Have Roll, Will Travel

Dominic Armato
'Cause I need more kitchen toys, right?

In all seriousness, this is a fantastic gift. For our wedding, our good pals Doug and Rob opted to give my bride and I separate presents rather than a joint household item. So while my ladylove swoons over the Winery Dogs of Napa Valley, I'll be drooling over the most beautiful method possible for transporting my toys.

This roll will see some serious use.

Cooking in a foreign kitchen only to discover there isn't a good, sharp knife anywhere to be found is one of those silly little things that drives me to the brink of insanity. Sparse utensil drawer? Who cares. Old, beaten-up pots and pans? I'll make do. But when all of the available cutlery is either serrated or more akin to a letter opener, I die a little. Now, instead of confusing people by rifling through kitchen drawers, grunting as I reject one knife after another, I can instead scare people by taking an impressive array of honed steel with me wherever I go.

Doug, Rob, thanks... and feel free to feed my obsession anytime.
