When I was about 10, my dad took all of our kitchen knives to the guy who had also done the local hospital's honing. Think scalpels. We went through a lot of Band-aids over the next couple of weeks. In other news, I just picked up the Gatco 4-diamond sharpening system off of eBay for about half of what it would cost new. I've had my eye on those for a while. Next up: Convincing Mrs. McGee that I need a WorkSharp power sharpener.
