The next time you are enjoying being out and away, and your knife needs a fine edge, roll down the car window. Yep, the top of that window, the rolled edge that has a little grit to it, puts a mighty fine edge on almost any knife. Just use long strokes like a crockery stick. :D

An old lady that I knew taught me that trick when I was a kid. Except that she used a Coke bottle, and a Bowie knife to demonstrate. :)

Stroking the blade on new blue jeans will put that final lazer edge on it.
I learned that from and old guy we called Stumpy. :)

My first job out of high school was working in a warehouse.
I said WAREHOUSE ... for those of you who know me and think I misspelled ... :roll:

Ennnnny-wayyyyy ... Found out quickly that a day of cutting heavy cardboard boxes put a hone on a blade that was incredible. I still use that trick today at work.
Once in a while a new computer or printer comes in and the box is thrown away. I take the opportunity to make long cuts with my Victorinox Swiss Army pocket knife.
Wow! By the time the box is cut up, the blade is back to its razor-sharp self.
Enjoyed the post about the top of the auto window. I'll have to try that.
I knew a guy that used to sharpen his knife on the heavy, denim fold over his zipper. Kinda lost track of him after he joined the Vienna Boy's Choir .... heh.
