    I decided to go with 3.5" sheepsfoot. The birds beak looks nice also. I will have to try that messermeister peeler also. Thanks again.

    k.
    Every time to topic of peeling anything comes up, I make the same recommendation, so Ill do it again,

    It's the only peeler that I know of where the blade is removable so that you can sharpen it yourself to an absurd, hair-peeling level.
    You need something narrow to sharpen it; I use edge pro stones, but wet/dry sand paper over a strip of wood would work fine too. Up to 2K is available at any auto parts store, and once it start to wear out, it actually seem to give a finer than 2k polish anyway.

    It's a little single bevel blade and while small, it's still much thicker and more rigid than any other that I've used so it doesn't stutter on tough stuff like squash. It leaves a nice sooth, almost polished look to the cut -kinda like a finishing plane.

    The only down side, as others have mentioned, is that it's not a knife. However, you can always make a custom replacement blade out of AEB-L or CMP-154 or the new X-whatever steel... yeah, the blade would cost a few times the price of the peeler, but I'd probably buy one...

    Nice, that Roesle one is going on my list. I have been reasonably happy with the Kyocera ceramic ones, but one can never have enough gadgets. BTW, where is Gator, haven't seen him around much lately?

    Why thank you.

    Heh heh heh... always fun to return the favor to the rest of the forum and post something that makes OTHER people buy more sharp things.

    Seriously though, not many times in the knife world where you can make a purchase and get the "best" of a category and only spend ~$20. I'm sure you guys will enjoy it.

    Thanks, as always, this site is an incredible resource for aspiring kitchen folk.

    edit: woops, wrong thread.

    Had mine for a couple of months now, currently hunting down a current student with my Gyuto who borrowed it one day, with my permission, but forgot to return it. This same kid lost one of the screws earlier and I had to replace it via a hardware store. If you get one, attach it to yourself.

    Once I get it back it's probably about do for a sharpening. Going to have to locate a skinny stone to do that with. Any cheap suggestions would be awesome.
