I got my knives today, wrapped in a Chinese newspaper that was obviously the wedding announcements and personal ads. Like I suspected, one reason they were so much cheaper from the place I ordered is that they were not in individual blister packs. Fine with me. Two of the knives were a touch smaller than I expected because the shape matched one I had, but apparently I had the larger size of that knife. Fine with me, I have four new kitchen knives that tightly fit onto the magnetic holders. I may have to get a new one, or retire two of the really cheap ones that aren't worth the trouble.

The edges were very sharp, but with a couple of minor burrs, and the comb of the edge was laid over to the side on some. So I ran them through my new sharpener, which cleaned up the edge nicely.

So now I'm on the second of three dozen bagels. I'll need to modify the recipe to make about 1/4 less so the dough kneads better in this mixer, or just wait until the 600 comes back in a couple of weeks.

Nice. Definitely worth the price then, and a great way to end the year.

More like I got spoiled by my machine. But I'll be able to make household bread until my toy comes back, so no twitching from nervous energy usually spent baking.
