        Comments about UncommonGoods Balancing Knife:

        Every morning, husband makes sandwiches to take to work for lunch. He usually leaves the knife on the table where he prepares the sandwiches, so he can use it the next day (after wiping/rinsing it off of course). Although this isn't a "problem," I thought it would be fun for him to have his own knife for sandwich making, and it is kinda cool the way it stands up. Also, he doesn't have to worry about finding a napkin or a plate to set it on so he doesn't get humus on the table. He makes his lunch before 6 am and before coffee, so anything that streamlines the process is appreciated.

        It should be noted that this isn't technically a knife, since the edges are smooth and not serrated. It really is a spreader. It might cut through soft bread, but probably not the crust.

              I put this next to my butter dish. I love that the butter on the knife doesn't mess up my tablecloth. It's so clever! Happy I found this product. I bought 3!

                Comments about UncommonGoods Balancing Knife:

                I keep my knife on the counter, ready for use. I find that everyday there are times I reach for this knife, use it, quickly wash it and set up for the next time I am spreading butter, jelly, cheese or peanut butter. It saves on many knives getting piled up in the dishwasher after a single use. While being used, the standing function eliminates messes on the table or countertop. It is a great concept. I have given these as hostess gifts and have one for myself.

                    Great knife. My mother likes nice sit down dinners but the butter knife always ends up falling off the side of dish onto the table cloth not anymore great little gadget. And I think it would be awesome for the mayo jar at the picnic table.
