At university, a couple of lads kept exclaiming, ‘You’ve never seen Star Wars?’ (Although, it was more along the lines of ‘You’ve never seen Staaaaaaaaaaaaaar Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaars?)’ I have no idea why they kept saying this and upon Googling, it doesn’t seem to be a thing either, so it must just be something they liked saying.
They never directed this at me; not because I have seen Star Wars but because I kept quiet about whether I’d seen it or not as I didn’t want them yelling their catchphrase at me.
I probably have seen Star Wars though, as I seem to remember someone waving some kind of light-on-a-stick thing around and I definitely remember Chewbacca and R2D2 but then again, I can name a couple of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I’ve definitely never seen that. I could probably also – at a push – name a Teletubby too.
Despite my knowledge of Star Wars being limited, I am not so completely out of the loop that I don’t know there’s a new Star Wars film coming out soon and, to tie in with this, Bluw have launched the Official Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block.
I may not know much about Star Wars (please don’t ask me how many times I’ve typed ‘Star Trek’ instead while writing this post) but this knife block pleases my inner geek. It also pleases my love of shiny things.
As you’d expect from a knife block, it contains: that knife you use for everything; the small knife you use when the knife you use for everything is in the dishwasher; a bread knife; and those two big knives I’m too scared to use.
The polished chrome effect protective sheaths feel a bit plasticy. This is probably because they’re made of plastic. The base, however, has a quality weighty feel to it and the knives themselves are sharp and, upon testing, cut through a tomato cleanly.
Star Wars lovers and geeks alike or just lovers of shiny things for the kitchen will love these knives and if you want some, you can buy the Official Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block online from Bluw (trade customers only) or Amazon (or other online retailers).
