Tomato sandwiches are one of the highlights of summer for me. Tomatoes, vine-ripened on an organic farm or backyard garden, on homemade white bread. With nothing but a bit of mayonnaise, salt and coarsely ground black pepper. Yes, I love whole grain bread and sourdough, but their flavors might be too strong for what I call my Purist's Tomato Sandwich.
Like all WÜSTHOF Classic knives, it has an extremely sharp blade with exceptionally long edge retention. And the handle just feels "right" in my hand. This knife is going to get a lot of use in my kitchen and out--it is my new, best ever, picnic knife!
And they're going to send one to one of you! See entry details below. Please leave a comment for me about tea sandwiches, knives or whatever this post brought to mind.
