After the olive orchard parable in Jacob 5, the prophet Jacob comments in Jacob 6:4–

These are great knife sharpeners. They are crossed metal rods embedded in a plastic handle that you rest on the edge of a table or counter-top. I don’t know how well they work on sporting knives, but on kitchen knives they are great. They sharpen quickly and are seemingly foolproof. I have the set of three devices, with a total of four sharpening surfaces (from coarse to smooth): restore, sharpen, hone, polish/straighten. Using steel rods avoids the dusty gritty mess of dry sharpening stones, or the messiness of stones that require water or oil. 10 easy and quick strokes on the sharpening set of rods, and 10 on the honing set will get a dull knife slicing through meat and tomatoes like butter.
