Crysknife Modification

For whatever reason, the handle of the ceramic knife extended a few millimeters below the blade heel:

Farberware ceramic knife
Farberware ceramic knife

Now it doesn’t:

Farberware ceramic knife - trimmed handle
Farberware ceramic knife – trimmed handle

Which makes it much more usable for the kind of chopping I do around here: the blade hits the cutting board squarely, producing chunks of veggies along its entire length.

A coarse file removed most of the stub, followed with a fine file and a little sandpaper action to round the edges.

Amazingly enough, none of that fussing around touched the blade, nor did I gash myself!
