One at our house and one at theirs. Guess which one gets used more often...
Dan, I wish you wouldn't pose questions that are so difficult to answer. I missed my nap trying to figure this out.

Try one of the Indian reserves. They may still have one kicking around from the good old days.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I hope you didn't think you were alone with this...

Gonna give'em a sharpening cube for Christmas...at least I won't have to carry my stuff...

You didn't happen to show them how to use a steel, did you...?
