    How do you keep your kitchen knife sharp?

    What about Ginsu, Farberware or Miracle Blade--knives that are never supposed to need sharpening? Anyone have any experience with these? I have an old Crock Stick ceramic rod system that I use and like. Used to have an Arkansas stone, but that was many years ago.

    Help me pick a FL for a gift to an art expert

    I use a mule for lighting works of art. McGizmo and Peak both make mules with high CRI emitters. The McGizmo is titanium and costs more than you want to spend, but the Peak Eiger mule in stainless steel or brass is a handsome light and well within budget.

    Beware Alkaline Cells

    I have been very careful to use lithium primaries in my lights, but today I happened to open up a little AAA light I have not touched in a couple of years, and, to my horror, there was an alkaline battery in it. And, yes, it had leaked. And, no, the light will not work now. I think I bought this...
