    Luck man!
    Speaking of odd knives a friend gave me a cheese knife to sharpen it has handles (one on each end) perpendicular to the blade and was the best part of a metre long

    last week i had a somewhat similar type knife to sharpen, but it was un-mountable in the WE, so i just used the 600 to 1000 diamond paddles on it, but it was chisel grind job.

    That Knife is an Ulu a knife originally used by Inuit woman for food prep and scraping skins.

    I have a couple of them. Very useful for dicing and chopping vegetables and as a general purpose knife.

    i got it from the next vendor over last sat…..and that is all she cuts with it – vegtables.

    That sound great especially with the native history behind it.

    Interesting.. they sell the same sort of dished chopping board at ULU.com:
    http://shop.theulufactory.com/6-1-2-bowl-with-5-Ulu-of-your-choice-5BBA.htm

    I wonder what came first… the ULU or the Mezzaluna.(half moon)
    ??

    The pretty chopping bowls must have come later…
    But, seem to be a logical progression..

    With VG10, one has to wonder about the pricing on the SHUN…

    You need really long vise screws and then you clamp the handle. It works well. You also need an angle gauge so you can figure the offset on the right hand side.

    The first mezzaluna was used in the 18th century. It was invented by Silvio Pacitti in 1706 and was popularly known as the pizza cutter.

    The Alaskan ULU (OO-loo) is an extremely versatile cutting tool crafted by the Native Alaskan people over five thousand years ago.
