WE feel that it’s always best to use the right tool for the right job. That’s why we use a machete to top-and-tail beans and a Samurai Sword when dicing onions.


13-year-old Ren gets where we’re coming from. That’s why he used a 20cm long knife to peel an apple. And then stab himself in the face.


Ren was walking around his house in Zhumadian, in central China’s Henan Province, when he slipped and plunged the knife through his cheek, just under his eye. Amazingly the knife was embedded 7cm into his head but missed both his eye and brain.


After a successful operation to remove the knife, surgeons assured the boy that he should make a full recovery.


Lucky for some. We still have a jousting stick in our chest from a nasty potato mashing incident.
