Automatic Knife Sharpener Block

Automated appliance sharpens knives in the block

What if you had an intelligent knife block that could sharpen knives in the block? Much like a computer tape array can be programmed to erase tapes and write to tapes at specific times, the knife block could be programmed to check the blade edge once a week (or daily if you use them a whole lot) and sharpen as appropriate. No need to pull out a steel or even an electric sharpener: This device sharpens perfectly and leaves you to doing other cooking tasks.

       The knife sharpening knifeblock is deffo widely baked but I've never seen one that can check to see if the blade is dull and sharpen it as appropriate.
