Who's using a counter puppy? I can't pull the trigger because pricing seems way off to me when z cuts are so affordable, USA made and better steel.
Anyone have both for comparison pics?
Here are the two together. I find that the thinner steel on the Z-Cut doesn’t work as well as the Counter Puppy on “firm” food, e.g. whole onions or apples. The blade bends, twists, and wanders. It works well on less firm food like tomatoes or food thats already been sliced down. It’s doable, but you need to pay attention to get a straight cut. The Counter Puppy works much better in this respect.
I wish the handle on the Counter Puppy was a bit longer, but then this isn’t a hard use knife where it requires a firm grip. On the plus side they work well packing one in a cooler/lunchbox when you’re on the go. I’ll definitely be on the look out for the newer sizes Sal mentioned.
I’ve given a couple of the Counter Puppy’s to friends and they really like them. They like how the legs keep the blade off of the cutting surfaces. One couple uses theirs in the kitchen and the other coworker will toss hers in the soft cooler for use at lunchtime.
