Best Salesman in the World!

"They're made in Switzerland, by the people who make knives for doctors. You don't buy these because they're cheap, you buy them 'cause they're good. I'll show you what my machine'll do. Those slices are so thin you could read through them. Ladies, you garnish his dinner like that, you're on a second honeymoon!"

He's the best salesman in the world.

Update: RIP Joe Ades, the Gentleman Peeler, king of sales. 18 December 1934 - February 1, 2009

His name was Joe Ades. Unfortunately he passed away a year or so ago (but fortunately, we bought five peelers from him before he left us!). He's been profiled in the media a fair bit, with probably the best article being at Vanity Fair:

Ain't he great? He's in New York City, usually around Union Square. He never has an official license so the cops chase him around a bit, but usually they give him a break because he's obviously a classic guy.

I want one too, not because it's cheap, but because it's good.

Done! I'll be down at Union Square this very weekend. We buy one every week, actually. It's impossible not to.
