Christmas market first buy

Today we went to the market during lunch break. Had a nice little salmon bread, just shredded grilled salmon on a nice ciabatta bread roll with a little cream-mustard dressing and some salad. The salmon was grilled near the open fire, attached at wooden boards. After drinking one cup mulled wine for children (in fact very delicious hot norwegian berry juice mixed with tea - not too sweet, no alcohol) we went on a little stroll and there, in a kitchen tool stall, I found my first bargain:

Just a small very traditional kitchen knife (Windmühle/Windmill, Herder, Solingen, carbon steel) - reasonable price, fabulous. My friend took one too. And nearby was a stall with wind chimes and window decorations. I found a really funny and pretty chime made of small porcellain cups, teapots, spoons and forks (sounds weired) but it was too crowded, no chance to buy something. Have to come visit again.


Hiroyuki hat gesagt…

Your new knife, with an inwardly curved blade, looks very interesting to the Japanese. (I first thought it was a knife for mushroom hunting.)

Fräulein Trude hat gesagt…

Yes, it is beak shaped, very similiar to the mushroom knife. The blade of the mushroom knife is a little bit smaller. Very good for peeling potatoes. It is a knife to dress our typical vegetables.
