Psycho Knife

For kitchen use only

Inside the handle of a large chef's knife lie an accelerometer, mirocontroller, and miniature audio player. When a series of stabbing motions are detected by the accelerometer, sounds of falling water and screeching violins play through a small hermetically sealed speaker.

Power consumption is low, and can be provided by a supercapacitor. The blade is inductively charged when placed in the knife block, making it completely waterproof and zero-maintenance.

       No, it's one of those infomercial knives that are "Guaranteed to Never Need Sharpening!"
Btw, I don't find my-elf using many stabbing motions while cutting in the kitchen...

       I always use a hammer for that. Is that somehow wrong?
