Subject: RE: Tech: Q for ancient order of bucket menders.
Isn't it being a bit fussy to say that your straw is too long - certainly for presentation purposes a long straw might look untidy but the excess would not cause a problem with regard to holding water

Therefore a temporary repair with a long straw and a bit sticking out would suffice to fetch the water necessary to wet the stone before sharpening the knife to cut the excess off

Sounds to me like a pretty poor excuse for inaction
