Extend the Lifespan of Your Knife With a Sharpener
With continued use, even the best kitchen knives eventually start to lose their edge. When this occurs, it is important to sharpen the blade. Trying to use a knife with a dull blade can be tedious, annoying, or downright dangerous—the extra force required to manipulate a dull blade can, and does, lead to injury. A great knife sharpener will not only restore the blade to its former sharpness, but will actually help extend its overall lifespan.
Sharpeners aren’t just for use in your kitchen at home. You can benefit from a perfectly sharp knife if you work in the food industry, as well as while hunting or camping. A knife is considered an essential survival tool if you enjoy spending time outdoors. From cutting rope, to creating shelter, to starting a fire, a well-sharpened survival knife can save your life.
Today, there are numerous types of knife sharpeners and scissor sharpeners available for purchase today. The majority are electric sharpeners, as they are usually simpler and faster to use than manual sharpeners. An electric sharpener can help take most of the guesswork out of sharpening. Many high-quality models offer precision angle control and multiple sharpening stages to help ensure a flawless edge, whether the blade edge is serrated or fine.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
