and flimsy. Not these! Swiss made and machined well from heavy stainless
steel stock, they are large, sturdy and lend a firm grip. Handy for
bottom fishing in near empty jars of cocktail onions or cornichons;
for moving shrimp around a hot skillet; for turning lardons of bacon
that won’t flip, or grabbing a single strand of fettuccini from the
pot to check for doneness. With a rag in its grip, cleaning the iced
tea container or the humming bird feeder is a breeze. A.G. Russell,
a fine knife Web retailer, has them for about $18US at www.agrussell.com.
