    Don't you hate it when...

    You have no knives to sharpen!!!! So today is my day off and for some strange reason I enjoy sharpening knives (I know you guys will understand). I brought three knives home but two only needed to be touched up and I sharpened the other one in no time. ***!!! All of my knives at home are sharpened and I really can not justify grinding away steel just because I want to sharpen.

    This sucks

    Maybe it is time to start a new sharpening project.

    If you weren't 6,000 miles away I would have a few projects for you...

    And I would gladly accept, I am seriously considering taking my gear to the restaurant to sharpen everyones gear one of these days (yes I am insane). But at the same time if I do it for them once maybe it will get them to take more interest in it themselves. Most of my guys sharpen but maybe one or two can do it well.

    Don't you have some nice neighbor ladies who would enjoy having their edges honed?

    +1. You might end up doing what you love for a living. I heard many a pilot tell me that they "get paid to do what they'd pay to do--if they weren't getting paid to do it".

    I know the problem... You simply don't have enough knives! Might I suggest a solution... :-)

    Ha ha. Suppose you will just have to take care of the neighbor ladies then. They like their edges real keen if you know what I mean.
    Um, that was kinda dumb... Duh
