The Best Product in the World Rikard Edgren

I recently acquired the best product in the world, for me.
It is a Victorinox serrated multi-purpose chef’s knife that I use to slice bread.
In 2000, chefs around the world voted it as the best knife in the world.
I want to go one step further, and name it the best product in the world, all categories.
Some people say that if you go to a restaurant, and they don’t have this knife anywhere, you might as well leave at once.

The Best Product in the World

When I use the knife it has an incomparable feeling when it cuts through the hardest crust of a sourdough bread. There is an ease in its operation that brings well-being.
It might have drawbacks I haven’t noticed yet, but with this 100% Charisma I don’t really care, I could slice bread for days.

So what kind of charisma does your product have?
Can you test for this and make suggestions for improvements?

The best product in the world, in all categories is a *bread knife* ?

What if I don’t cut very much bread? Is this still the best product?

Perfect example of the falacy of best practises. Good catch Rikard.

I recently acquired the best product in the world, *for me*.

*for me* = The context required to dispute the ‘best practice’ flavour.

Well done!

I did not intend this post as against something, but it is refreshing with other interpretations.

The knife might not be the most important product in my life, but I wanted to highlight the subjectivity in loving a product. This is applicable for software too, but requires unorthodox approaches for implementation and testing.

The post has been a draft for a year, and the most compelling reason for publishing was that I recently acquired a MoccaMaster coffee machine, which has equal charisma, but in a more complex way…

I just ordered one. If it the best product in the world for you – it will proably be at least good enough for me 🙂

Good choice, Tobbe!
In case you hear rumors that I get provision for this; they are false.
