Who knew that Steve Ramsey’s WWMM mugs were multifunctional?

I sharpened the blade on the new Groz block plane I picked up for Danger Boy.

I have actually used the bottom of a cup to sharpen the roastbeef knife in the kitchen for a two or three years now.

I swipe the edge of the knife on the ring which is not enameled.
It works great.

But of course a roastbeef kinife is used with a slicing movement and not like a razor.

Now that is funny! I can just see one of the guys over at one of the big woodworking magazines writing an article on sharpening on the bottom of a mug…slowly moving the plane blade around the ring on the bottom of the mug. :)

Would these be oil or water mugs? :)
