OH YEAH That is exactly what I was talking about!
The paring knife I have is on the counter all the time. it gets used for everything including cutting a fast food burger in half to share... I don't always clean and dry it perfectly... I do keep it VERY sharp... so sharp I have to warn people. Sooooo.... a hint maybe. I keep some 1000 grit wet dry sandpaper on the counter If I get a stain I can 'polish' it off pretty quickly.
My daughter will be here the 22nd and I will give her a choice of which of my laser knives she wants.
