If you’ve ever tried to eat a grapefruit with an ordinary knife, chances are you might have gotten a little frustrated. Unless, of course, your grapefruits are always perfectly ripe, or you just happen to be one lucky son of a gun who gets everything right the first time.
But that’s not a problem if you have a grapefruit knife. These knives are usually quite inexpensive to get, and invaluable to have if you plan on purchasing more than 3 grapefruits within the course of your lifetime.
Norpro’s version of a grapefruit knife isn’t a bad choice at all. In fact, it’s two knives in one. The wooden handle in the middle separates both blades, so when you’re working on that stubborn grapefruit, all you have to do is flip the knife around in your hand from time to time and you’re good to go.
This dual-blade design is uniquely patented by Norpro. One side of the handle features a serrated blade. This takes care of getting that tasty piece of grapefruit away from the rind. The other side features a double-edged plain knife that separates the membranes.
The metalwork is made entirely from genuine stainless steel, and the handle in the middle is made from durable hardwood. Two metal bolsters secure the handle in place. All components are dishwasher safe, but make sure that you still treat the wooden handle with care.
Looks like Norpro has provided a great option to make sure you never have to hassle a grapefruit again. And for that price, it’s definitely worth it.
