A dull kitchen knife is dangerous.
Sharp knives cut easily. There’s no resistance and little chance of slipping. A dull knife requires more pressure to make a cut. More pressure increases the chance of the knife suddenly slipping and slicing you instead.
Avoid a rush to the emergency room to get stitches. Keep your kitchen knives sharp and in good working order.
How to Sharpen Your Kitchen Knives
Did you know you can sharpen serrated knives as well as flat-bladed knives? You sure can!
I show you how to keep your kitchen knives – both flat-bladed and serrated – sharp an safe in the following video:
(This video file is too big to upload to this website, so I had to put it on my Youtube channel and create a link for you.)
And by the way, this is the first video I’ve edited using iMovie on my iPhone!! I’m excited about learning how to do this! I look forward to getting better at creating videos. What a great way to show you how to do things! 🙂
Why I Like the Work Sharp Knife Sharpener
My husband gave me the Work Sharp Knife Sharpener as a stocking-stuffer for Christmas a few years ago. I had no idea what it was when I first saw it.
After learning what it is and how to use it, I highly recommend it as an essential tool for your kitchen.
If you’re like me, you have a drawer full of various knives that have been collected over the years. I just don’t have that pretty, uniform, matching set of cutlery. It seems cutlery is a common advertising specialty item at agriculture-related businesses here in the midwest.
We’re in the business of agriculture here on the acreage, so we have a rag-tag collection of knives, peelers, spatulas, bottle-openers, and koozies all with the names and phone numbers of various businesses. Oh, boy are the koozies a popular giveaway item! It’s very important to keep that beer cold 🙂
The Work Sharp Knife Sharpener works for all my various knives. I can even keep the serrated knives sharp. It takes up very little space in my knife drawer. It takes just a few minutes to sharpen each knife. Knives I would have tossed years ago are still working well because I sharpen them with this little gadget.
