Knife Sharping

Cutting with a Dull knife can be dangerous. Having to work harder to slice through whatever you’re cutting means you’re more likely to cut yourself. Fortunately, it’s easy to sharpen a knife yourself with a whetstone, a Honing Rod, or even a Coffee Mug. Sharpening a knife is sometimes perceived as the most difficult knife care task; and it probably is. Modern stainless steel is very hard and, when sharpened properly, will hold a good edge for a very long time.
