There are collector knives like the Remington, Case, and Buck 100th anniversary shown on this page, and then there are your basic working stiffs like the vintage Japanese-made Heavy Royal kitchen knife pictured here with a whacked tomato (after it was sharpened with the Work Sharp 2000). The Work Sharp 2000 is the perfect tool for the guy who has a bunch of dull chisels and garden variety knives around and doesn't have the time to sharpen them all, or maybe doesn't trust his skills enough to try it. In my case I enjoy hand sharpening my collector knives, but view kitchen knives in the same light as a lawnmower, or a toilet plunger. Now that I have a Work Sharp 2000 and all of my kitchen knives are sharp enough to be used for shavers, I like kitchen knives.
