Superlatives!

Superlatives are all about extremes of opinion. The best, the most, the tallest. Superlatives are adjectives on steroids. However, you can use expressions to convey the idea of the highest achievement. The number one! A+! The first of his class. Blue ribbon service! State-of-the-art equipment. Cutting edge technology! (the cutting edge is the side of the knife that cuts). Now, imagine a button or gears that increase (or decrease) its capacity in levels, determined by the stops in the mechanism measured in the button. Each single stop is a notch. “Can you increase the height one notch, please”.  That is why top-notch is also and commonly used as  “the best of its kind”, “the one and only!”
