The grapefruit knife is a one-trick pony of such economic utility that once you've used it, you'll wonder how you ever managed life without it.

A grapefruit knife is a little larger than your average paring knife, about the size of a butter knife. The blade is double-serrated; the last couple inches or so are gently curved. It is this curve that gives the grapefruit knife its awesome power to efficiently section a grapefruit, making eating your breakfast citrus a joy instead of a chore.

How to use a grapefruit knife:

  1. Using a kitchen knife, slice your grapefruit in half along its equator.
  2. Run the grapefruit knife all the way around the grapefruit half between the rind and the sweet succulent juicy pulp.
  3. Slide the grapefruit knife between the membrane and pulp of each individual section.
  4. Serve.
  5. Enjoy.
  6. Marvel in the wonder of the grapefruit knife.
