Mine were shamefully dull
I haven't done much cooking in the last five years or so, but I'm getting interested in it again. And tools are important. (And it's reeeaaalllly cool to be able to sharpen your own knives.)
And my sweet daughter ate generous (well for her) amounts of paprika, carrots and cucumber tonight, because of my cutting (-> small French fries).
What kind of cutting boards do you prefer, fg? I used to have a wood one, but I got lazy and started using plastic boards.
