Ever noticed how stubborn tomato skin can be? The solution: the tomato has its very own knife. It’s usually about 5 inches long with sharp serrations for slicing through the skin without mashing the flesh. Some versions even have a forked tip to help you maneuver slices onto your sandwich or platter. A tomato knife also works well for small breads or rolls and other slickskinned, soft-fleshed produce, like eggplant. Most major knife manufacturers offer tomato knives. We especially like the rock-and-roll look of LamsonSharp’s synthetic blue mother-of-pearl handles.
