Your husband must feel you two are really in love if he feels safe buying you a knife!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Congratulations.

Congrats!<br><br><br><br>
One of our wedding gifts we wanted was a nice set of knives, we never got them. I'm happy you got your knife, it sure makes preparing food alot easier.

Keep the edge of that chef's knife protected! To make a wooden sheath for it just take 2 pieces of wood, chisel out a space for the knife in one (or both) of them, and glue them together. You will be mostly drying the knife before putting it away so ordinary water-resistant glue carpenters glue is fine; you don't need water-proof glue. Or you could just drill holes thru the 2 pieces and put threaded fasterners thru the hole, making sure they will be far away enough from the knife blade area so as to avoid contact with it.<br><br><br><br>
All you need to sharpen it is a hardware-store whetstone for $1.79 US and some light machine oil (like 3-in1 oil or sewing machine oil). Don't use an electric sharpener, they take off too much metal. You want to take off just enough to restore the edge, and no more.<br><br><br><br>
Those steel-rod edge-workers are unnecessary.

Kreeli,<br><br>
It's awesome that you've been married six years! I'm glad you're "keeping on keeping on". May the next six be better than the first. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I was talking to Kreeli, Spud. I should have clarified. On the other hand... maybe Kreeli did/gave some unmentionable stuff, too.

... chances are, with the time space continuum working as it does, you wouldn't have been able to say that before now anyway! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
Unless you meant that you could say it before because you didn't KNOW how long Kreeli'd been married...<br><br><br><br><br><br>
(I'm just thinking of the times I've heard little kids say that when they grow up, the wanna be older than their big brother/sister... equally unlikely!)<br><br><br><br>
Congrats, Kreeli-boo! And congratulations on the knife too. Cause as we all know, the secret to a happy marriage is loading the wife up with an arsenal of deadly weapons.<br><br><br><br>
Wow. I should put that on a Hallmark card.
