The right tooOOool

Dad's in the kitchen, meticulously trimming the fat off a piece of meat for lunch. He's doing a remarkably precise job -- with an 18" chef's knife that'd make a fair machete.

"Bulldozer artistry," I believe it's called. Most folks'd use a five or six inch boning knife, and not do nearly as neat a job.

Ah, well. He wanted to be a brain surgeon when he was a kid, 'til he found out he was color-blind.
