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.
"Never put up with a dull knife again!"
"Inserting or removing a knife from the block automatically sharpens it
every time!" [half, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]
