We showed this in Genii years ago. I think it's made by "Fred." While it's very cool, Tenyo makes toys, not household appliances.

Ed, it was very fine of you to share this item. By no means does everyone here read Genii!

While it was $12 when it was widely available, the only one I could find right now is on amazon for $55 and it's shipped from France!

It makes it collectible as a knife sharpener.

Your Google Fu is better than mine. I could not find that stupid.com website. (Jokes await.)

Great find Mr.Wizard.

I can't imagine paying $55 bucks for that thing lol. That direct French creator/seller on [i]Amazon[/i] has nerve charging that.

I've been told this thing doesn't REALLY sharpen knives so I passed because for that price it is too expensive :)
