comment use of apostrophe in a sentence
There is also a kitchen tool called a chef's knife. These knives are still referred to as such when they are sitting in the store, waiting to be bought. We don't call them store's knives, even though they clearly belong to the store. And even if I go buy one, I still call it a chef's knife even though I am not a chef.
