    This post brings to mind a recent Missouri Star ad. They have a plastic type ruler that has a 'carbine' edge that sharpens your blade as it passes by. Cool if it truly works.

    Missouri Star advertised a ruler lately that has some kind of 'carbine' edge that sharpens your blade as it rolls by. Cool if it works.

    Was it to square up the top or measure how long the borders should be? I have seen them use dry wall rulers at quilt in a day to do that.

    Looks like it would be great for squaring up a big quilt.

    I want to try it out, but I wonder if the inability to see through it will bw a problem.
    It certainly would be a problem for me.

    ROFLMAO!! Oh that was so good! The Carbide embedded ruler edges would work for sharpening although they won't fix nicks as good as a whetstone. Although if they ever sell a Carbine ruler maybe I could shoot my quilt if it got mouthy LOL I needed a good laugh thank you!

I can really see it for squaring up a quilt though, excellent for that with being able to order a long length.
