A Real Cut Above.

Watermelon has always been my favorite food.  If you leave me alone in a room with a watermelon, I will eat the whole thing.  It’s sweet, juiciness is extra special on a warm summer day.  A perfect cooling, hydrating treat!

The only issue is getting a knife through some of these suckers. Trying to cut up a watermelon can sometimes feel like a Hulk Hogan wrestling match. It’s a battle. Besides, who likes to work for their food? I don’t.

So invest in this weapon: kuhn rikon watermelon knife. It’s light as a feather and makes cutting through the toughest largest melon effortless! It has little melon seed holes on the blade that prevent the fruit from sticking as you cut. So now you can grab a great melon from the farmers market and get cutting. Only a few more weeks left of summer! Others have told me about their success with this knife on other melons such as cantaloupe, honeydew and even some winter squash as the weather turns. It's also available for purchase on Amazon and Williams and Sonoma.
