Knife Sharpening Information and Equipment

“No man should be without a pocket-knife, preferably gold-handled.  How else would you peel an orange, or cut a sprig of privet blossom for your second youngest daughter?  A blunt knife was not just a bad way to hurt an onion, but a sacrilege to God’s creation, its beauty and its excellence.” – Robert Capon, priest, theologian and food writer.

"RAZOR EDGE BOOK OF SHARPENING"  Why should we carry this title, when we already sell the world's greatest knife sharpening book "SHARPENING MADE EASY"? I wondered the same thing, so after a good many years, we are finally going to drop the old book.  If you have other books on knife sharpening, or if you don't but have never been happy with your efforts, may we suggest Steve Bottorff's $9.95 masterpiece SHARPENING MADE EASY. It's a gem! Mark D. Zalesky, Editor, KNIFE WORLD
