A sharp knife I can use?

(1/1)

RoseRodent:
Has anyone seen any sharp knives which are accessible for disabled users? I have a few special knives which don't hurt my hands as badly, but every single one of them is practically a butter knife. I have a bread knife which I can use, but anything like a steak knife is hard to get accessible versions. I presume they think if you need a special grip then you shouldn't have a sharp knife, but of course a blunt knife is a dreadful danger. I can't just use Fimo and similar craft materials to mould it like I often do, as it needs to be properly sealed and washable to keep it clean. Anyone know either a place I can get a sharp knife with a secure built up handle with finger holds and possibly even a strap to keep it in my hand, or a craft material which moulds easily, hardens without excessive heat, will then be waterproof but isn't terribly expensive. Sugru is great, but enough of it to build up a knife handle would be about 50!

Good link tah  >thumbsup<

I have a Reflex Slicing Knife and use it for slicing bread. The slice I get is much better than with and ordinary knife and the remain loaf does not get squished so much.

Those seem like good designs.

Did you get any of those to cut? I've owned about half of them, one fell apart, another broken when I dropped it, the rest I could ride bare bum to Newcastle without injury! I think that use "chef knife" as an indicator of shape and size rather than an indicator you can chef with it. Very disappointing.
