  • What to get Dad for Father's Day? Knives.

Men have made lots of progress in home kitchens. Once women's work, cooking has become both a leisure activity and necessity.

But what about those men-folk who are still holding out, afraid that the ability to make a pot roast will decrease penis size? Companies that make high-end kitchen gear would still like to make some money from those fellas.

Wusthof's got the right idea. They've introduced Wusthof Outdoor Collection, a new line of hunting and fishing knives, just in time for Father's Day.

Surely other purveyors of cooking gear are also looking at the manly man crossover market.
