"As children, we may have had the chance to play with molding clay and carry out our cooking masterpieces with it. Slicing and cutting with our plastic knives seemed pretty easy back then. But then as we grew older, we realized that handling kitchen knives, or any knife in general, is no child's playespecially when we end up cutting ourselves in the process of this realization. We, at Finesseur, recognize the importance of proper knowledge to practice safety and that is why we have decided to launch a guide that will help equip our consumers with the proper know-how of using their kitchen knives," Finesseur spokesperson Allison Montgomery says.

The importance of practicing safety in the kitchen can never be underestimated and left to chance. "We all know the virtue of the trial-and-error method. However, when our health and safety are involved, practicing that method may not be the best option. It is still ideal to arm oneself with proper knowledge and information in order to avoid minor and major injuries. The guide that we shall provide follows the goal and objectives we at Finesseur have set in helping promote a healthy and safe society," Montgomery explains.
