Your mention of your knife reminds me of my favourite knife but it isn't kept in a tool box its in my kitchen drawer. When I was newly married I had such trouble peeling potatoes so my mother in law gave me one of her sharp knives that was already many years old. The blade must have been 6 inches long but hey I soon learnt to peel those spuds as fast as she could. That was back in 1961 and I still peel my vegetables with that knife. The blade has snapped a couple of times because it wore so thin and narrow and is now about two and a half inches. I even take it on holiday if I go self catering. It sure looks disgusting but its been a good friend. There are several better looking ones that friends and family have given me over the years but they just stay looking pretty in the drawer.
