June 18 is International Picnic Day, an informal holiday on which many celebrate various occasions by eating together while enjoying outdoor scenery. Going on a picnic requires, first of all, preparing the food. Take a look at these knives made for people with hand arthritis or other hand limitations.
For many with arthritis, holding the fingers and wrist at an angle necessary to manipulate a traditional knife causes pain. Those with general hand weakness find it hard to apply enough pressure downward to cut food all the way through.
Often, the secret is to use an adaptive knife that allows you to hold the knife in a simpler fist position. This takes away the pain of holding the hand at an awkward angle and also gives more leverage to those with hand weakness.
One of the most common items of a good picnic basket is bread. If you buy fresh bread from a bakery or certain kinds of bread, such as French bread, you will need to slice it yourself. The Easi Grip Arthritis Bread Knife is perfect for this occasion.
Our Easi-Grip Carving Knife is ideal for carving the meat or poultry you wish to put on your sandwich. You could buy sliced turkey or ham, but let’s face it: That’s simply not as good. Going on a picnic isn’t an everyday occurrence, so you might as well do it right. Whether it’s a roast from the crockpot or a stuffed turkey from the oven, the Easi-Grip Carving Knife will allow you to carve like a pro.
The Easi-Grip Spatula will help you prepare hamburgers, eggs, pancakes and a multitude of other great picnicking foods.
Another kind of knife that will give you the extra leverage and grip that you require is the Vertical Grip Professional Helper Knife. It allows you hold the knife with a fist at a vertical angle, bear down pressure and simply rock back and forth. The Vertical Grip Professional Helper Knife gives you enough force to cut everything from small vegetables to thick steaks.
