    I see that you made it with a blunt point.

    Is that so she can't stab you with it?

    Yep. But in my years working knives in the kitchen I have found that choppers don’t need a point and with this one being a shorter blade it makes rocking the knife thru the veggies. It’s my design and it is perfect, the wife loves it. I made the handle small for her, when it comes to carrots, celery onions and bell peppers it’s the king

    I'm thinking Andre the Giant's finger would be a good measure.

    I was doing the 2020 Census and they shut us down, and sent us all home, for 2 weeks
    Shan works for the County and they shut them down until 4/6/20

    Thankfully for me the Razors continue to come in the mail so i am not climbing the walls and have stuff to do

    Shan has "Nested" on the couch and is binge watching "Boardwalk Empire"

    We have a few projects around the place that we are planning on getting done

    We are not on "Lockdown" up here YET in fact there isn't a single case or presumptive case in the Northern counties as of today

    Living rural where we do means that we are always at least 2 weeks deep for supplies and food, we always have Gloves and Respirators here anyway because of the materials out in the shop..

    I have to be a little careful with Shan because she has had small lungs since birth so we are always wary during Fire Season with the smoke and conscious of her getting a bad chest cold which has turned to Pneumonia a couple of times over the years.
    The only real difference in our everyday lives started on Monday the 9th, when I started taking our Temperatures each morning. Mostly I was worried about Shan at work because she interacts with so many people..


    So far so good, hope everyone is staying healthy
    Glen,
    Good to hear from you. Just wanted to let you know that my new custom scaled Satin Wedge arrived in the mail today. Looks terrific. Thanks for your work on this and stay safe.

    I was watching the news this morning and they were showing all the states that have been forced to stay at home. It was wrong as last night our governor told us that at 8 am this morning Colorado was shutting down. I still get to go to work but 4 days a week and my son still gets to go to work being in construction/electrition, but I'm not sure how much longer they will let the construction workers continue.

    I made a run to the store this morning and got everything on the list for groceries. I had to get a couple of different name brads but still got it all. The run on T.P. is still crazy and limiting certain items is still going strong. But I think things are starting to calm down on the hoarding of supplies. I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know that Colorado is now locked down as other states. At first it was just going to be Denver. But as of this monrning its the intire state.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    There is a travel ban on the North Coast. No one gets in, and if you leave, you can get back in unless you do a 14 day quarantine. There are several regions in the province with this in place. There are a lot of towns with one road in, and it’s closed off.
