So, marzipan - or is it marchpane? English is not my native language, but I own a cooking book where it is called marchpane - is pretty sticky, and cutting it with a normal knife doesn't really work that well. Luckily I have a marzipan knife just lying around. And it actually works.
Now I did read somewhere, that the marzipan (or fondant for that matter) doesn't stick to the knife because marzipan knives are mostly made of plastic, but that definitely isn't the reason why mine works: it's made of metal.
So what is the actual reason? Why is cutting marzipan with a normal knife so much... stickier? And while we're at it, why is the knife two-edged?
