    I grew some Gold Nugget pumpkins. These haven't been the sweetest pumpkins I've ever eaten, but they are good enough. I like them because they keep well (five months so far), and they grow a bit like a zucchini.... the plant is more of a bush than a heap of rambling vines... which is good when garden space is limited. However.... they have very hard skins and you have to be careful when you cut them up. They are no match for a big Becker though:

    Taking the ramp off of my BK9, this Spring, made a great knife even better.

    Nice lookin nine.
    The Bk9 is a pleasure to use.
    Works well for large and small tasks alike.

    You just gave me an idea that I should have thought of myself. Spaghetti squash is another tough to cut vegetable. I've struggled with the regular kitchen chef's knife and have been concerned about not being in total control of the knife when messing with them. I'll bet the 9 will make quick work of it. I'll be using the King the next time, for sure.
