Hard and Sharp

Let's take a moment to talk about knives. Daniel used his personal carving set from Asprey, made in 1917. Even if you don't have 100-year-old knives with horn handles, we're betting you can find a stiff, sharp blade like the ones pictured here. The softer and duller the knife is, the less precise your cuts and the likelier you are to make a mess of things.
