That sounds a little frightening considering the Xmas gift you are getting her... drive the point home... with a knife?!

Maybe try some flowers first.

Oh gee. Am I being too hard on you guys? Here's the simple version: 99% of all new knives come with rough, unpolished edges, even if it doesn't feel like it. The first time the knives are sharpened, follow the manufacturer's bevels so you can get rid of the results of their grinding wheels. Supposedly they have a reason to have beveled the blade the way they did. Consequent sharpening sessions can be used to profile the bevel to something more preferable and hopefully more useful.

Hm. I hadn't thought of it quite that way, but I see your point (!)

Update: She LOVED the knife/book combo, and my plan for her affection is on track! woot!
