I just spent the latter half of my lunch hour fixing up the edge on my cleaver. My day work is in an office and I had a presentation this morning, so I'm wearing a shirt & tie today. However, I *do* have a cooking class tonight and I discovered a chip in the edge of my cleaver yesterday.
I didn't have time to hit the stones last night, so I had "no choice" but to bring a few stones in with me to fix things up. Rolled up my sleeves and just got to it.
Does sharpening while wearing a shirt and tie count as totally knutty or perfectly reasonable?
BTW, I'm not done yet. I'm going to finish things off with a higher-grit stone in the lab kitchen before class starts this evening
