Since we’re in the heart of Dexter Week here on GeekAlerts, you probably think these Dexter DuoGlide Kitchen Knives are a tie-in with the TV show. After all, these do look like the type of knives the serial killer, Dexter Morgan, keeps in his kit. Pick up a few of these knives, some plastic sheets, duct tape, and a few syringes loaded with M-99 etorphine hydrochloride, and you can have a complete kill kit.
But alas, these kitchen knives actually have nothing to do with the show. I guess it makes sense, since who wants to cut up food with serial killer knives. (Except for me, dammit!) However, besides for having a cool name and sleek looks, these Dexter DuoGlide kitchen knives are actually loaded with features that make them fantastic for the home chef.
The stain-free blades are made of high carbon steel for maximum corrosion resistance, with an edge that is individually ground and honed to the ultimate edge. Handles offer a soft-touch textured grip, which seals directly to the blade so there isn’t a gap where blood evidence (ahem I mean bacteria) can collect. (You wouldn’t want to get
caught sick, now would you?) Dexter DouGlide knives are made in the USA and come with an Ease-of-Use commendation from the Arthritis Foundation.
