Top Chef: Knife Labeler

Yesterday as I was watching Top Chef, it occurred to me that there must be somebody—a lowly PA, no doubt—who arranges the stickers on the knives.

I want to be that person. I want to arrange the stickers on the knives. I would work really hard to align them and space them evenly. I would even pre-measure.

Of course, the person who does it probably slaps the stickers on in a stolen five-minute panic between straightening the Glad bags in the pantry and fluffing the pillows on Padma’s special judging chair.

In related news, don’t you love how the contestants always hold the knives face-out, between two fingers, to show the camera which they drew? Do they do that automatically, or are they coached? I think I would do it automatically. It just feels so right.

    Our co. designs and manufactures the Top Chef knives. Maybe we should make some w/ labels – evenly spaced of course.
