I gave my wife her first knife also recently. But knew it had to be "cute". Which meant pink.
So it was between the Squeak and the dragonfly. Nice mid-size to small, lightweight.
I choice the Dragonfly. I too got that not too excited look, and a laugh (more of chuckle).
I got the yes I will use phase once in while. It was dropped in her purse, and I have not seen or heard about it since.
Oh well.... at least we tried.
