Does anyone know of a company that sharpens microtome steel knives?  A
colleague here is have a problem with using disposable blades on his
cryostat.  The steel knife works well, but now needs sharpening.  We
long ago disposed of our knife sharpener and I seem to remember that
there are companies that does microtome knife sharpening.
