Not The Sharpest Knife In The Drawer?

Not you—we were talking to your favorite kitchen knife, or the one that used to be your favorite before it got dull, and it said yes, it’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer. It’s depressed, and it wants you to buy this Mozzbi tungsten and ceramic 2-stage sharpener. Self-adjusting for anything from paring knives to chef’s choppers, it can be used on any straight knife. A few pulls through the coarse side, and same on the fine side, and you’ll be slicing like d’Artagnan through Cardinal Richelieu's guards. Too soon?

Buds On A Wire

Did you know that 43% of all wireless ear buds are dropped someplace where you have to get help from angry subway employees to retrieve them? The other 57% are dropped where you'll never see them again. The answer to this problem? Wires. Like the 40” black wire (call it a cord) that comes attached to these stereo ear buds. Include a covered case that the cord wraps around, and (3) sets of silicone covers in small (white), medium (blue), and large (black) to fit your own personal earholes. Also, about $124 cheaper than the ones on the subway tracks.

Linus Is Retired

The little tyke appeared in 1952, a worried two-year-old looking for a little comfort in a cold world. With Lucy as a big sister, it's hard to blame him. The math never lies--Linus turned 70 this year, and he had to trade in his blue security blanket for a blue and white Social Security Card Blanket. Looks just like the card in your wallet (which you shouldn't carry in your wallet), and measures 68" x 34" in soft, comforting poly fleece. Even has your name on it: John Q. Public. All you add is a thumb.

Time Marches On

No, it doesn't; it runs out. See for yourself with this hourglass full of iron filings. The steel base has a magnet, so time flies when the glass is on it, and the filings make pretty stalagmites. Stick a magnet on the neck, however, and you can stop time altogether. Glass is 5-1/2" tall on the base and filings run out in about 40 seconds (three trips make a two-minute egg) with the magnet, somewhat longer without it.
