Well, here’s an unimpressive beginning. I wish I could say that this was a thrice-cursed demon-hunter’s dagger, but no. It’s just a bread knife.
I eat a lot of bread, you see. A good loaf of bread will carry you through the week, no problem. It won’t let you go hungry. It will tenderly sing you to sleep at night. And using a bad bread knife is like repaying a friend by hacking it into crumbling, uneven slabs that fall apart when you pick them up. Nobody would fault me for buying a new one, but right now that is sixty dollars I cannot spare.
So here I am, daydreaming about breadknives. It’s shameful, but what can I do.

I would like to see a list of your top 3 breads/loafs with pictures thereof. This is selfish and I can’t have everything.
I accept your challenge!
Give me a few weeks to collect and consume the necessary breads, and it is a done deal.
I would like to see you draw a loaf of pumpernickel and then whisper secrets to it so it would become a real loaf of bread that I could eat.
If only I had that kind of power!
Know anybody good with wood? If you google “break knife kit” you get a bunch of results that cost $20US and make lovely, dangerously-sharp knives. My dad made one twenty years ago that still cuts beautifully.
Always with the projects, you! But that is a thought, actually. My dad could no doubt handle the wood part (he’s actually a wood engineer).
A break knife is what I have right now. Turns bread into break.
A wood engineer! I need to befriend your dad!
bread, not break, dammit
