As the paste dries, it’s molded into the shape of a knife and dried for 10 days. Once the pasta is hardened, the meticulous process of sharpening the knife begins.
He puts a handful of dried pasta into a food processor, adds some water and semolina flour, vacuum seals it all, uses a real kitchen knife as a mould and then dries the pasta knife for a week, which seems like a lot more effort than just washing up a knife, to be honest.
They then sharpen the knife as they would any other, and by the end of the process you’re left with a sharp enough knife to cut tomatoes.Not only can it be used to slice up tomatoes for a sauce, it can also be boiled and eaten as the main course.
