Dull knives will ruin you
Don't expect to be an expert with a knife without hours of repetition, but even a master chef will be crippled by dull knives. Every adult should own a knife sharpener, it will be the best $12 you ever spend.

Instead of slicing each tomato (or grape!) individually, put a layer of them between two Tupperware lids. Lightly press down on the top lid, then slice horizontally to halve the tomatoes in one clean cut.
