    Every farm had an old one when I was a kid. I grew up sharpening my pocket knives, machetes and axes on ours. What surprises me too is how little they cost new.

    My grandpa had a smaller one in the shop that he mostly used to sharpen his axes.

    Salt was in general use long before history, as we know it, began to be recorded. Some 2,700 years B.C.—about 4,700 years ago—there was published in China the Peng-Tzao-Kan-Mu, probably the earliest known treatise on pharmacology. A major portion of this writing was devoted to a discussion of more than 40 kinds of salt, including descriptions of two methods of extracting salt and putting it in usable form that are amazingly similar to processes used today. Chinese folklore recounts the discovery of salt. Salt production has been important in China for two millennia or more. And the Chinese, like many other governments over time, realizing that everyone needed to consume salt, made salt taxes a major revenue source. Nomads spreading westward were known to carry salt. Egyptian art from as long ago as 1450 B.C. records salt-making.

    Every time I think I've seen most of the butcher knives used by the pros around the world, I find new one. I never saw this one in Spain so it must be something local to Madeira
