know that the original Monaco was the first ever automatic chronograph watch. Though I would agree chronograph dials would appear a little crowded in this design, an homage to such an influential watch requires a little more attention to its historical roots in my opinion.
