In addition to all my other problems I have some fairly severe nerve damage in my left arm which effects my left hand quite a bit. Simply put my ulner nerve was crushed and made it impossible for me to close or open my hand all the way and also greatly reduced my fine motor control.

I had surgery to fix it a few years ago and the surgeon who did it said he had never seen that nerve flattened as bad as mine was. I guess you could call the operation a partial success. I regained about 80% use of my hand in all aspects but some tasks are still difficult. One of those tasks is peeling fresh veggies like potatoes and carrots. I just can't control a knife well enough and I tried all different types, tried electric peelers and many "traditional" peelers until I finally tried one of the Titan peelers.

It was like a gift from God. It worked for me and allowed me to peel veggies with ease. I loved it and then one day my wife decided to be nice and cook supper and in the process she threw away my Titan and of course none of the stores carried them any longer. It really upset me to no longer have this simple piece of cookware.

Well I finally got around to ordering one from ebay last week and it just arrived and when I opened up the package and seen it I felt like someone had just sent me a check for 10 billion dollars.

I agree with you and with Paula and Joy! I am happy for you. It does make a big difference to have small things that help. Enjoy your Titan peeler!
