Product Placement

This is the most useful Christmas gift I received last year. My parents bought it from a semi-shady knife salesman at some trade show.

It's a knife sharpening die, and it makes your knives useful again. I was sharpening my knives by hand, and even though I had extensive training in this sort of thing as a machinist, I could never get that truly wonderful edge that slices tomatoes cleanly. This little gizmo does it right every time. I still have some vestigial belief that these things should be done by hand, but I am glad to surrender my frustration to a "machine" in this case.

Here's their website, I guess they maybe aren't as shady as the guy selling the stuff seemed....


Oh, and PS - Has anyone out there ever tried a Roll N Grow?
