In Search Of

In Search Of This
Oh Internets, I thought it was possible for you to help me find ANYTHING.  And then this little hand held tool got the better of you.  No amount of Google or Ebay futility resulted in finding another one of these things.  So I’m channeling some Doobie Brothers and Takin’ It To The Streets.  Maybe the peeps can help a girl out.  Here’s the backstory:

The Craftsman you see up there belongs to one soon to be 87 year old Grandmother.  She uses it like a wee whetstone for her smaller knives.  I couldn’t tell you where or when she got it but it’s safe to say the old girl has had it for many, many moons.  And like most things, it eventually gets to the end of the road and needs to be replaced.  The problem is that she can’t find anything like it.

She’s been to stores.  I’ve been online.  Between the two of us, we’re savvy enough most of the time.  But this one has us stumped.  A traditional hand held knife sharpener isn’t a workable solution because when you get to be almost 87, your hands aren’t what they used to be.

Nothing would make me happier than to deliver a replacement.  Does anyone out there have any idea where to get something like this?  Or perhaps even refresh the one she’s got?  Inquiring minds want to know.
