DaninVan Nope. Not even sure they have one, Nick. (I'd have to actually empty the knife drawer...)

You can't even slice a tomato with them! *Grrrrrr*

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...?

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

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.

dexcraft Place the flat side of the bit, not the edge, on the sharpener, and move the bit forward and back.

DaninVan I'm trying to picture a blade that I'd use for chopping that doesn't have the blade exposed it's whole length(?).
I usually use what I think is called a Chef's knife...about 1 1/2" across and maybe 8"-12" long.
