2 Things Challenge: Round/Sharp

The 2 Things Challenge this week is Round/Sharp.
It turns out to be fairly easy to find things around the house that are round and sharp.

There's my old hunting knife, bought decades ago when I started camping and never used to gut an animal or skin out a deer.  The end of the blade is round, but it is still sharp, despite a few rust spots from all those years of laying in the toolbox in the garage.  And the point can still stab into wood and the surface can reflect a round note, in this case a D, that is also sharp.

But I also like the round grip, made from stacked pieces of leather.  Don't know why.  I just do.

And finally, even in the kitchen, round sharp things abound, especially from Pampered Chef.  There's the pizza cutter, the apple corer/sectioner, and perhaps my favorite, the pineapple peeler/corer/sectioner.  All are so sharp they need plastic covers, but that pineapple thing on the right will take your finger off if you aren't careful.  We've had to rinse the blood off a couple of pineapples.  But it works GREAT!

WE just gave my son a hatchet with a leather handle like that... we like it and more importantly... he loves it!!!

Larry, you are so professional with your photos. I love how you set up the first shot with the reflection of the music sheet in the knife blade.
And then in the second shot, how the knife is just standing there so perfectly outside with nature.
Third shot...great for a print add!

( I was thinking about taking a picture of my pizza cutter too ).

As always....great photos, Larry, and thank you so much for keeping the 2 Thing Challenge going. It's a lot of fun to see what everyone comes up with.

Terrific round and sharp photos. Vivian is right about the first knife shot. The reflection in the blade is marvelous.

Thanks to all of you.

Vivian and Susan, the reflection was a bit of luck, but I'll take luck. I just laid the music on the bench and stabbed the point as close to the D# as I could. The reflection just happened, but thanks!

Larry, shhhhh, you didn't have to tell us it was just luck. : )
besides...reflection don't just happen! lol
