    I keep this stuff in my office. I'm a construction engineer and I can put a hurting on a knife edge. I think it's always easier to keep a blade sharp than to sharpen a very dull edge. Some quick stropping strokes on the leather gets it scary. I just use a tool sheath.

    I like that HP calculator. I have the same one; for more than 20 years now - that thing is even more reliable than a Tacoma.

    And yes, I like a sharp knife also, will have to try that emulsion.

    I bought three of those HP calcs. Hell I got one here in the tacoma world classifieds. $50.

    I ended up giving one to my college intern. She needed it.
