My top brands for the best knife

The major question here is what makes for the best knife set? All brands will offer you the basic requirement, the variety that allows for versatility but, do they give you quality? Having a vast experience with knives by quality I mean, balance, heft, and ability to maintain sharpness. Do you think it is easy to choose the best knives? Before you say yes I would like to warn you that you will end up with a dozen set of useless knives. You will live to see some lost bucks that you would have put to better use had you taken my advice on the best knife and where to get them.


My top brands for the top knife sets are MAC and Chicago cutlery. These two manufacturers are driven by being the best manufacturers the world over. I have to say their sales managers are brilliant guys. Despite the world class quality of the knives, we get them at reasonable prices. They say you get what you pay for, with MAC and Chicago cutlery you get more than you bargain for.

The knife blades balance incredibly well and do much good on keeping the fatigue rate of chefs like my wife on the down low. She says they cut through anything like butter and I cannot agree more thanks to the thin blades design. The knives feature ergonomic handle design that will not hurt even after hours of use.

Sharpening and maintaining sharpness are things that determine the value a knife will give you. Anyone can do the sharpening, but be careful it gets sharp fast, and you will not have to worry about sharpening it anytime soon.

I am not making this a battle. I am just conveying the facts as they are to you. Once you get your knife sets from MAC and Chicago cutlery, you will enjoy excellent cutting for years. May it be for a restaurant or use at home, these two manufacturers have got your back and for a long time.

It’s time for working women to lead our political debate

International Women’s Day 2017 takes place in the context of worldwide attempts to hold back the progressive rise of women in the world of work and in civil society.

Reactionary backlash on women’s rights at work and at home is now ideologically fashionable. It is time for a new vision for women workers to meet the challenges of 2017 and beyond.

We need to articulate a compelling egalitarian vision of working life, a fresh social and economic deal at work and in wider society to appeal the rising generation of young women workers. In order to do this, working class women need to be leading political debate. Working women’s concerns should be at the heart of Labour’s future direction.

unionstogether represents all the unions affiliated to the Labour Party and we are determined to play our part in ensuring that trade union women’s voices are heard in the Party, and that women’s political leadership is advanced.

This week is the annual TUC Women’s Conference, where the issues for working women organised in trade unions are debated by hundreds of women delegates from all parts of the workforce. Prominent on the agenda are the effects of a Conservative government still pursuing the failed policies of austerity, the abysmal failure of this Government’s industrial strategy, the lack of public investment in infrastructure and the wider economy, and the drastic and destructive cuts to public services.

Women trade unionists are fighting back against the deliberate underfunding of the NHS, and social care by this Tory government. These cuts fall disproportionately on women both as workers and carers as a shrunken state withdraws.

The Conservatives’ Trade Union Act 2016 was designed deliberately to frustrate union organisation, workplace representation and working people’s political voice. The need for workplace trade union organisation is nowhere more obvious than in new sectors of the economy. At the conference we will be discussing how many young women workers in the ‘gig economy’, other casual or temporary work are denied the employment rights they need, and denied workplace justice.

The glaring injustices of the gender pay gap and maternity discrimination persist, with Brexit threatening the many progressive gains inherited from European legislation that make all the difference in integrating work and home life.

Ongoing sexism is backed up by harassment in the workplace as the TUC survey ‘Still just a bit of banter?’ showed. This harassment reinforces already existing gender job segregation. Significant areas of the economy are, in effect, no go areas for working women. Girls and young women are still consistently discouraged from pursuing work in tech, in science, and in the skilled manual trades. New apprenticeship starts are still overwhelmingly focused on traditional gender roles.

The TUC Women’s Conference is also discussing the worldwide situation for women, including the dangers to our rights from the election of President Trump and the march of right wing populism across Europe. We will be restating the importance of ending violence against women and girls and challenging the revival of patriarchal assumptions including such things as the outrageous decriminalisation of domestic violence in Russia.

We know the  Conservatives only ever concede  women’s equality as far as this suits their minimalist agenda. And accompanying any concession made will be desperate ideological attempts to culturally neutralise the challenge to the status quo that women’s empowerment brings. Working women look to Labour to advance our interests, industrially and politically. (Read the full post)
