Hello everyone.

When I was in NYC in 2006, I did see this great man sitting on his stool selling potato peelers in union square.
For some reason I didn't care buying one... something that I now regret. Now that he's gone.

I've heard that Joe's daughter has taken over the business and is still selling these peelers in the streets.

So, now I wonder if any of you, old forum monkeys, would help me get one of these peelers.
Of course I'll pay for it and also the shipping to Sweden.

If you are interested, send me a PM and we'll talk about it.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not 100% sure but I think this is the peeler that Joe used to sell.

AMAZON UK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Victorinox-Rex-Peeler-Met/dp/B000IAZBSI/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1266933773&sr=8-6)

And this is the manufacturer.
