    That Rodgers pipe knife is a good piece of kit. I have one myself and never leave the house without it.

    I like that the blade is sharp. But so far havent had to use it.....just the tamper.

    Hmm... The blade really shouldn't be very sharp. It's meant for scraping, not cutting. Mine only barely has an edge. Did you buy that one second-hand? Maybe someone sharpened it after purchase.
